How to make Christmas Darling Cupcakes

In only one hour, you can make around 18 yummy and sweet Christmas Darling Cupcakes that you can enjoy with the whole family and friends in Christmas Eve.


  • A box of milk chocolate cake mix
  • A small box of pudding mix (chocolate)
  • Three beaten eggs
  • 150 ml of vegetable oil
  • 100 ml of water
  • 150 gr sour cream
  • Two teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • Vanilla buttercream
  • Black frosting
  • M&Ms chocolate


1The first thing to do is to heat the oven to 350 Fahrenheit-degree or 180 celsius-degree. While waiting for the oven until it reaches the heat, you may use the time to prepare for other ingredients. Here, you may prepare two muffin tins that have been lined with 18 parchment papers.

2Then, you may prepare a bowl equipped with an electric mixer. Fill the bowl with the cake mix ingredients and beat for around 3 minutes until cake mix is getting dissolved. Also, make sure that you scrap the bowl occasionally so that all mixture can be completely combined.

3Next, you need to pour the mixture evenly into each muffin tin. If you have finished dividing the mixture, you can continue to put the muffin tins into the oven. To bake the cake, the time needed is usually around 18 to 22 minutes. You can check the cake by using a toothpick.

4Simply insert the toothpick into the cake, and if it comes out clean, then the cake is completely cooked. After that, you need to allow the cake to cool for several minutes. To continue, you need to top each cake with the buttercream, black frosting, and the candies.

5To start the topping, you need to place the buttercream in a plastic bag and equip with a large round tip on the corner of the bag. Then, pipe the buttercream like a swirl on top of each muffin cake. Also, don’t forget to give a black frosting line around the buttercream swirl. For the M&Ms candies, you may decorate them on top of the buttercream.

Now, your homemade Christmas Darling Cupcakes are ready to serve. Enjoy this as the dessert after you have finished your Christmas feast. Not only easy to make, but these muffin cakes are beautiful and delicious as well. So, make sure you make some at home simply by following this recipe.
