Cupcakes, fairy cakes, or even patty cakes (if you're Australian)... Originally hailing from America, these bite-size frosted delights have always been a mainstay of children's parties but more recently they've taken the adult world by storm, too - and here at Tesco Real Food we're not ashamed to admit that we are very big fans.
And so to celebrate our love of all things cupcake-related we've decided to run a competition to find the best cupcake decorator in the nation. All you have to do is take a picture of your own Christmas cupcake creation and upload it here (you might also want to write a little bit about your masterpiece too). Two lucky winners will win the chance to cook alongside a celebrity chef for an afternoon and there are 10 runners up prizes too.
While you're in baking mode why not try out our Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting for a delicious sugary hit. If you fancy being a bit healthier, our Banana Cupcakes contain fresh banana so you really can have your cake and eat it too. Our Christmas Cupcakes are also a great way to get your kids involved - and look fantastic when they are iced.
If you're stuck on how to decorate your cakes, we can help with our "how to ice fairy cakes" video that will have your cupcakes looking amazing in no time.
