  • Method

  • Cupcakes

    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°/Gas 4. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cupcake cases.
    2. Combine the flour mix, gluten free baking powder and sugar together in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the sunflower oil, soya milk and vanilla. Thoroughly combine all the ingredients.
    3. Spoon the batter into the cupcake cakes and bake for 18–20 minutes, or until well risen and firm to the touch. Leave to cool in the tin for at least 1 hour before icing.


    1. Sift the icing sugar into a large bowl and add the dairy-free butter and vanilla. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth and creamy.
    2. Spoon into a large piping bag fitted with a plain nozzle and pipe a swirl on top. Smooth out to make a snowy effect.  Add the chocolate shards for arms, a couple of buttons, eyes, mouth and a carrot nose. Leave to set for 30–60 minutes in the fridge before serving.
