As a nice change from all the savory snacks served at my birthday party, I decided to make a couple batches of miniature cupcakes. Never done them before, but couldn't resist the cute baking tray at the store as well as the tiny cupcake liners so I was optimistic to give it a try!
I used a plain cupcake recipe similar to this one and baked them in the oven for about 10-12 minutes untill they start to brown just a bit and a toothpick comes out clean. The first two batches I filled with strawberry jam using a plastic squeeze bottle like this which is actually quite handy for lots of things in the kitchen and costs nearly nothing. (for all the dutchies, I bought my one at Hema :)
For the last batch I added some chocolate chips to the batter and sprinkled some on top before putting them in to the oven. If you leave the chocolate chips to sit in the batter for about 10 minutes, they start to desolve and give a delicious chocolate flavour to your cupcakes. As for decorating I used edible silver glitter, plain white frosting, cream cheese frosting and the chocolate ones I dipped in melted chocolate for the ultimate mini chocolate cupcake <3
