Christmas cupcakes ( Eggless )

 Happy Christmas to all of you 
A Cupcake is a small cake designed to serve one person , frequently baked in a small thin paper / aluminum cup. Cupcakes are cute and appealing to eye and it will be great to munch with tea / coffee.
  Cupcake is called as fairy cake in British English and as patty cake / cupcake in Australian English .
    The making of cupcake is same as the larger cakes and decorations like frosting are also done on cupcakes.
  As this cake are baked in small cups , these bake much faster than normal layered cake.
 I named this cake as Christmas cupcake because of its colour resembling to Christmas like red and green. This cake is simple patterened cake .

Requirements :
All purpose flour – 2 cup
Powdered Sugar – 1½ cup
Butter – 4 tbs
Curd / Yogurt – 1 cup
Vanilla Essence – 2 drops
Pista Essence – 2 drops
Baking powder – ½ tsp
Baking soda – ¼ tsp
Method :
 Sift the flour , baking powder and baking soda  twice.
Mix the butter and sugar well till fluffy.
Mix in the yogurt and mix for five minutes.
Add the flour mixture into wet ingredients and fold into it.
Mix on one direction for five minutes.
Divide the batter into two halves.
To an half of the batter add the green color and to the other red color.
Mix well till the color and batter is blended well.
Add the vanilla essence to red color batter.
Add the pista essence to the green color batter.
Preheat the oven to 220 degree Celsius.
I used aluminum molds for making cupcakes.
Grease the molds with butter and dust with flour.

Add a small ladle of green batter on the mold , then add half ladle of red batter.

With the fork slightly stir to mix the two colors of batter.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.

Let it cool and serve.Look at the lovely pattern of the cupcake. 

I topped the cupcake with lemon glaze and some sprinklers.

Colorful Christmas cupcake is ready to serve.
Notes :
If using powder color means, mix 1/8 spoon of the color in a tablespoon of water and use as required.
Any flavoring  agent can be used.
