Ingredients

  • Cupcakes:

  • 1 box Blue Diamond Almond Flour Chocolate Cake Mix

  • 2 eggs

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • ½ cup water

  • Tree Topper:

  • 4 tablespoons Blue Diamond Almond Flour

  • ¼ cup sugar

  • 1 egg white

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 12 edible pearl sprinkles

  • ¼ cup powdered sugar

  • Frosting:

  • 1 ¼ cup unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 3 ½ cups powdered sugar

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 4 drops of green food coloring

Directions

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

  2. 2

    In a bowl simply add Blue Diamond Chocolate Cake Mix, eggs, vegetable oil, and water. Whisk together until smooth.

  3. 3

    Using a medium sized cookie scoop fill the lined cupcake pan. Bake the cupcakes for 16 minutes.

  4. 4

    While the cupcakes are in the oven, you can prepare the cone batter to make the adorable tree toppers. First, in a bowl add 1 egg white and whisk until soft peaks form. Then add sugar slowly, continue to whisk until glossy.

  5. 5

    Next, add Blue Diamond Almond Flour, vanilla extract, and the melted unsalted butter. Fold ingredients together until smooth with no clumps.

  6. 6

    On a parchment paper lined baking sheet, add a spoonful or 1 tablespoon of cone batter. Use the back of the spoon to create a 2 ½ inch wide circle and about 2 mm in thickness. Repeat this process 12 more times. Bake the circles for 6 minutes at 350 degrees fahrenheit.

  7. 7

    Quickly and carefully roll the dough around a large piping tip to create a cone shape. Hold the cone together until set and repeat the process to make 12 cones.

  8. 8

    While the cupcakes cool you can make the buttercream! In a bowl whisk softened unsalted butter until it becomes a whipped consistency. Add powdered sugar and milk. Continue to mix until frosting becomes light and fluffy.

  9. 9

    Add ¼ of frosting to a separate bowl and mix green food coloring to it. Fill green frosting in a piping bag fit with a small #14 star tip and the rest of the white frosting with a medium sized round tip #807. Set aside.

  10. 10

    Pipe white frosting onto each cupcake and place a cone on top. Now take your green frosting and cover the cone with little stars. Once covered, the cone will look like a little tree.

  11. 11

    Top each tree with an edible pearl sprinkle and dust the trees with powdered sugar to look like snow.

    Enjoy these delicious Blue Diamond holiday tree cupcakes!
