I know Christmas is over (insert sad face here) but I couldn't resist sharing the recipe for these almond filled Christmas cupcakes with you! These were possibly some of my favourites I've ever baked as I'm a huge almond fan and am obsessed with white chocolate, which is what the frosting is made of! These are very Christmassy but I think you could bake them for New Year's too, perhaps decorated with silver balls? This recipe consists of a white cupcake using egg whites so we opted for white snowmen cases. The frosting is a very rich white chocolate/coffee flavoured one made with whipped cream. It is AMAZING but I imagine too much of it would make you feel sick!
You can access the recipe from Betty Crocker's Big Book of Cupcakes here. I did amend it slightly by adding some almond extract instead of just vanilla. As you can see, Emilia really enjoyed these...and Eduardo was very jealous with his boring rusk! Don't worry, he got a little bite too ;)
