Scottish Cupcakes

Rosie had a shared picnic lunch at school yesterday and she needed to bring in food that represented something from her culture.
I wasn't sure that food from her Maori culture would be too popular, I didn't think many of her peers would enjoy pork bones and puha! :-)
Taff then suggested that something from their Scottish heritage might be an option. Taff's Nana is a Mackenzie so we looked up the traditional Mackenzie tartan and I made some simple cupcake toppers (made easy with my new Fiskar punch!) to pop into a batch of chocolate cupcakes. You can find the recipe here.
I made these late at night and was rather blurry eyed when icing them, but Rosie was happy with them and they were all gobbled up by her classmates. :-)
