Recipe: Vanilla Christmas Cupcakes

Eeeeeks, merry Christmas!!!
Today is the day, the most wonderful day of the year! I hope you are having a cozy and magical day with your loved ones!
In case some of you need a last minute recipe for the holiday for which you will surely have all ingredients at home anyways, here I've got a Christmas cupcake recipe for you.
Here's what you need for the dough:
- 250g flour, 250g sugar, 5 tea spoons of baking powder, 250ml milk, 100g butter, 2 big eggs
- Cinnamon, fresh vanilla and some vanilla sugar

What you need for the frosting:
- Fresh vanilla, cinnamon, orange zest
- Curd cheese, butter and powder sugar (the amount depends on the consistency you prefer, I personally like using lots of powder sugar and only a little bit of butter and curd cheese so make it creamy)
Mix all ingredients for the dough and stirr everything until it's a creamy mixture.
Next, fill the creamy dough into your cupcake paper baking tins (fill about two third with dough) and let the cupcakes bake in the oven for about half an hour at 180°C (depending on your kind of oven: because ours is heatened with gas, time and temperature sometimes vary a bit and I can't leave the kitchen for too long without looking at the cupcakes).
Afterwards, mix the powder sugar with the curd cheese and the butter, add some vanilla, orange zest and cinnamon. Put it into the fridge so that you can then easily spread it over your cupcakes when it has the perfect consistency.
Done! :)
Enjoy your cupcakes and have super cozy holidays!!
Happy Christmas!
