  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 10 holes of a 12-hole, 1/3-cup (80ml) muffin pan with paper cases. Place 1/2 cup (125g) Western Star Original Spreadable in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high until melted. Cool.

  2. Step 2

    Combine the flour, sugar, ginger and mixed spice in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Whisk the milk and eggs in a jug. Add to flour mixture with the melted Western Star Original Spreadable and stir until just combined (don’t overmix).
  3. Step 3

    Divide evenly among paper cases. Bake for 20 mins or until a skewer inserted in the centres comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  4. Step 4

    Place remaining Western Star Original Spreadable in a bowl. Use an electric mixer to beat until pale. Gradually add icing sugar, beating after each addition, until well combined. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a 1cm fluted nozzle.
  5. Step 5

    Pipe icing over the cupcakes. Sprinkle with cachous. Top with pretzels and icing stars, if using.
