For the cupcakes

Preheat the oven to 180c/ 350f/ Gas 4, and line a 12-hole baking tray with cupcake cases.

In a large bowl, add the gluten-free flour, dairy-free spread, caster sugar, egg replacer/eggs, baking powder and dairy-free milk, and mix until well combined. Then add the mincemeat, and stir gently.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool for around 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Decorate the cupcakes with the frosting, and add some decorations if desired.
