Christmas Lemon Banana Cupcake

Today,I bake 4 type of cookies and Christmas cupcake.Actually,I didn't plan to make cupcake but while I was browsing my bake book I saw Lemon cupcake recipe,there I go...
I bought 2 pack Santa's deco with marshallow and a pack of peep marshallow.A pack of Santa marshallow come with 2 Santa Clause,a Snowman and Christmas tree for $1.50 and Christmas Tree Peep for $0.99..what a deal!!..I don't have to make my own Santa ,actually I dunno how to make Santa but if I know how to make Santa's deco,why should I make one since I can just buy it at the store,right?Save a lot of time!!..Sorry,the icing is a mess...chocolate and then cream cheese icing to repair the damaged.

At first I decorate with chocolate icing,then I remember I have few pack of Santa's Marshallow,why not use it to display but if with Santa decoration the icing should be white as snow not chocalate..!!...nevermind la next time I make a proper icing..to match Santa.
Ingredients;
Generous 3/4 cup self raising flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
4 oz butter/115g butter,softened
generous 1/2 cup of superfine sugar
2 eggs,beaten
finely grated rind of 1/2 lemon
2-4 tbsp milk
1 mashed banana

Method:
1:Preheat oven to 375F/190C .Placed 12 paper cup in muffin pan.
2:Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl.Add the butter,sugar,eggs,lemon rind and enough milk to give a medium-soft consistency.Beat thoroughly until smooth.Divide the batter among the paper cases and bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until well risen and golden.Transfer to wire racks to cool.

Note:This original recipe don't include banana but since I have over ripe banana ,so I just add in.It's not bad with both lemon and banana flavor combine together..
