I was thinking of making the same thing - here's a recipe from about.com which is usually pretty good http://britishfood.about.com/od/christmasrecipes/r/Christmas-Cupcake-Recipe.htm
Just make sure you put your oven at 180 deg C (as they give it in Farenheit!)

I made some a few weeks ago. I put about 4 cases in each muffin tin and used my usual recipe. I havent tried one yet but they look perfect. I will ice them as gifts in the next week or so.

Make these tie them up in cellophane with ribbon and give them as gifts always get good comments. Texas Muffin tins mini cakes.
1/2 kg fruit, 1 cups sugar, 1 cups water, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp mixed spice, 1/4 pack of butter, 1 Tbsp golden syrup. Boil the listed ingredients together, let cool. Add 2 eggs, 2 cups plain flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp ginger and a pinch of curry powder (yes curry powder. It brings out the spices in the cake) Mix well cook them in greased texas muffin tins with a circle of baking paper in the bottomtemperature 125-130c for 75-80 mins test with a toothpick, they do rise so don't think the are too small.When cookedtake out of oven and cool 10 mins or so wrap tin and all up in a clean towel leave to cool and keep wrapped tilli decorate them. My preference is brandy glaze.
Brandy Glaze
1 heaped Tablespoon Apricot jam. 2 Tablespoons brandy. place Jam and brandy in a small saucepan and heat gently together, whisking until throughly blended. Now using a brush paint some of the mixture over the top of the cakes then arrange nuts of glace fruit on top and then brush generously over the whole top of topping. It leaves a wonderful shine and tastes great, and nuts will stick on. Let dry and wrap in cellophane. You can easily double glaze if need be.
Recipe and glaze is from kiwitrish a pro cake decorator on here, i have used a few other ones over the years but find this with the curry powder nice and tasty and moist. Cause my oven is hot i always sit a magazine on oven rack then tin, it stops bottom from burning, and cook fairly low temp so just watch them near the end of cooking.

Let's not be smug. Nothing gets a fundy to donate like trdgaey. And there are a 100 million of them in the US. I'm sure Focus on the Family is sending out begging letters as we speak.*sigh* I could've bilked these people when I had the chance...Damn ethics!
