Cupcakes and Mulled Wine

I guess one of the perks of living with two other girls is that we have days like "cupcake baking accompanied by homemade mulled wine". I am personally not a huge fan of sweets and am really not a great baker, but watching the girls bake was fun, and the Mulled wine was delicious.
Mulled wine and freshly baked cupcakes were the perfect accessory for a cold Sunday in London, the only problem with the whole thing was that the mulled wine tasted so good I didn't actually realise how much I was actually drinking, that resulted in me being quite tipsy at 2PM in the afternoon. By 5PM the cupcakes had been forgotten and the Wine had completely taken over.
The warm wine and the Christmas themed Cupcakes definitely got everyone in a Christmas mood!

For the Mulled Wine:
1 bottle red wine (we ended up using about 12) 
cloves (as many as you like) about 6
1/2 tsp nutmeg
sliced oranges
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup brandy (we used rum)

Cinnamon Swirl cupcakes 

Red Velvet
