Cupcakes

Hey 🙂 I thought I would do another baking post because my last one was pretty popular and everyone seemed to enjoy it! I had a day off today from revision and I decided it would be the perfect time to do some baking. This time I did something a bit simpler and went with cupcakes. I used a typical cupcake recipe (below) and then had fun with the icing. It made 24 large cupcakes but I ran out of space in the trays so I decided to do some mini ones too – these are so cute by the way and would make perfect petitfours for parties. For making the cakes I more-or-less put everything together in a bowl and mixed it. Also, don’t forget to heat the oven to 180 degrees C and leave them in for 20 minutes.

Ingredients:

300g Self-raising Flour

300g Caster Suger

300g Unsalted butter (I used Stork which is great for making cakes)

6 medium eggs (whisked)

1/2 tbsp Vanilla Extract

For the icing I used Betty Crocker chocolate icing, which is my absolute favourite icing to use because it’s effortless. I used piping bags with a nozzle to put the icing on the cupcakes. I then decorated them with mini marshmallows, edible glitter and skulls (this seems weird but I only had Halloween decorations!) However, putting icing on like this uses it up very quickly and therefore I was unable to do many in this way.

Have a good evening! 🙂
