Scrumptious Cupcakes

Our calendars will soon be overflowing with birthday parties, baby showers and more. When your turn comes to host an event, we help you wow your family and friends by displaying the prettiest, most delectable-looking cupcakes around.


For the Vanilla Cupcakes

Makes 10 standard size cupcakes

250ml cake flour
7ml baking powder
A pinch of salt
70g castor sugar
1 extra large egg
80ml milk
60ml cooking oil
5ml vanilla essence

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add sugar. Whisk together the egg, milk, oil and vanilla essence. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Place BAKE ART cupcake cases in a muffin pan and divide batter equally between them. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 oC for 15 minutes. Once golden (and smelling delicious!) remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.

For the Butter Icing

200g butter or margarine, softened
500g icing sugar, sifted
5ml vanilla essence
30ml milk
Food colouring of your choice (I channelled my inner princess and used pink)

Cream together the butter and icing sugar. Add the vanilla essence and milk and mix to a lovely smooth consistency. Add a few drops of food colouring and mix well. Pop the butter icing into a piping bag (supplied in your BAKE ART kit) and get creative! Once you are satisfied with your piping skills, decorate with flags and sprinkles until you’re left with a collection of cupcakes that could pass as art.
