 Mini Cupcakes




Yeah, I know you have seen cupcakes before.But  It 's always  great to bake your own goodies. I made these little cuties for my girls and they adored them.

 Recipe for the cup cakes:

250 g butter
250g caster sugar
4 eggs
250 grams self raising flour
2 tsp of vanilla essence

Method:
Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs and add vanilla. Sieve the flour over the mixture and fold in gently using a metal spoon.  
Grease your patty pan tray, and place your paper patty pans and spray  them lightly with cooking oil spray.
Spoon the cake mixture into the cases.
Bake in a moderate oven (180 C,350 F) for 15-20 minutes.
Turn out of the  baking tray and them cool on a wire tray before you decorate. .


Butter Icing

75g  butter
225g icing sugar(sieved)
2tbsps milk
food colouring

Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl mix until well mixed.

Practice piping your frosting on a  plate, this will give you a great head start before you start decorating on your cupcakes..and you don't want crumbs on your frosting right.....
