Hey everyone,
So as you probably know by now because it's nearly the end of the month, October was Breast Cancer Awareness month. So inspired by this, i decided to make some very pink cupcakes!
The actual cupcake is very simple to make and i just used a basic recipe which i will include. Where the effort and fun really was is with the icing and decorating. I used frosting, pink sugar, Robert and Gordon wrappers and breast cancer sprinkles. All of these items were purchased from eBay.
200g unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup caster sugar
3 eggs
2 1/2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
1/2 cup milk
1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced oven. Line muffin or mini-muffin pans with paper cases.
2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, vanilla and sugar in a small bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition (mixture will separate at this stage). Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Stir in half the flour. Stir in half the milk. Repeat with remaining flour and milk until combined.
3. For 1/3 cup-capacity muffin pans use 2 level tablespoons of mixture. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes. Alternatively, for 1 tablespoon-capacity mini muffin pans use 1 tablespoon mixture. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
4. Stand cakes in pans for 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
