  • 10g Butter
  • A splash of milk

Method

Method:
  1. Mix the butter and sugar together in the big bowl until creamed.
  2. Put the flour in the middle-sized bowl and crack one egg in the small bowl.
  3. Put the cracked egg in the big bowl and mix the add one tablespoon of flour and mix then repeat until all the ingredients are in the bowl.
  4. Distribute in to cupcake cases and place in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. When you take them out of the oven stick a skewer or a sharp knife into the middle of the middle cupcake.
To Make the Buttercream:
  1. Put the icing sugar and softened butter in a middle-sized bowl and mix until smooth, if the mix is too thick add a splash of milk and mix.
To Decorate:
  1. Pipe or use a knife to ice the cupcakes with the buttercream icing.
  2. Use icing decorations, sprinkles, or other decorations to make them beautiful. We used white icing and coloured it and then cut out flower shapes for spring!

Our Editor, Victoria’s daughter Natasha has been baking with Alison, our star administrator, for several years once a week after school. Alison has fostered a love of all things baking in Natasha (now 13) and together they have been making some delicious creations. They will be sharing a recipe, along with their top tips for a show stopper bake with you each month. We hope you enjoy making these as much as they do – and eating them as much as we do!
