Ingredients

Utensils:
Scales
Piping bags and nozzle (plain)
Bowls
Spatula
Spoons
Measuring spoons
Cupcake Cases and Tray
Ingredients:
88g unsalted butter
87g margarine
175g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 eggs
175g self-raising flour
50ml milk
Multi-coloured star sprinkles
Silver crisp pearl balls
Pink and purple hundreds and thousands
For the butter cream:
112g unsalted butter
113g margarine
1 tsp vanilla extract
375g icing sugar
25g white chocolate melted

Method

Tips:
Take out all of the ingredients before you start
Crack eggs into a separate bowl before adding into the mix
Tidy up as you go along
Method:
Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180oc, fan 160oc. Line a muffin tin with 12 paper cases. In a bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla, then beat the eggs, one by one, each with a spoon full of flour, until smooth. Fold in the remaining flour, then stir in the milk until combined. Divide between the cases.
Bake for 20-25 mins, until risen and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
To make the butter cream, beat the butter in a bowl until pale and creamy, then add the vanilla. Add the icing sugar in 3 stages, beating between each addition, until fully combined. Stir in the melted white chocolate.
Leaving the bases intact, use a teaspoon to remove a little of the sponge from the middle of each cake. Mix the sprinkles, then spoon about 1 teaspoon into each hole.
Spoon the icing into a piping bag with a round (1 cm) nozzle and pipe a swirl onto each cupcake. Decorate with more of the sprinkle mixture. The iced cupcakes will last for 5 days in a sealed container.
