Muffins and cupcakes

Baking cupcakes

Last week my daughter and i experimented baking and decorating cupcakes.

We were not very successful because we forgot about the cupcakes baking in the oven and they end up a bit dry. Thanks God that there was enough icing and decoration to put on them and cover them up.

My daughter love eating them though:

I used a basic cupcake recipe from a book i bought from a charity shop by not a known author. So here it is:

115g margarine

115g caster sugar

115g self-raising flour

2 eggs

All you need to do is mix all the ingredients into a bowl and beat until smooth. After separate the mixture between 12 paper cases set in a muffin tin. Bakes them in a preheated oven 180 C for 12-15 minutes.

The cupcakes will be ready when they are well risen and the cakes spring back when press with a fingertip.

Leave the cupcakes to cool and prepare the topping with:

50g butter

115g icing sugar

pink food colouring

As soon as the cupcakes are cool you can start decorate them as you feel like it. I am not the most creative person in the world and you can see that from my pictures above.

Anyway my daughter loved them as you can see.

Last weekend i bought a different cook book and i hope it will teach me a bit more about baking.
