As a mum I find it easier to have recipes that don't require much work. These cupcakes are just a throw it all in and mix it round recipe followed by some very easy assembling. Here is the cupcake recipe I like to use....
1 cup SR flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 cup caster sugar
90 gr softened butter
2 tablespoons milk
Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees.
Line medium sized cupcake tray with patty pans.
Mix all the ingredients in a mix master until smooth.
Spoon into tray.
Bake in the oven until golden.
Cool on a tray before decorating.
The secret (or not so secret) ingredient is Betty Crockers frosting found in the baking section of the supermarket. It is every mums dream! I always have some ready to go in the fridge.These cupcakes used...Mini M+Ms, Natural Confectionery Jelly Beans, Nestle White Chocolate Buds, Black Jelly Beans (from the Chemist) and Queen Writing Fudge.
