Easy-Peasy Cupcakes

Added by: on Feb 2nd, 2017
One of my new year's resolutions was to be more creative with my daughter Arabella. I am a complete neat freak and so am not a fan of sticking, gluing, painting etc therefore I figured we can get creative in the kitchen instead. We recently made the Oreo and Reese's Chocolate Sandwiches .. more >

Preheat the oven to 180 C.


Mix the butter and the sugar together and then beat in the eggs - Arabella used an electric whisk so it was quicker and easier but you could do it by hand - good for building muscles!!


Fold in the flour and mix well - we used a wooden spoon for this part.


Spoon the mixture into cake cases and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. We did 15 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack.


Whilst these were cooking and cooling, we started making the icing. Beat the butter and the icing sugar together until soft with one teaspoon of vanilla extract. If you have it, mix in some pink food colouring. We didn't have some unfortunately. Arabella used the electric whisk once again and it took about 5 minutes.


Using a blunt knife, spread the icing across the cakes - I am terrible at this and have no idea how to make them "even". Thankfully we were going for the "homemade" look.


Arabella was in charge of decorating - she sprinkled the hundreds and thousands on some and on others she put the sprinkles on a plate and rolled the cake in them. Then they were all topped with a marshmallow.


Finally eat!!


These were really simple and quick to make - we made them from start to finish including clearing up in under an hour. Plus they were absolutely delicious. We only decided to make them that afternoon so did not have too many "decorations" however we have decided we will make pink and red ones (using food dye) with heart haribo sweets for valentines and then yellow ones with mini eggs for easter. I feel some weight gain coming on!!! A fantastic child friendly recipe.
