Now that winter is swiftly on its way you’ll be spending a lot more time snuggled inside in the warmth and what better way to spend your Snuggly Sundays than to make cupcakes. Here is a quick and easy step to step guide to make 12 cupcakes.
Start by gathering all your ingredients. You will need:
– 100g butter/margarine
– 100g caster sugar
– 100g self raising flour, sifted
– 2 eggs
– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence (optional)
STEP 1: Pre heat the oven to 180 o, gas mark 4, and fill a baking tray with 12 cupcake holders.
STEP 5: Now that the mixture is ready. Distribute evenly in to the cupcake casings and place into the oven to bake for 10-20 minutes. After 10 minutes check on the cupcakes and push a cocktail stick into the centre of each cake. If the stick comes out wet then put back in the oven for another 10 minutes.
STEP 6: TIME TO DECORATE.
This is the most fun part you can personalise your cupcakes or you can just make a plain icing using some icing sugar and a dribble of water.
