Sunday Funday: Easter Cupcakes

 
 
Hello Lovelies,
 
As Easter is now coming up I thought it would be appropriate to do some Easter baking. Today I made some chocolate cupcakes with a mini eggs nesting in grass.
Read on to find out how to make these.
 
 

 
Cupcake Ingredients:
150g Marg or Butter (I use Stork)
170g Caster Sugar
170g Self-Raising Flour
40g Cocoa Powder
3 medium eggs

Vanilla Extract

Buttercream Ingredients:

140g butter (again, I just used stork)
225g Icing Sugar 
2-3 drops of Green food colouring - Gel or paste is best to use
bag of mini eggs for decoration
 
Recipe:

1) Pre-heat oven to 200 / Gas 6. Line a muffin tin with your chosen cases (you will need about 10-12)

2) Mix together butter and sugar until sugar has all melted in

3) In a separate jug crack 3 eggs and lightly whisk

4) Gradually fold in eggs, flour and cocoa powder (sifted) to the sugar and butter mixture & add in a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
5) Spoon the mixture into cupcake cases evenly and bake for 10 - 15 mins, turning half way through.

6) Leave to cool and make your buttercream icing


7) Cream butter and sieve in icing sugar until smooth and lump free, add in your food colouring until you get the desired colouring.
 
8) Pop this into a piping bag with a small hair grass nozzle and then decorate with mini eggs
