Sunday Funday: Pretty Cupcakes

I did again, on a roll baking cupcakes but I need to stop as I'm going to put on so much weight 'taste testing' them all haha.
Today we have some pretty vanilla confetti cupcakes - yummmeee! Read on to find out how I made these.

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

2tsps Vanilla Extract

Buttercream Ingredients:
140g butter (again, I just used stork)
225g Icing Sugar
confetti sprinkles for decoration ( you can even add them through the sponge)


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 and flour (sifted) to the sugar and butter mixture, then add the 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) In a bowl, cream butter and sieve in icing sugar until smooth and lump free, add in your cream and mix until all combined. You can add more icing sugar to thicken if the mixture goes too runny
8) Pipe onto cupcakes and top with a strawberry then a little dusting of icing sugar

What do you think of these cupcakes? Sometimes plain can be best at times :)
