Ingredients For The Cupcakes
250g Caster Sugar
250g Self Raising Flour
4 Medium Free Range Eggs
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

500g Icing Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla Exract

1* Beat the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
2* Add the flour and eggs and the vanilla extract and mix. (if doing by hand then add it slowly but don't over mix)
3* Pop cake cases into tins (it will make about 24 fairy cases or 16 - 18 muffin tins) Divide the mixture between the case
4* Pop the cupcakes in the oven at a pre heated temperature of 180oC
5* Bake the cakes for about 18 - 20 minutes or until golden brown.
6* Remove from the oven and pop onto a rack to cool.
7* To make the buttercream, mix the butter and icing sugar to a bowl and beat. (you may want a little splash of milk)
8* Add a small amount of food colouring to the buttercream and the vanilla extract.
How To Decorate The Cupcakes
I always use disposable icing bags and plastic reusable nozzles.
Add the buttercream to the icing bag, take your first cupcake and follow the cupcake case around the outside and then make you way to the middle for the perfect swirl. (There are some fabulous tutorials on you tube)
Now add your favourite sweets and get ready to party!
