So I decided to invest in some proper colouring, like the little pots of concentrated gel rather than the ordinary supermarket stuff. So obviously pink was my first choice of colour! On the way home I popped into TK Maxx and found the BEST sprinkles ever to compliment my new colored paste. My mom had taken me to the cash and Carry a few weeks earlier and I had bought some new tulip style cases that I was dying to try out too! All the perfect excuses to bake. So I made vanilla cupcakes with pink frosting and sprinkles!

The Cupcake batter

2 and 3/4 cups of flour

1/2 a cup of cake flour

1 Tablespoon of baking powder

1 Teaspoon of Salt

8 ounces of unsalted butter

2 and 1/4 cups of sugar

3 large eggs and 1 egg white

1 cup of milk

1 and 1/2 tablespoons of vanilla extract (vanilla essence will also do)

Method

Sieve all dry ingredients together, then add butter and whisk to a pastry like texture, then slowly add in the wet ingredients until there are no lumps and the mixture is thick and creamy.  Then bake in oven at 180˚ until they are golden on top, time depends on how much batter is used in each cupcake!

The frosting

60g of unsalted butter

50g of icing sugar

a dash of pink food colouring (add a little at a time until you get the colour you want!)

blend together and pipe onto the cupcakes once they’ve cooled.

Decorate with sprinkles!
