These cupcakes are beautifully light and fluffy and extremely easy to make – perfect for a very girly tea party.
Here’s how (makes 10 cupcakes):
- 100g self-raising flour
- 100g caster sugar
- 100g unsalted butter
- pinch of salt
- 2 medium eggs
- seeds of 1/2 vanilla pod or 1 tsp vanilla extract
Cream Cheese Icing:
- 100g cream cheese
- 100g butter
- 250g icing sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- pink and yellow food colouring
Preheat the oven to 175C (155C fan oven) and line a cupcake tray with paper cases. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Spoon into the paper cases and bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown. To make the cream cheese icing mix all the ingredients together until smooth. Mix in the different food colouring to make pink and yellow icing. Leave cakes to cool completely before icing.
