How to make cupcakes

Not to long ago I posted about cupcakes. I make cupcakes a lot and I love them here is the recipe I use to make these awesome treats.............................


125g butter, room temperature
1 cup  White Sugar
1 ¼ cups self raising flour
2 eggs
½ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Pinch of salt

¾ cup  Icing Sugar
5g butter
1 tablespoon boiling water


1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and flour a 12 x ½ cup capacity cupcake tin.
2. Place all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and beat for ten minutes or until smooth.
3. Divide mixture between prepared cake tin and bake for 10-12 minutes or until cakes spring back to the touch.
4. Remove and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
5. For icing, sieve icing sugar into a bowl, ensuring to remove any lumps. Place butter and boiling water in a small bowl and mix until butter has melted. Pour into icing sugar, a little at a time and stirring well between each addition until icing reached the desired consistency.
6. Spread icing sugar over cupcakes and decorate with icing flowers and edible glitter if desired.
