Hello all. I hope everybody had a lovely day and spread the love! There was certainly lots of displays of it around my home.
I decided to do a little baking on this splendid day! I have a three year nephew who loves cake, so I made these for him… and for you.
So here’s my really, REALLY easy cupcake idea! You will need:
4oz soft margarine
4oz caster sugar
4oz self-raising flour
1tsp baking powder
1/4tsp vanilla extract
red food dye
Just mix altogether and dispense into your cupcake holders.
– prep: put the oven on and put your cupcake holders on a tray!
– sift the flour to let air in it!
– Put cling film on your scales so the butter doesn’t stick to the sides
I had a bit of trouble with the red food dye, it looked more orange so we just kept putting more in. We used a food paint rather than a liquid dye which could change the structure of the final bake. It came out pretty red, so it was all good!
Cook in pre-heated oven (200c/400f/gas 6) for 15-20 mins.
While they are cooking make some butter icing. You will need:
6oz icing sugar
Simply mix together!
Decorate as you see fit but wait for the cakes to cool!
Feel loved, and enjoy!
