Mini Sweets Party Cupcakes August 29, 2012

A simple but pleasing, for the kiddies, cupcake. Made for my Granddaughter’s 1st Birthday Party.

 

Ingredients for the cupcake

 

110g butter, at room temperature

225g caster sugar

2 eggs

150g self raising flour, sifted

125g plain flour, sifted

120ml milk, at room temperature

1 tsp vanilla extract

 

Ingredients for the topping

 

200g milk chocolate

75g butter

Mini Smarties or other mini sweets

 

Method

 

Preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4 and line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper cases.

Cream together the butter and sugar until the mixture is pale and smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing for a few minutes after each addition.

Combine the two flours in a separate bowl. Measure the milk into a jug and add the vanilla extract to it.

Add one-third of the flours to the creamed mixture and beat well. Pour in one-third of the milk and beat again. Repeat these steps until all the flours and milk have been added.

Spoon the mixture into the cake cases, filling them to about two-thirds full. Bake for about 25 minutes or until slightly raised and golden brown.

Remove from the oven and leave in the tin for 10 minutes before placing onto a wire rack to cool completely.

While the cupcakes are cooling, melt the butter and milk chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Once melted, remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Spread over the cupcakes and decorate with mini sweets.

 

Tips: Don’t put the melted chocolate/butter mixture in the fridge to cool as it will set hard, although it can be microwaved to soften it again 😉
