It’s Easter Sunday! It’s time to get creative! Here is my guide to making some quick and easy cupcakes with a helping hand from the Easter bunny!
To make the vanilla cupcakes all you need is:
Delicious Alchemy Vanilla sponge mix 400g (or another sponge mix)
Capful vanilla essence
3 large eggs, beaten
100 ml milk
180g unsalted butter
To make chocolate cupcakes mix in a few spoonfuls of cocoa powder to your mixture
For the topping:
12 sugar chocolate eggs
150g icing sugar
2 drops yellow colourant
2 oz unsalted butter
1) Pre-heat oven to 180 °C
2) Put half of cake mix, soft butter and eggs into a bowl and whisk
3) Slowly add the milk, a capful of vanilla essence and the rest of the cake mix and whisk
4) Add mixture to cupcake cases
5) Bake for 18-20 mins until risen and slightly golden in colour
6) Leave to cool
For buttercream icing, beat the butter until soft. Sift in the icing sugar and beat well until smooth and creamy. Beat in the yellow food colouring. Spread on top of the cupcakes.
For decoration, add sugar chocolate eggs and chicks
In the basket I have marshmallow easter shapes and easter bunny chocolate lollies from Aldi. Do make sure you check the ingredients carefully when purchasing!
