In tomorrow's post, I will tell you about a party for a friend. This is a cupcake bouquet that I baked in addtion to the birthday cake.
125gm Castor sugar
125 self raising flour
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
2-3 tbsp milk (optional, just in case mixture is too stiff)
Preheat oven to 200 deg C
Cream butter and sugar till creamy, then add eggs and finally flour and vanilla essence.
If mixture is too stiff, add a tbsp of milk or 2.
Spoon into cup cake cases and place in oven for around 12 minutes depending on size of cup cake, turning the cake trays halfway through and bake for another 8 - 12 mins.
Vanilla butter cream
125 gm butter

Cream the butter and then slowly add in the icing sugar and vanilla essence and mix till it is light and fluffy.
