Cupcakes trial

9 Aug – its the national day holiday. happy birthday singapore! birthdays always reminds me of – cake! since i didnt had much to do, i decided to whip up something… cupcakes!

so from my mom’s recipe book – a quick n easy recipe for the cupcakes; 10 eggs (yoke n whites seperated), 450 gm sugar, 450 gm self raising flour, 500 gm melted butter and 1½ tsp vanilla essence.

method: beat egg whites till peak, add sugar a bit at a time. add egg yokes one at a time, n mix well. add n mix in the butter, flour n essence. Place in cupcakes n bake at 150 degrees celcius

and there you go – bare naked cupcakes fresh from the oven:

then dress them up 🙂 frost with creamy sugar icing. simple icing recipe: Mix 250gm icing sugar, 2 eggs (whites only) n squeeze of lemon juice. Beat for around 15 mins.

decorating the cupcakes was fun… we used draggees, icing flowers, thousandsinhundreds, sugared crystal flakes n etc…

they don’t only look good, they taste yummy. cupcakes anyone? 🙂

    I usually love my cupcakes just bare naked like in your first picture but you did a wonderful job decorating these. They are beautiful and look delicious. Did you have to use tweezers to get all that confetti on the cupcakes just right? I don’t think I’d ever have the patience to make them look so pretty. I wish I had one right now! 😉

    thks! yeah, its good on its own. n it sure goes well with tea too. used my clean hands to decorate the cakes, cos it was too cumbersome to use tweezers. will whip out another batch for my mom’s bday nxt week. hope to share the pics with u 😉

  7. […] was looking for a 3-tier stand to put her cupcakes. I found it here at S$72. Think she would like its design, but not the price tag.  All […]
