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? 🙂
