RatingDifficultyBeginner

Any one who follows my Instagram or Facebook Page will have seen over the weekend we had our own mini Bake Off. The little lady decided for her Egyptian Topic Homework this week she would make cupcakes, with little pyramids on top. Not to be outdone. The middle boy, in turn wanted to make some cupcakes off his own. One thing led to another and we now have enough cupcakes to feed a small army.

 110 g Golden castor sugar
 110 g Butter

We took the butter out of the fridge to soften for about half an hour before mixing the butter and sugar in a large bowl until it was a fluffy texture.

We don't actually own an Electric Mixer, so used a wooden spoon.

After adding the mixture into 12 cupcake holders we placed them into a pre heated oven (180 degrees) for 15 minutes.

After the had cooled on a wire rack we set about decorating the tops.

For speed and convenance I had pre purchased some ready to roll icing and some ready made buttercream icing, so we used this to decorate. We also decided to leave some plain.

Boy the fourth batch, we had run out of butter, so simply used margarine instead. The results were the same taste wise.
