Cupcakes Galore

Made beautiful, Sprinkle, Sweetie Topped Cupcakes for my niece's 1st birthday, they were a huge success and the children loved them, especially my son, Monroe who managed to eat far more than his fair share! For the adults I made Coconut and Lime Cupcakes with a delicious cream cheese frosting, I thought they matched the glorious Summers day.

Cupcakes are great fun to make and you can make them match the occasion by decorating them any which way. You can buy gorgeous decorations for them, little flowers, chocolate sprinkles, hundreds and thousands to name but a few. My children love getting all the toppings together and then fitting as much on as possible, can get a bit messy but its great fun and they all look...unique!

Sprinkle, Sweetie Topped Cupcakes

10oz Self Raising Flour

40z Caster Sugar

1 tube of Smarties

2oz Milk Chocolate drops

1 small cup of milk

1 egg

3oz melted butter

1 tsp Baking Powder


3oz soft butter

80z Icing sugar

Few drops of Vanilla Extract

few drops of pink, blue or yellow food colouring

Lots of sprinkles, extra smarties

Put all ingredients except sweeties and chocolate drops in mixer, combine until just mixed and then fold in sweets. Drop mixture into 12 cupcake/muffin cases and bake for 20 mins at 180C.

The topping just beat all ingredients together using an electric hand mix and then swirl onto each cupcake.

Enjoy decorating with lots of sweeties XX.
