Crafting with cupcakes

Here are a few images of some of the cupcakes I have made and decorated.

I know I should probably stick to decorating all of one batch in the same style, but I have too much fun and end up giving each cupcake its own, individual character!

Basic Cupcake Recipe


1 ½ cups flour
¾ cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ cup milk
½ cup oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence

Sift dry ingredients together.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and beat well until smooth and creamy.
Place paper cups into muffin tin and fill each cup 3/4 full.
Bake for 15 minutes at 180° C.

Icing: Cream together 125g margarine and 125g icing sugar.
Add two tablespoons of milk and mix well.
Add cocoa or food colouring.

My favourite icing is a cream cheese icing made from;

1 tub (230g) cream cheese (low fat is fine)
1/2 cup softened butter
2 cups icing sugar2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla essence
