Cupcake Madness.

Preheat oven at 180 degrees Celsius.

For the basis of the cake mix for the cupcakes.


100 g of butter

100 g of superfine sugar

2 lightly beaten eggs

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

100 g of flour

2 tablespoons of milk.



. Melt butter and sugar in a pan. Add vanilla extract.

. Beat both eggs and incorporate into mixture.

. Spoon the flour into mixture little by little until you achieve a compact consistency. Add milk to make the dough more fluid.

. Add into paper supports and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden.

For the Icing.


140 g of softened butter

280 g of icing sugar

1-2 tablespoons of milk

food coloring.



. First beat the butter in a large bowl until it is soft. Add half of the icing sugar

. Mix again and then add the rest of the icing sugar. Add the amount of milk needed to make the icing smooth.

. Add food coloring to make it joyful!

For Rainbow cupcakes.



Same as above but you need loads of coloring to achieve this effect.


. Start by making the dough and the icing as illustrated above.

. The key here is to separate the dough into 6 different bowls with the following coloring: green, blue, yellow, red, orange, and purple. Mix the dough and the coloring with different spoons.

. When adding to the paper supports, add 2 spoons of each mixture. You’ll end up with rainbow cupcakes ready to be baked!

. For the icing, keep it simple and white as the cupcake in itself is already quite colorful.

Cappuccino cupcakes.



. For the dough, same as above but add instant coffee powder and chocolate chips.

. For the icing: add vanilla extract and coffee powder to the ingredients stated above.


. Follow the steps to the first cupcake preparation by just adding in the new ingredients instead of the coloring. Add a piece of white chocolate for decoration.
