Hello,  I'm Emma

and I am the food and flavour lover that created this Blog. I'm so pleased you're here!

 

Have a nosey around for some recipes that I find delicious (even if I do say so myself) and some meal inspiration. Or feel free to look at photos of food and drool. I do that a lot, probably too much.

 

I like to think that this is a balanced mixture of health and indulgence. That's how life should be, right?

Cute colourful pastel cupcakes to make any day a little bit brighter. With a jammy centre, they are classic flavours with a modern twist.


MAKES 12

SUPER EASY





I N G R E D I E N T S

110g Caster Sugar

110g Butter

2 Large Eggs

1tsp Vanilla

110g Self Raising Flour

20g Sprinkles


200g Butter

400g Icing Sugar

1tbs Milk

Food Colouring







M E T H O D

- start by preheating the oven to 180c.

- next, in a bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until creamy.

- add the eggs one at a time and mix together

- now add the vanilla and then the flour a tablespoon at a time until combined into a cake batter. Lastly, fold through the sprinkles.

- scoop the batter evenly into the twelve cupcake cases and bake for 14 minutes.

- once cooled, remove the centre of the cupcake and add a teaspoon of jam. Replace the cake you removed on top of the jam. Repeat with all of the cakes. (See image below for jammy centre)

- whilst the cakes cool, make the icing by beating the butter, milk and sugar together. Divide the icing into four bowls and add a different food colour to each bowl, mix and add more until you get the colour you desire. It's better to start with less as you can always add more.

- using cling film, lay out a 30cm long piece onto the worktop. Then add the icing in lines (see image). Roll the cling film over the icing to create a cylinder. Now you can add the cling film to your piping bag with your required nozzle and start piping.
