Martha made some plain cupcakes during this week’s show and here is the simple all in one recipe. The theme of her sugarpaste decoration was Halloween this week and I hope you will enjoy seeing her work as much as I did.
You will need:
115 g margarine
115 g sugar
1 tsp vanilla
100 g flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
0.25 tsp salt
2 tbsp milk
Butter cream frosting
200 g butter
400 g icing sugar
For the cupcakes, simply place all your ingredients in a mixing bowl and use an electric mixer to combine for one minute without over mixing.
Prepare a cupcake tray with paper cases and divide the mixture between the cupcake cases. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes and allow to cool completely before decorating
Prior to decorating them with Sugarpaste, Martha uses a frosting mix.
Combine the butter and icing sugar in an electric mixer and beat until the mixture is very soft and creamy.
Use to spread the cupcakes prior to decorating them with sugarpaste.
We used sugarpaste by Lamb Brand
