If you saw my Previous Baking Mad post you will know that I had 2 cake mixtures to make. I finished the Chocolate Swirl Cake. But was yet to show you how I made the Cupcakes!
As I explained before I know it is a packet mixture and it’s not hard to bake. I still wanted to make it into a post though. I actually still really enjoy baking packet mixtures. I started off by getting all the things I needed out and prepared. Basically eggs, water, oil, spoons a bowl and a muffin tray. Also at this point I pre heated the oven to 150 degrees (fan oven).
Pop into the oven for roughly 20 minutes. Again as these were baking I was getting on with the ever so tedious task of washing the dishes!
Whilst the cupcakes were in the oven I prepared the buttercream. Which is just icing sugar and well.. butter. But I use margarine.
I mixed this up until I had a thick but creamy consistency. I always tend to add more icing sugar than it states to get it thicker. Especially for cupcakes as you need it to hold it’s shape whilst on the cake.
And then my cakes were baked!
Once these cooled I spooned my buttercream into a piping bag. I love this piping bag it was £2 from Asda and comes with a range of different nozzles and you can re use it over and over as it’s washable.
Hope you enjoyed reading this post. Have you got any baking posts? If so leave the links below so I can read them 🙂
