Hello beautiful people, how are you? Today I wanted to start a baking series called, 'No Ordinary Cupcakes', in this series I will be showing you how to make cupcakes, that are really easy but look very professional. However, before that I need to tell you about the basic equipment:
First you will need a baking tray, a mixer, a spatula, a cooling tray, an oven (would be quite handy), mixing bowls, wooden spoons, teaspoons, measuring scales and of course cupcake cases!
Then before you can get creative with decorating you need to know how to bake a plain cupcake, which is what I am going to show you now:
You will need...
4oz of caster sugar
4oz of butter
4oz of self-raising flour
1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla extract (better than vanilla essence)
2. Then beat together the caster sugar and butter until extremely pale (this is the most important part because this makes the cupcakes light and fluffy)
There you have it, the basic cupcake, I'd love if you could leave me some suggestions on what I should decorate cupcakes with next time?
