5th Baking - Vanilla Cupcake

As I said, my December started with baking project. Heeeee..

Geram tgk cupcakes yang comel-comel... so I tried baking vanilla cupcake on last Saturday. Got the recipe from here.

Preparing cupcakes

Preheat oven to 170ºc

125g butter
100g sugar - reduce the amount to lessen sweetness
1 1/2 tsp baking powder (shifted)
110g flour (shifted)
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
2 tsp full cream milk
(for 12pcs)

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy

Add in egg and vanilla essence, continue beating. 

Fold in full cream milk, shifted flour and baking powder. 

Fill up paper cups to 1/2 of batter .
Bake for 25mins at 170ºc

Preparing butter cream frosting

95g butter
260g icing sugar - pls reduce the amount as it was too sweet!!
1 1/2 tsp full cream milk

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy and add in full cream milk
Drop colour as you wish
The white colour is the original batter
As for choc, I added cocoa powder.

Vanilla-Choc Christmas-Theme Cuppies by Chef Just!!

I find the recipe is quite err actually VERY sweet though especially for the frosting. Remember to reduce the sugar amount! I just can't take it tp takkan mau buang pula kan.. so, I just proceed with the deco la.

Overall, I find baking cupcake is quite easy but of coz you need extra creativity for the topping designs/deco. *wink*

I think I'm going to try out making fondant as deco? Hmmm...
