Baby Shower Cupcakes

– BAKING –

I wasn’t actually going to put this post up as I didn’t get any pictures of me actually making the cupcakes, I only have the final result. YES MY SISTER IS GOING TO BE A MUM. SHE HAD AN AMAZING BABY SHOWER AND I MADE HER SOME CUPCAKES. If you have this sort of event coming up and you want to make cupcakes, then I have the perfect recipe for you. I made white chocolate and rose cupcakes as the theme of the baby shower was pink and white and I thought these went nicely together. The sponge has white chocolate chips inside and the icing is rose flavoured.

– LETS GET STARTED –

Ingredients that you will need for the cupcake mix ( makes 15, double the ingredients to make 30 )

125g Butter

125g Caster Sugar

125g Self Raising Flour

100g White chocolate chips

1tsp Baking Powder

2 eggs, beaten

1tsp Vanilla Essence

Ingredients that you will need for the icing 

1tsp Rose Extract

360g icing sugar

80g insulted butter (room temperature)

155g cream cheese

Any decorations that you want to use. 

Equipment that you will need

A mixing bowl

A spatula

Scales

A sieve

A spoon

Cupcake tins

Piping bags and nozzles.

Cupcake cases

Method for cupcakes-

Step one- Preheat the oven to 175oc. Add the butter and sugar together and mix until it becomes a pale yellow/white colour.

Step two- Sift in the flour and baking powder. Then add the eggs and Vanilla essence. Fold together and mix until all ingredients are well combined.

Step three- Add the white chocolate chips and mix. Then place the mixture into the cupcake cases ( try to add the same amount of mixture between all of the cupcake cases )

Step four- Place the tray in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown. When you poke a skewer inside it should come out clean, try a couple of times as this could be the white chocolate chips melted inside.

Step five- Once baked place on a wire rack and leave to cool until completely cooled down.

Method for icing- 

Step one- Mix together the icing sugar, the butter and the rose essence until well mixed together.

Step two- Add all of the cream cheese in one go and beat together until it is well combined. Continue to beat together until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Step three- Pipe the icing onto the cupcakes only when the cupcakes are completely cooled down. If they are still hot the icing will melt.

Decorations that I used

Pink baby feet

Ducks and Prams on Skewers

Pink food dust

Pink and white balls

White chocolate icing

The cupcake cases were really cute and ideal for my sisters baby shower.
