How pretty (and delicious) is this cupcake, created by kykNET’s Kokkedoortjie judge, mentor and mommy of three, Mari-Louis Guy. We’re definitely making it this Sunday.

Vanilla Cup Cakes

Ingredients

125 g butter, softened

125 g castor sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla essence

1 cup (140g) self-raising flour

2 Tbsp (30 ml) milk

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 C. Line a muffin pan with 12 paper cups.

In the bowl of an electric mixer beat together the butter and sugar until pale in colour. Add the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla. Mix well. Spoon the batter equally into the paper cups and bake for 16-18 minutes. Leave to cool in the pan. Once cool, pipe your icing onto the cupcakes.

 

BUTTERCREAM ICING

125 g butter, softened

1 ½ cups (210 g) icing sugar, sifted

2 Tbsp (30ml) milk

1 tsp (5ml) vanilla essence

Food colouring of choice

In the bowl of an electric mixer, with a paddle attachment, beat the butter until pale in colour and creamy. Add the icing sugar and half of the milk. Mix well, then add the vanilla essence and food colouring (to the desired shade). If the mixture is too firm, add the rest of the milk and beat until it reaches your desired consistency.

Win with Pediasure

Children naturally have high energy requirements to support their growth and development, in addition to what they need for activity, sport and play time. If they do not get enough energy from food, they may become tired, irritable, and have poor concentration, losing their interest in being active. PediaSure® Complete is a nutrient-rich, lactose-free drink that provides balanced nutrition for children from age three to ten, experiencing growth challenges. Long-term clinical studies using two glasses of Pediasure® Complete daily has been associated with improved appetite and physical activity and a reduction in the number of sick days.
