Hello and Welcome to Day Three. The girls and I had lots of chats about what treat we should make for this Hooray project- and they came up with many ideas! But I made them focus on just one thing and they came back to cupcakes - Sorry I know we do make alot of cupcakes in our house - I think its because they are so yummy - but also because they are easy to transport and give away too!
So today's post focuses on a cute idea for decorating your cupcakes. Fortunately for my colleagues its a someone's birthday at work tomorrow and we are having morning tea -so they will be munching on these ones and we will be making more closer to the big day to share with neighbours and friends.
The same basic recipe that we use for all cupcakes
- 1 cup sr flour
- 90 grm butter
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup sugar
- dash of vanilla
This makes a dozen ish ( or double it for two dozen if you need a class of them )
for decorating you will need
- icing sugar
- red food colouring
- patterned paper
- heart punch
Ice your cupcakes - Using a thin paint brush - paint hearts using red food colouring
I just pop a few drops into a bowl - and I drew a heart to see how easy it was to do- very easy!
Punch two hearts per cupcake topper - stick together with glue onto the toothpick and pop into your cupcake
Yum these will be so nice at morning tea tomorrow with a hot cup of tea:)
Don't forget to pop over to Mels blog - today she has a cute way of wrapping up those gorgeous hearts they made!
