Pink Cupcakes


This is one of my birthday recipes! Since pink is one of my favourite colours, I baked all pink cupcakes with pink frosting and a strawberry on top!!

For this recipe you will need:

250g butter
250g caster sugar
250g self raising flour
4 medium eggs
4 table spoons of milk
A dash of food colouring

Mix all ingredients together and add the food colouring last. Use as much as you want! I actually thought I had put way too much colour in, but I really liked how they turned out in the end!
Bake for approximately 20 minutes on 180 degrees.
Make sure a skewer comes out clean when you check them.
Leave to cool on a wire rack.

For the butter cream icing:

5oz butter
10oz icing sugar
2 teaspoons of milk
Food colouring of your choice

And there you have it! Perfectly pink cupcakes!
Have you tried experimenting with food colouring?

Happy baking!
