Pink Cupcakes

For my daughter's fourth birthday I made gorgeous pink cupcakes. They looked so cute and were very easy to make and everyone, particularly my daughter, loved them.


To make the cupcakes a little more spectacular I sprinkled them with edible pink glitter which looked really good.

4oz (115g) self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
4oz (115g) butter, softened
4oz (115g) superfine (castor) sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon milk
pink food coloring
Raspberry jelly/jam

Preheat oven to 350F (180C).

Line cupcake trays with cupcake papers.

Sift together the flour and baking powder into the bowl of an electric mixer. Add butter, sugar and lightly beaten eggs and beat with electric mixer until smooth.

Add the milk and a few drops of food coloring and continue beating until the color has been evenly combined.

Spoon mixture into cupcake trays.

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and until a skewer inserted into the middle of a cupcake comes out clean.

Leave in trays for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.

When completely cool, spread a layer of raspberry jelly over each cupcake and then pipe the frosting on top.

Topping:
1 egg white
6oz (175g) superfine (castor) sugar
2 tablespoons hot water
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Put the egg white, sugar, water and cream of tartar into a heat proof bowl and set over a saucepan of gently simmering water.

Whisk (by hand or with electric mixer) for approx 5 minutes or until the mixture is thick and soft peaks form.



Hi Miranda

Thanks so much for submitting your recipe for pink cupcakes.

I know how much little girls love pink and that mixed with the glittery sprinkles would be every little girl's dream come true.

Next time we would love to see a photo!

Thanks again for sharing.

Regards
