Fairy cupcakes

This is the 2nd cupcakes that I baked just now, the request was from my son Desmond. The 1st cupcake that i baked from the cupcakes recipe book (given by Jane) was a Marble Chocolate cupcakes. But this fairy cupcake is not my cup of tea but kids like it as they like the icing frosting.

Fairy cupcakes




We decorated with few type cake decoration balls.

2. Add in egg one at a time, beating well after each addition.

4. Place paper cases into baking pan and divide the batter among the paper lines.
5. Bake at pre-heated oven at 180c for 15-20mins. Cool on a wire rack.
6. For the frosting, sift icing sugar into a bowl and stir in just enough water to mix to a smooth paste that is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon.
7. Spread the frosting over the cupcakes and decorate as desired.

Sonia,
Try using lemon juice instead of water, it'll give the frosting a nice tang, and won't taste so sweet.
I bet the kids will super love this.
