The one with the cupcakes


I went for coffee to a friend I haven't seen in a while, so it was cupcake time! I admit I had to make them from a box as I was pressed for time, but they weren't too shabby!

First, I lined the muffin tray.


Next step, make the cake. Mix together the powdery stuff, an egg and 2 tablespoons of water.


Whisk away!



Then, divide the mix equally to each cupcake liner and bake. I only made 9 out of 12 so I filled the empty cups with water in order to bake evenly.



While they were in the oven, I started making the frosting. I was in a green mood.



The cupcakes were ready after 12 minutes. I (messily) spread the icing and scattered sugar flowers and sprinkles on top, my favourite part!



Ta-da!! I realise the process is too simple to document, but I really enjoyed baking and photographing simultaneously. And look, I saved one for you!

Oh that looks good, I wish I could have a bite!

I never cook or bake anything, but for some reason I feel like making some cupcakes, tomorrow I will go shop for some mixing and everything else to be honest, I hope they come out as good as yours.

:D
