Great British Cupcakes: Quick And Easy Cupcakes:

Step One. Firstly, preheat the oven to 200ºC/gas mark 6 and line a muffin tin with 12 cake cases. Put all the ingredients except for the milk in a food processor and blitz until smooth.

Pulse while adding milk down the funnel, to make a soft, dropping consistency. Alternatively, put all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and use an electric hand mixer.

Or using a bowl and wooden spoon, cream the butter and sugar, beat in the eggs one at a time with a little of the flour.

Add the vanilla extract and fold in the rest of the flour, adding the milk to make a soft, dropping consistency. Spoon into the cases equally.

Step Two. Put in the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes until the cupcakes are cooked and golden on top, check to see if the cupcakes are ready by inserting a cocktail stick into one of the cupcakes.

If it comes out dry then the cupcakes are done. As soon as possible, take the cupcakes in their cases, out of the tin and let cool on a wire rack.

How To Make Step Three:

Step Three. Using a piping bag with a large star nozzle, 2/3 fill with the Cake Angels Vanilla buttercream/frosting, securing the top of the bag with a freezer clip.

Start piping from the outer edge of the cupcake. Slowly work your way round overlapping the layers as you reach the centre of your cupcake.

Remember to apply even pressure to your piping bag, this ensures an even swirl all the way around. Stop squeezing as you pull away from the centre of the swirl to create a nice pointed top a bit like an ice cream.

Rinse and use the second and third colours to decorate in the same way. Take the Cake Angels Great British Sprinkles and a raspberry and decorate.
