Having recently watched The Great British Bake Off, it has made me more motivated to bake. So I took the opportunity to, when visiting a friend. We decided to make vanilla cupcakes, the easiest baking recipe, as you can't mess it up too much (at least I tell that to myself). I'm not a baking expert, so these don't look uber fancy, but it was fun making them and the recipe was easy to follow so I thought I would share :)

We doubled the quantities of the ingredients to make 24.


Cake batter:

220g margarine
220g caster sugar
220g self raising flour
4 eggs (medium)
4 tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla extract

After measuring all these ingredients out we realised we had way too much icing left over, so it would probably be best to make some as you go.
280g butter
560g icing sugar
3-4 tsp milk
Food colouring
+ decorations of your choice

Baking them in the oven (preheat to 180° C fan) should take 10-15 minutes. Happy baking!
