One of the things that I know as a parent is how messy cooking can be and making buttercream and letting the kids decorate cupcakes with it can get extremely messy and also very tasty. When I first started cooking with the kids I used to use a piping bag or even a ziploc bag for my buttercream it was messy and it worked. BUT… then I got given a Cake and Cookie Decorating Syringe and the mess and waste of buttercream is so much less than when we used to use the bags! I’ve been using it now for a few years and both I and the kids find it really easy to use and decorate our cookies, cakes and treat with it.

Ingredients

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Line a 12 hole muffin tin with your chosen Cupcake Liners.
  • Add the sugar and margarine/butter to your stand mixer.
  • Mix until creamy in texture.
  • Crack the egg in a jug and whisk.
  • Pour the egg into the mixer as it continues to work.
  • Add in your vanilla extract.
  • Finally, add the flour and baking powder and let the mixer combine the two.
  • Divide the mix between the 12 cupcake cases.
  • Place in the oven for 15 - 18 minutes.
  • Remove and leave to cool whilst you make the buttercream frosting.

Green Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

  • In the stand mixer beat the butter until it is smooth.
  • Now add the milk and vanilla extract with 1/2 of the icing sugar.
  • Combine until it is smooth.
  • Now whilst it is still mixing gradually add the remaining icing sugar
  • Once you have a smooth consistency add the food colouring paste - just a tip of a knife will produce a vibrant colour like we have and no taste.
  • Using a star nozzle on your piping syringe or bag add an effect to look like grass to the cupcakes.
  • Complete with a little chick and some mini eggs for that spring and Easter theme for your cupcakes.
