Spring Cupcakes made easy with Cake Angels
Regular readers will know that I enjoy cake decorating. From pirates, to minions to star wars, my boys like to keep me on my toes with their cake requests. Recently I received some goodies from cake angels that has made cake decorating so easy and I am really pleased with these cupcakes made in minutes.
The cakes themselves are just a standard cupcake recipe : 4oz self raising flour, 4oz caster sugar, 4oz butter and 2 eggs. Mix altogether and cook at 180C/350F/Gas 4 for 10-15 minutes. I made a mixture of normal cupcakes and smaller ones in petit fours cases (these cook much quicker)
For the sheep I used a smaller cake and covered with cake angels vanilla frosting. I then placed white cake angels marshmallows all over and then added the cake angels icing sheep head with an extra blob of frosting.
For the ducks I mixed some blue colouring into the frosting. I then added an icing duck and some white chocolate swirls from the cake angels chocoholics delight decoration pack.
I then used some of the other decorations to make some more spring time cakes. They were quick and easy and taste good too. A great idea for getting the children involved in baking too with results they will be pleased with.
You can head over to the Cake Angels website to see more ideas and some great recipes.
