'No Ordinary Cupcakes' The Rainbow Cupcake...

Hey lovelies so today I baked some different cakes and wanted to show you how to make them...they are rainbow cupcakes. Can life get any better? I don't think so :) enjoy!


Ingredients (makes 12):
 
125g unsalted butter
125g self raising flour
125g caster sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tbsp. milk
4 bottles food colouring (red, green, blue and yellow)
12 cupcakes cases

 
Method...
 
First preheat the oven to 200 degrees
Mix together the sugar and butter until pale and fluffy.
Beat the eggs in one at a time adding a little flour in each time until the ingredients are mixed.
Add the vanilla essence and mix. Then add the milk 1 tablespoon at a time mixing after each addition.
 
 
Divide the mixture into 6 bowls:
In Bowl 1 - Add half a cap of red colouring
In Bowl 2 - Add half a cap of red and half a cap of yellow
In Bowl 3 - Add half a cap of yellow
In Bowl 4 - Add half a cap of green
In Bowl 5 - Add half a cap of blue
In Bowl 6 - Add half a cap of blue and half a cap of red
Mix colouring into each mixture after adding.
 
 
Divide the purple mixture between the 12 cases. Repeat with the others, so you would divide the blue mixture in to the 12 cupcake cases and then the green and then the yellow and so on.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes.
 
 
This is what they should look like...
 
 
And if you wanted to add butter icing see this blog post, and I just crushed some chocolate coasted sweets and sprinkled them on top of the cakes.
 
Let me know if you like these cupcake posts?
 
P.s Sorry it took so long for me to post again :)

Hello Strangers...

Well this has been a very long time indeed, so recently I have been out enjoying the summer and haven't found time to sit down and write on my blog. However, I have found some time now and wanted to have a ickle catch up with you all. I had my acrylics done at the start of the holidays and they have lasted so well, at the moment I them black (hard core right.) but in this photo they are a lovely colour by accessorize (of all places) and it's called 'first dance'.
 
 
Oh and I did go on holiday but it wasn't to sunny :/ I have my fingers crossed that next year I can go somewhere that is guaranteed hotness. Where have you all been on holiday this year? Did you go somewhere cold or hot? Also I can't forget I made some rainbow cupcakes the other day and am currently writing up the post for my cupcake series :) I hope you all will enjoy that one. Basically, I only wanted to say sorry for not posting anything for while. However I'm back now, for good, at least until I loose inspiration again. Lets hope that doesn't happen for a bit though, I'd love to know what you have been up too over the past weeks?
 
Lots of love
