*Easy Peasy Cupcakes*

Published Friday, 04 December, 2009 by Gabriella

Cupcakes so easy a child could do it



  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence (optional)
  • 125g/4oz caster sugar
  • 125g/4oz soft margarine
  • 125g/4oz self-raising flour
  • To decorate (optional)
  • tubes of writing icing
  • marshmallows, white and coloured
  • food colouring, for icing
  • coloured sweets


1. Heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and beat them together until the mixture is smooth and slightly lighter in colour.

2. Line a bun tin or cupcake tin with paper cake cases and half-fill each case with the cake mixture.

3. Cook the cakes for 18-20 minutes. You can tell they are done when they have risen up, are golden in colour, and spring back into shape when lightly pressed.

4. The cupcakes can be decorated using a basic icing, plus marshmallows, writing icing, food colouring and coloured sweets. You can even make a cupcake farm with animals such as sheep, piglets and dogs.
