pink cupcakes and irish buttercream

11 April 2010

i can't think of a better way to spend bank holiday than shopping, eating subway and baking with my best friend, kirsten :)

For the sponge we used:
4 free-range eggs
225g/8oz sugar
225g/8oz self-raising flour
225g/8oz butter, melted
a load of vanilla flavouring :P
this gave us enough to make 24 buns

yummeh buns baking :)
left: buttercream with 2 cap fulls of irish cream (baileys) right: simple pink icing

all of the pretty decorative goodies we used :):)

and these are the finished buns.. the decorating was quite rushed as both kirsten and i had places to be and people to see but i think they look great conidering :)

they were very tasty too!! my house mates and their mates would agree..........

done any baking recently? tell me about it :)
