Raspberry Party Cupcakes

Raspberry Party Cupcakes

Here is an easy to make cupcake that will be a stand out at any party.
Hope you like what I have created.

Raspberry Party Cupcakes
Makes 12

You will need;
Cupcake or Muffin Tray for 12 cakes
12 Paper Cupcake Cases
Electric Mixer

Ingredients for Cupcakes
100g / 3.5oz    Unsalted Butter
1/2cup             Castor Sugar / Superfine Sugar
1 tsp                Vanilla Essence
2                      Eggs (I use 700g eggs)
1 cup               Self Raising Flour 
1/3cup             Milk
1 cup               Thawed Frozen Raspberries

Ingredients for Icing
1 cup               Icing Sugar / Powdered Sugar
1 tbsp              Soft Butter
1 or 2tsp          Boiling Water
1/4cup             Thawed Frozen Raspberries

Preheat oven to 
170oC / 340oF in a normal oven or 150oC / 300oF in a fan forced oven

I find it easiest to gather and measure out all my ingredients before I start mixing. 

Place butter and sugar in mixing bowl and mix.

Mix until light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla.
Add eggs one at a time, beat to mix each egg into butter sugar mix.

Next, remove bowl from mixer stand. Fold in half the flour into mix.

Fold through all the milk.

Then fold through the remaining flour

Do not over mix, you just need to fold through until just combind.
Gently fold through Raspberries.

 Line baking tray with paper cases

I like to use an ice cream scoop to fill cases as it is not as messy as using spoons.

Bake for 20mins or until centre of cakes spring back when touched.

While cakes are cooling you can prepare icing.

Mix butter and sugar together adding 1 to 2 teaspoons of boiling water to make icing smooth but not running.

Prepare thawed raspberries by mashing with a fork. You can make this as fine or as rustic as you like. I had mine a bit more rustic.

Ice each cupcake. I did mine with a spatula but a more elegant way would be to pipe it on.
Drizzle on crushed Raspberries

You are done. Now display your beautiful work.
