Baking Teacup Cakes: Let’s have Tea!

teacup cakes

You may have spotted these little teacup cake cases in my Wilko Haul a little while back (complete with saucers). Well, I finally got round to making some little vanilla cupcakes to fill them up for a tasty treat. Hope you like them!

These cupcakes are super simple to make and require:  100g of softened butter, 100g of caster sugar, 2 free range eggs, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 100g of self raising flour and some of milk.

  • Cream the room temperature butter and the sieved sugar together.
  • Add the two beaten eggs and the vanilla extract.
  • Sieve in the flour a third at a time, folding it into the mixture.
  • Mix until of pouring consistency, add milk if too stiff.
  • Pour into cake cases.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes.
  • Test by pressing the cake gently, if it’s cooked it’ll spring back to shape.

And to make the buttercream icing you will need: 120g of softened butter, 260g of icing sugar, some milk, some green food colouring, some vanilla extract and some decorative edible flowers.

  • Beat butter until soft.
  • Sieve in icing sugar and mix.
  • Add vanilla extract, food colouring and milk as required.
  • Use a piping bag/palette knife to apply to the cupcake.
  • Finish with a pretty flower and serve on a saucer.
