I think we all know I love a good cupcake and Saemi’s birthday was just the excuse I needed to whip up another batch. I decided that my cupcakes needed to look a bit better so I ordered some piping nozzles from Gmarket. They finally arrived and I came up with a recipe to make these lovelies. You can’t beat pink with sprinkles.



220g butter or margarine

220g of white sugar

3 eggs

220g of flour

2 teaspoons of baking powder

6 strawberries

4 drops of red food coloring


250g of icing sugar

5 tablespoons of butter

4 drops of vanilla extract

3 drops of red food coloring


Cream together the butter and sugar. Whisk in the eggs then add the pureed strawberries. Add the food coloring then mix in the flour and baking powder. Pour you mixture into the cupcake cases. Bake them at around 200 degrees Celsius for about 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting.

To make the buttercream, cream together the butter and powder sugar. This may be difficult so add in the vanilla and food coloring to help the process. If it is still too dry then add a teaspoon or two of milk. Once you have buttercream consistency. Ice the cakes and top with sprinkles. Voila cute cupcakes for all to enjoy.
