Ingredients

Cupcakes:

  • 150g butter
  • 1½ cups CSR Caster Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2½ cups White Wings self-raising flour
  • 1¼ cups milk

Decoration:

  • 2 cups CSR Soft Icing Mixture
  • 100g butter, softened
  • ⅓ cup cocoa sifted
  • 2 tbsp milk (approx.)
  • Mini Easter eggs, to decorate

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C. Line muffins trays with patty pan cases.
  2. Beat butter in an electric mixer until smooth, add CSR Caster Sugar and cream together. Add eggs and mix well. Add the vanilla, flour and milk. Beat until smooth.
  3. Pour in mixture into patty cases until they are about two thirds full. Bake for 20 mins or until golden. While cupcakes are cooling on a wire rack, prepare icing.
  4. For the icing, cream butter until pale and fluffy. Gradually add CSR Soft Icing Mixture and cocoa until fully combined. Pour in milk and beat for an additional 4 mins. Icing should spread easily; if too thick, add a little more milk.
  5. To decorate, spread chocolate icing thickly on to cooled cupcakes. Finish by placing mini Easter eggs in the centres.
