Summer Party!

So this week I had a little summer garden party full of lots of gorgeous summer foods! 
I also have a few pictures for you of the spread of the table and after you have had a browse I can tell you how to make some of the amazing treats!

One of the things I made was the raspberry cupcakes!
So if you want to know how to make it then I will tell you!
This recipe is from the new Tanya Bakes book by Tanya Burr

What you will need:

For the Cupcakes
50g Butter
180g Caster Sugar
1 Egg
Splash of vanilla extract
160g plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
160ml full-fat milk
raspberry jam

For the Icing:
250g butter
500g Icing sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
pink food colouring
And of course raspberries to decorate

1. Cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Then mix in the egg, vanilla extract, flour and baking powder.

Slowly add the milk a bit at a time so you get the correct consistency it should end up a nice smooth batter.

2. Spoon your mixture into your cupcake cases pop them into the oven for 18-20 at 180°c.

3. Once you have got them out and let them cool, cut a little hole out of the middle and put in a scoop of the raspberry jam to each cupcake.

4. Now its time to make the icing! Cream together the butter and icing sugar until well incorporated, Then add the vanilla extract and few drops of pink food colouring!

5. Final step then you can have your cupcakes!! All you need to do now is pipe the icing on to the cupcakes and a raspberry on top and then sprinkle some edible glitter on to give it a twinkle! 

Let me know if you make them on here or on my social media!

Until Next Time
