Kids love baking and we find cupcakes are such an easy treat to make with kids of any age. This is one of our fav cupcake recipes, its so easy to follow and one that really lets you get creative with the funky icing feature.

These cakes look and taste yummy and are super easy to make you will need


Ingredients for cupcakes

  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 175g Unsalted butter
  • 175g Self-Raising Flour
  • 175g Caster Sugar
  • ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • Unicorn Sprinkletti Mix (Or any Sprinkles you want)


Ingredients for Icing

  • 600g Sifted Icing Sugar
  • 300g unsalted butter
  • 4 / 5 drops of Cherry Flavouring
  • Pink Colouring
  • Sky Blue Colouring
  • Purple Colouring



  1. Put the unsalted butter, caster sugar, eggs, flour, baking powder and vanilla extract into a mixing bowl and mix together using an electric hand-held whisk until you have a light and smooth creamy mixture.
  2. Place your cupcake cases onto a baking tray and then evenly scoop the cake mixture into the cupcake cases. This mixture should make at least 12 cupcakes.
  3. Bake the cupcakes in a preheated oven at 180 °C / Gas Mark 4 for 20 to 25 minutes. Make sure they have risen and are firm to touch then place on a wire rack to cool
  4. To make the icing to go on top of the cupcakes beat the sifted icing sugar and unsalted butter together. Then add in the flavouring mix in and then add your colouring until you get to the colour you want. We made 3 colours, so you need to repeat this for each colour
  5. Once the cupcakes are cool enough cut out a whole in the top of the cake and pour in sprinkles, then place cake onto of the sprinkles ready for the icinginside shot
  6. We have made three different colour icing and placed them into a bag each then placed those three bags into one large one before piping swirls onto the top of the cupcakes, so it comes out looking multi coloured.
