I have actually decided that I am going to do a regular themed post based on the recipes I like. I remember making cupcakes when I was little with my Mum, which used to be quite fun. My friend at work loves making cupcakes and she really is a talented baker. She has actually inspired my first "grown up" attempt at making cupcakes, which I made for my sister's birthday. I made two batches one were vanilla and the second were chocolate. I used Nutella icing on both, which was delicious (just beats eating nutella straight out of the jar). I have to say they turned out better than I expected. However, I do believe I have a long way to go with my cake decorating skills.
If you were interested I used my friend's adapted version of Nigella's Cupcake Recipe.
Here is the recipe for the Nutella Icing
About 40g Butter
2/3 - 1/2 cup of Nutella
1 cup of Pure Icing Sugar
1 tbl milk
Combine butter and nutella. Mix in the milk and icing sugar until the icing sugar is combined.
