Easy to make, without the use of an electric mixer and with simple ingredients: these cupcakes are always my life savers when I want to make an easy and yummy edible gift! I make them a lot and usually I do not use exact measurements I just make them by experience. The last time I baked these yummy little things was at Penelope’s 5th birthday party. I wanted them for my candy bar and I garnished them with pink buttercream and yellow sprinkles to much our party theme. So let’s see: quick and easy to make, a little patience to get them baked and then decoration with whatever we like: sugar paste, buttercream, sprinkles. This time I sat down and wrote down the measurements for you: would you like to have my recipe?
