Tiny Teddy Cupcakes

These tiny teddy cupcakes are easy to make but can easily be adapted for the more adventurous. The recipe below is for a basic cupcake but you could easily substitute a chocolate cupcake, a red velvet cupcake etc.

Ingredients

  • 200g unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
  • 1/2 cup milk

Icing

  • 1 1/2 cups pure icing sugar
  • food colouring, optional
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons water
  • box of chocolate tiny teddies

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced oven.
  2. Line muffin or mini-muffin pans with paper cases.
  3. Beat butter, vanilla and sugar in a small bowl until light and fluffy ( this is easier if done with an electric mixer)
  4.  Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition (mixture will separate at this stage).
  5.  Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Stir in half the flour. Stir in half the milk. Repeat with remaining flour and milk until combined.
  6. For 1/3 cup-capacity muffin pans use 2 level tablespoons of mixture. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes.
    Alternatively, for 1 tablespoon-capacity mini muffin pans use 1 tablespoon mixture. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
  7.  Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  8. Make icing:
    Sift icing sugar into a bowl. Add food colouring of your choice and water. Stir until smooth and well combined. Spoon icing over cupcakes.
  9. Decorate with teddy teddies.Put your tiny teddy cupcakes in an airtight container until the party.
