Baking With Kids - Heart Shaped Cupcakes


  • 110g/4oz butter or margarine
  • 110g/4oz caster sugar
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 110g/4oz self-raising flour
  • 1-2 tbsp milk

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl. Beat in the eggs and stir in the vanilla extract.
  3. Fold in the flour using a wooden spoon, adding drops of milk until the mixture is of a dropping consistency. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases until they are half full.
  4. Place a marble in the top of each tin hole.
  5. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until golden-brown on top and a blunt knife inserted into one of the cakes comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes.
  6. Decorate with pink icing.
