Charity Cupcakes in 3 flavours

So its that time of year again where I make over 200 cupcakes to sell at a Charity car Show, This year I made cupcakes in 3 flavours, not large cupcakes just your regular size, from a basic mix.


1 of 4 boxes full of cakes

Basic Mix

  • 2 eggs (room temperature)
  • 4ozs Self raising flour
  • 4ozs Butter (room temperature)
  • 4ozs caster Sugar
  • Vanilla paste (to taste)

Basic Butter-cream

  • 8ozs Icing sugar
  • 4ozs of soft butter ( I use unsalted Lurpak every-time)

Vanilla cake with Chocolate Butter-cream

  • Use basic mix
  • Add extra Vanilla
  • Add 6ozs of melted dark chocolate to your butter-cream mix ensuring now lumps
  • Decorate using piping bag and nozzle, i made simple flowers by holding nozzle directly above the cake and pressing out, repeat 2 times with smaller amounts each time

Lemon cake with lemon butter-cream

  • Use basic Mix
  • 2ozs of lemon curd
  • freshly squeezed lemon juice and rind of 1 lemon
  • for the butter-cream I use the basic mix adding again the lemon curd, rind and lemon juice (add according to taste)
  • Decorate , I made roses with nozzle on these

Caramel cakes with a caramel butter-cream and drizzle

  • Use basic mix
  • 1/2 tin of condensed caramel  into sponge mix
  • remove a spoonful of remaining tin of caramel (set aside for later)
  • place the rest of the tin in the butter-cream and mix well
  • I did a basic swirl with the butter-cream this time.
  • With the spoonful you have set aside, stir it well until it starts to liquify then drizzle over the cakes

Cook all the cakes for 12-15 mins gas mark 3.5, center of the oven.

My Apologies for lack of photographs here, I was so busy making them I forgot to get some, I remembered to grab the only one on the iPad just as we were leaving the house

  1. These look great – we are currently fundraising for a trip to Indonesia for 13 students in my classes to do conservation work. We need to raise around £27,000 so a weekly cupcake stall at the school is starting up. We are going to give these a go x
