I Had a lot of fun baking my own engagement party cupcakes – you can too!
Here is an easy recipe for you to make your own engagement themed cupcakes!
2 cups cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
half a cup of castor sugar
pinch of salt
half a cup oil
half a cup milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
For the icing
2 cups icing sugar
pink and blue food colouring
1-2 tsp depending on the shade of coulour you want
(powder or liquid)
1 tsp water
DIY Ring decoration
You will need a few toothpicks and printed and cut out pictures of a ring. Use glue to stick a ring picture onto each toothpick. Let dry for a few minutes.
In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, oil, milk and vanilla together. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together. When finished, sift the dry ingredients again, into the the bowl with the egg mixture. Fold/mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until all the flour is mixed into the egg mixture – be careful not to over-mix!
Get a muffin tin and put in the muffin casings. Then use a big spoon and a butter knife to spoon spoons-fulls of mixture into the casings to make them three-quarters full.
Bake for 15-20 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius.
Put on a cooling rack to cool.
In a mixing bowl, beat the butter for the icing until creamy. Sift the icing sugar into the butter and mix with a hand blender until combined.
Divide the creamy butter-icing mixture into 2 bowls. Add the pink food colouring to the one and the blue colouring to the other bowl. Mix until you have the perfect colour – or add even more colouring if you’re not satifsied with the colour.
Use a knife to spread one colour of creamy icing on each cupcake.
Take a toothpick with a ring that you prepared earlier and stick it into the cupcake.
Enjoy the party!
