Fathers Day Cupcakes




cake-decorations-baking140g/5oz soft butter

280g/10oz icing sugar

1 tbsp milk

Few drops food colouring


Preparation method


Beat the butter in a large bowl. Add half of the icing sugar and beat until smooth.

Add the remaining icing sugar and one tablespoon of the milk and beat the mixture until creamy.

Stir in the food colouring.


Perfect piping


You will need a large star piping nozzle and a large piping bag.

Once you’ve made your buttercream fill the piping bag and twist the end to seal. Hold the bag above the centre of the cupcake and applying a steady pressure, pipe in a swirl.

Continue the swirl working outwards toward the edge of the cupcake.

When you’ve covered the entire cupcake, release the pressure and flick the nozzle away to break from the swirl. This should create a smooth finish.
