  4. To make the icing, beat the butter until smooth, pale and fluffy. Gradually add in the icing mix. Slowly add enough hot water to create a creamy mixture beating between each addition until fluffy.
  5. To ice the cupcakes, pipe the icing onto cupcakes when cooled.
  6. To decorate, add some chocolate sprinkles and freeze-dried raspberries for extra wow factor!

Add a little magic!

Once iced, add chocolate shavings or toasted walnuts, hazelnuts or desiccated coconut.

Switch it up:

You can bake this as a cake at 180°C (160°C fan forced) for 40-45 minutes and ice as per instructions.

To make Vegan Cupcakes instead:

  • Alter Step 2 by placing cake mix, ¼ cup unsweetened apple puree, ¾ cup water and 4 tablespoons melted non-dairy spread into mixing bowl.
  • For the Icing, use 150g non-dairy spread instead.

To bake a Vegan Cake instead, substitute:

  • Eggs: Instead soak 4 Tbsp of ground flaxseed in ½ cup of warm water for 10 minutes and allow it to thicken.
  • Butter/margarine: instead use a non-dairy spread
  • Milk: instead use a non-dairy milk.
