Kids in the Kitchen – Really Pink Cupcakes

Welcome to this week’s kids in the kitchen where we invite you to share what you have been cooking with help from your kids. This week Boo decided she wanted to make Really Pink Cupcakes.

Last week we were joined by the kids from The Beesley Buzz and they made a Blue Cake. Maybe we could go for a rainbow of cakes?
If you’ve been cooking and having your kids help along the way, even it’s just to help make a mess, then please do come and link up. We love to share at Kids in the Kitchen. We also have a Pinterest Board where I share all posts.

Really Pink Cupcakes:

Boo wanted to make cupcakes, but she wanted them really pink so we bought some pink cupcake cases, colouring and princess pink sprinkles in our weekly shop.
125g soft unsalted butter (or Stork)
125g caster sugar
2 eggs
125g self-raising flour
1 tbs strawberry Crusha
pink food colouring.
for the icing:
85g soft unsalted butter (or Stork)
170g sifted icing sugar
pink food colouring
1 tsp strawberry Crusha
pink sprinkles
I was unable to buy strawberry flavouring so I used the Crusha as a substitute and was pleased to find that it did add flavour and a little more pinkness.
First we measured and creamed the butter and caster sugar together.
We added the eggs one at a time beating between each
We mixed in the Crusha
Then we folded in the sifted flour
We put a large teaspoon into each of 12 cupcake cases
We baked at 190C/gas mark 5 for about 12 minutes, until springy to touch
After allowing to cool we mixed up all the ingredients for the icing together and used and icing gun to decorate the cupcakes.
Finally, we used a selection of pink sprinkles to finish off the decoration.

So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked, then share it with us here.

I’d also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
