Strawberry ice cream sundae style cupcakes

I baked these Strawberry ice cream style sundae cupcakes the other day, it is summer after all and if you can’t have ice cream have cake that’s my philosophy anyways… I don’t really bake as much as I used to as I don’t have the time but I do miss it. Besides, scoffing  eating the finished product is always the best part, right? Here’s how I made them and the ingredients you’ll need if you want to give them a go yourself.
what you will need
1 egg
140 grams of white sugar
a pinch of salt
20 grams of cocoa powder
100 grams of self raising flour
1 and a 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
40g of unsalted butter (at room temperature)
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
120ml of fresh whole milk
Pre heat the oven to 170 degrees, whilst the oven is warming up. In a large mixing bowl add the flour, the sugar, the salt, the baking powder and the butter. Mix on a high speed until it’s all nicely combined. Then in a small jug, whisk the egg, milk and vanilla extract together, then add it to the bowl with the dry ingredients, and continue mixing on a high speed until the mixture is nice and smooth.

Take a baking tray and fill it with paper cupcake cases, now for the tedious part. Carefully spooning the cupcake mixture into the cases. Once all of the cupcake cases are filled, place them in the oven for around 20 minutes. To make sure they’re done, place a skewer through the middle of the cupcake, if it comes out clean they’re done! If it comes out gooey with cake mix, they need to go back in for a little longer. Leave them to completely cool before decorating them with butter cream.
How to make the butter cream icing
100g of unsalted butter
200g of icing sugar
Strawberry flavouring
piping bags 
glacé cherries
straws for decoration

Sift the icing sugar into a large bowl to remove any lumps, in another bowl whisk the butter until it becomes soft. Add a drop of Strawberry flavouring at a time and taste, to see how strong you want the flavour to be. Slowly add the icing sugar, and stir until it starts to stiffen. I like to place the bowl of icing in the fridge for around 15-20 minutes or so before piping, as it can become warm, which means it won’t hold or stay in place on the cupcakes. When the icing is chilled, spoon it into a piping bag and pipe it onto the cupcakes, add as many sprinkles to decorate as you wish and pop a cherry on top, add a paper striped straw (for decoration only) then they are good to go!

    These looks so beautiful and delicious. I am definitely going to try and make these, as I love baking on a sunday afternoon, however mine probably won't look half as good.

    These look amazing and so delicious, I wouldn't want to eat them as they look so pretty! You'll have to give advice on decorating cupcakes one day, whenever I try to make they look impressive it all goes wrong so I really am in awe (seriously the only time they looked as good as this my mum ran over them ten minutes later!).

    They look absolutely gorgeous, almost too pretty to eat! I'm definitely going to save your recipe for a rainy day and try it myself (although I doubt mine will look anywhere near as perfect as yours!) I love the little lace cupcake cases too!

    These cakes are so beautiful – You have such great taste in cake decorating! I can't eat ice cream which is quite sad considering what great weather we're having, but it made me smile to read that you'd written "if you can't have ice cream, have cake". I think It's a sign that I should bake these myself.

    Just wanted to say how much I love reading your blog, since I have been for over a year now. Gorgeous photography and consistently great content.

    Take care,
