It is a great activity with little ones as they get to know all about measuring (numeracy) ingredients(knowledge and understanding the world) talking (communication,literacy and langauge) and small motor skills(physical Development)

I know everyone has their own way of making cupcakes however here is mine:

makes 24 cakes

100grams self-raising flour

100grams caster sugar

100grams unsalted butter

2 eggs

1tsp Vanilla Essenes


Pre-heat the oven for 180c

Add all the ingredients together and mix

Using a teaspoon add mixture to the cake cases trying not to go over the half way mark

Cook for 15/20 minutes till golden brown and a cocktail stick is inserted and comes out clean




Wait until the cakes have cooled until to decorate

3/4 cup of icing sugar

1/2 tsp of food colouring

Add the cold water a drop at a time not much is used to achieve a stiff paste.

Let the kids loose with the icing and toppers

Most of all have fun!
