Firstly I just want to say how devastated I am to see yet another natural disaster, my heart goes out to all those affected.
A couple of days ago Sweet Pea's Kitchen posted some very colourful cupcakes for Mardi Gras. Although I am not interested in Mardi Gras celebrations I did think these cupcakes were so cute.
I really love cooking with my daughter Evie and thought these would be perfect to make as some afternoon entertainment.
Firstly we made a basic vanilla cupcake mix and then divided into three before adding in the food colouring. Evie chose pink, purple and yellow.
I used ziplock bags to pipe the batter in careful layers in some Tinkerbell cupcake cases. Then we baked.
They came out so beautifully, a really special treat. Actually Evie only had a nibble as she doesn't really like to eat cake - lucky her (but she does like the batter!).
