It’s time to get your best frock out, decorate your street with Union Jacks and get ready for a royal street party. This Saturday Harry and Meghan are getting married, but it’s a celebration for the whole country with many people organising street parties or family get-togethers. Even my work are have a Royal Wedding Cake sale with all proceeds going to charity. I’ve made these super easy Royal Wedding Cupcakes especially for the occasion!
To make these Royal Wedding Cupcakes you will need:
50g Softened Butter
50g Golden Caster Sugar
50g Self Raising Flour
1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Medium Egg
9 medium cupcakes or 12 smaller ones. (I used red/pink, white and blue)
Large and small Sprinkles in red, blue and white. (Mixed will do, but it will take a little longer.)
For the Butter Cream I used : Dr. Oekter Easy Swirl Cupcake Icing. Although you can use a recipe and make your own.
1. Preheat your oven to 180C and pop your cupcake cases in your tray ready.
2. Mix your 50g Softened Butter and 50g Golden Caster Sugar together until fluffy.
3. Add in the egg, then your tsp Vanilla Extract and 50g Self Raising Flour until your ingredients are ready to pour into the cases.
4. Pour your mixture into the cases. I made 9 medium cakes but you can choose to make 12 small cupcakes. Pop your tray into the oven until golden brown (around 15 minutes.)
5. Whilst your cupcakes are baking, you’ve got a job to do. Unless you were incredibly lucky and found separate sprinkles you’ve now got to separate your hundreds and thousands. It takes a while but it’s worth it when you see your cupcakes at the end!
6. Take your cupcakes out of the oven and leave to cool.
7. Use your Easy Swirl Cupcake Icing (or another icing recipe) to create a topping on your cupcake. If you don’t use this often, please practice on one of your less-pretty cupcakes. I managed to spray this across my kitchen the first time I picked it up!
8. Sprinkle your sprinkles across the top of your icing. I kept mine to the colour of the cases but feel free to experiment and maybe mix a few!
9. Take a photo of your cupcakes and tag me on Instagram!
10. Enjoy your scrumptious cupcakes or take them to your street party!
If you want a little Union Jack to pop in your cake it’s really simple.
Print off 2 little Union Jacks and cut them into heart shapes. Stick one onto white card and cut around the heart again. Pop a cocktail stick onto the back of the white card and sandwich it with your other Union Jack.
I really hope you enjoyed my Royal Wedding cupcakes recipe! I love using this Easy Swirl Cupcake Icing. I used it before in my Halloween Oreo and Peanut Butter Cup-cakes recipe and it’s the icing we used for our Wedding cupcakes too.
What are you doing to celebrate the Royal Wedding?
