Pumpcake, cupkin?

Pumpcake, cupkin?

I bet you wouldn’t mind eating the seeds out of this pumpkin 😉 Seriosly, this one looks a lot complicated, but in fact, it just needs time to prepare. First the cupcakes, then the buttercream, the holing out of the cupcake and so on… but, really. Not. Difficult.

Ingredients:

  • 250g flour
  • 190g sugar
  • baking powder
  • vanilla paste
  • 50g butter
  • 150ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • salt
  • cardamom
  • 125g butter
  • 300g icing sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • smarties
  • fondant

Method:

  1. prepare the batter as usual, creaming the butter with the sugar, adding the eggs, and then salt, flour, baking powder, vanilla paste, food coloring, cardamom and milk;
  2. cook in the preheated oven at 180°C for 20 minutes and leave out to cool completely;
  3. while cooling you can get on preparing the frosting and I follow MyCupcakeAddiction’s recipe: cream the butter alone for 5 minutes and then start adding the icing sugar, mixing each time for 2 minutes, at 3/4 of the icing sugar having gone in the mixture add the vanilla paste, the food coloring and the milk;
  4. make a hole at the center of the cupcake and slice the top so that you can close the cupcake once you’ve put in the smarties, add the smarties and close;
  5. frost the cupcake and decorate with a little bit of fondant to make it look like a pumpkin.
