Winnie The Pooh cupcakes

Everyone who knows my son understand that there is no other theme possible for his Birthday than Winnie The Pooh. He fallen with love with this little yellow creature when he was really very small and it seems to be a true love. This is a real best friend, he is taking care of him like it would be a family member, talks to him, taking him everywhere, etc. Having said that I really had no problem with his 3rd Birthday theme!

I've decided to share with you the recipe for cupcakes that I've baked for his classmates. It was without a doubt the best surprise for Maks as the picture of Winnie looked so real on the cupcake! He couldn't believe he can eat it!

Recipe is for about 20 cupcakes:
  • 220g soft butter
  • 160g white sugar
  • 220g all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 4 teaspoons of vanilla essence
All ingredients should be at room temperature.
Shift flour and baking powder in one bowl and set aside.
Beat butter with sugar in your electric mixer until light and fluffy. Then add eggs one by one and keep mixing well. Then add dry ingredients set aside, vanilla essence and mix with spatula until all blended.
Bake about 20min in 180C or until inserted toothpick is dry.

That was an easy part. Personally I had absolutely no idea how to decorate those cakes with Winnie The Pooh. I really don't have a fancy piping equipment nor artistic skills to draw his head with the icing. Then I remembered that you can print eatable images that you insert On the cake and it looks just perfect! I contacted Pam from YummyliciousSweets in Bahrain and bought Winnie The Pooh images for 5BD only (20 pieces). All you need to do with them is to cut and stick them on a thin layer of white icing. I also made an icing crown around the picture to hide all the imperfections and for kids to do some licking!
You can either get them done locally if you have that option or order through Amazon here. They are tested and delicious and really add an extra buzz to your standard muffin/cupcake!

Icing recipe:
  • 230g of butter at room temperature,
  • 3 cups of icing sugar,
  • 1 spoon of milk,
  • and some food coloring if you want
Mix butter in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add sugar in 2 or 3 parts and keep mixing. Mixture should be creamy but not too dense. If thick add some milk.
Add some food coloring if needed and put in a piping bag to make desired design.

All simple, fairly easy and cheap but looks fabulous! Do you agree?
