 Ingredients List

  • For the Fairy Cupcakes:
  • 140 g Self Raising flour (I use White Wings gluten free)
  • sugar 140 g
  • butter, 140 g (room temperature)
  • almond essence½ tspn
  • eggs 2
  • milk 1-2 tbsp
  • For the Buttercream Frosting:
  • butter 90g (room temperature)
  • icing sugar 1 cup
  • almond essence ¼ tspn
  • pink food coloring 1-2 drops
  • milk 1-2 tbsp


Pre-heat oven 200°C.
For the Fairy Cupcakes:
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy and light.
Add eggs, one at a time, mix well.
Add flour, almond essence and milk and continue mixing until well combined.
Fill the cupcake batter into cupcake wrappers up till 2/3 full.
Bake for 16-20 minutes or until the cupcakes passed the toothpick test.
For the Buttercream Frosting:
Mix butter until light and fluffy.
Add icing sugar and continue mixing until combined.
Pour in the almond essence and milk last and mix well.
Get your piping tips ready and pipe the buttercream frosting on top of the cupcakes.
Make sure your cupcakes are totally cooled before piping the buttercream frosting, about ½ hour.
The recipe for the buttercream frosting is pretty thick. If you like your frosting to be a bit lighter, add a bit more milk to reach the desired density.
You can adjust the pink shade of your buttercream by adding more or less pink colorings.
