Preparation Time: 15-20 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 24

Ingredients

To make vanilla cupcakes:
200g of butter
1 3/4 cups caster sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
4 eggs
3 cups of self raising flour
1 cup milk

Once cooked, allow the cupcakes to set for about 1 minute then carefully lift each out of the baking tray and allow to cool on a wire rack.

To make butter icing. Place the butter in a mixing bowl and chop it into smaller chunks to help soften it before beating it.
