Those of you who read my post about my visit to the Millenium Hotel to watch Breakfast At Tiffany’s, will know how much I loved the tiffany blue cupcakes we were given. Nicky from Cupcakey who made the ones that we ate that day has kindly provided the recipe for all of us who want to make our own. So let’s get baking!
To make 12 cupcakes you will need:
8oz caster sugar
8oz self raising flour
- Cream stork and sugar until creamy and pale in colour.
- Add flour, vanilla and eggs and beat until well combined.
- Fill cupcake cases to 3/4 full and place in pre-heated oven – 160 degrees.
- Bake for 10-12 mins until golden brown.
There are two types of icing you can go for:
500g Icing Sugar
Vanilla 1/2 tsp
Beat together for 5-7 mins (electric mixer or strong arm!). Use food colour paste, mix blue and green for Tiffany colour.
Fondant – available at supermarkets or cake decorating suppliers, colour to suit and roll to around 1cm thick.
