Happy Mardi Gras! To celebrate 2013 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras - I've made some rainbow cupcakes. I used my white chocolate rainbow cake recipe and made them in miniature form. These were really good - even if I say so myself! It was moist and vibrant and really tasty! As my friend Sheree said – “Not just a pretty face”, in reference to the cupcakes.
Below a few notes that differ from my original recipe.
Recipe makes 15 cupcakes.
Using dessert/teaspoon to spoon each colour on top of the previous colour into each cup.
Use a tooth pick to swirl (if you want) the mixture before putting in the oven. Be sure not to over do it, otherwise it will just mix together.
Baked for about 20 minutes, check after 10 and 15minutes.
Frosting recipe = Beat together 125g cream cheese (at room temperature), 60g butter, 1/2 tspn vanilla essence, 2 tspn lime juice, 3/4 cup icing sugar.
Pipe frosting with a large star nozzle.
Garnish with 100s and 1000s sprinkles.
