When it comes to making the buttercream, I prefer to still use the ‘traditional’ method of making it using an electric mixer or hand mixer, the main reason being I can easily see the colour of the buttercream when adding the food dye. However you can easily put this together in your Thermomix if you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 125 g of unsalted butter - softened
  • 160 g of caster sugar
  • 225 g of self raising flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs
  • For the icing/decorations
  • 125 g of unsalted butter - softened
  • 300 g of icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • Food colouring of your choice
  • Piping bag with star nozzle tip
  • 12 Malteaster mini bunnies

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper cases.
  2. Place the flour, softened butter, sugar, vanilla extract, milk and eggs into your Thermomix bowl. Mix for 15 seconds on speed 5 before scraping the sides and mixing for a further 15 seconds on speed 5 or until the mixture is pale and smooth.
  3. Place the mixture into your prepared cupcake tray and place in the oven to bake for 20 minutes or until the cakes begin to turn golden on top and are cooked through when tested with a skewer.
  4. Once cooked, carefully remove the trays from the oven and allow the cakes to cool for 5 minutes in the tin before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Sift the icing sugar into a small bowl and set aside until needed.
  6. In an electric mixer, beat the butter until it’s pale and creamy.
  7. With the mixer on a low speed, gradually add the icing sugar and vanilla essence and beat well until combined.
  8. Add a few drops of food colouring until you achieve your desired colour and beat until well combined.
  9. Transfer your buttercream into a piping bag and pipe the top of a cooled cupcake.
  10. Place a mini MaltEaster Bunny into the centre of the cupcake and carefully place a few M&M's speckled easter eggs around it.
  11. Repeat until all of your cupcakes are decorated.
