  • Heat the oven to 350 F. Line a 12-hole cupcake tin with paper cases.

  • Put the sugar and butter in a bowl and mix together until pale, soft and fluffy. Gradually add in the eggs and vanilla until combined, sift in the flour and mix until smooth.

  • Use a spoon to divide the batter between the cases. Bake for 20 minutes until golden and a skewer inserted come out clean.

  • Put the icing sugar in a bowl, and mix in enough milk to loosen until the icing just falls off the spoon. Add coloring, if you like.

  • Let the cakes cool completely and then spoon icing onto each cake, letting some drizzle down the sides, if you like, and decorate with whatever toppings you prefer.

Bon Appetit!
