Vanilla Cupcakes

I get super excited when thinking or just hearing the word Vanilla Cupcakes! Here you can be creative as you like! My ultimate favourite. Vanilla Cupcakes is one of the most important items on a high tea menu or a kiddies birthday party. And you can be so creative with it.This is a wonderful recipe. The Vanilla Cup Cake is the a basic and easy recipe. You can play with various colours of icing on it, and go absolutely wild! Use colours, cupcake holders of beautiful colours, go extreme, the choice is yours! While working at Augusta Kleinbosch Guest Farm making these was one of my favourites. Whenever I could suggest it or make it for any occasion, I was extra happy. The room's cleaning ladies used to come around to the kitchen to see what new creations on the decoration side I came up with. And they used to tell me to open my own cupcake shop! So much love to you two ladies Rachel and Esmie who believed in me, but opening your own shop is really not that easy. You still make me smile when I bake Vanilla Cupcakes. The frosting is a lovely base as well, you can play with colours such as the colouring liquid or the colouring powder you get from various supermarkets and baking shops. For the decoration you can let loose with eatable sweets, eatable glitter, 100 and 1000's, chocolate vermicelli and all the rest! Google and the internet are full of creative ideas to add to your final project. Or visit the local Chinese shop in town, their shops are also full of fun things to add to the cupcakes.I hope you find so much joy you will continue every week to bake some for work colleagues, friends, families or your own baking shop. Have a look on my Facebook Page: The Smoking Chimney for ideas for decorating. I have also baked some cupcakes for different birthday pary themes such as Jungle and Sea themes.
