Recipe for 18 Cupcakes

125g caster sugar
150g soft Anchor butter
50g dessicated coconut
150g self raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
4 medium eggs
1tsp strawberry essence
Half tsp almond essence

Ingredients for Buttercream:
250g soft butter
400g icing sugar
Small drop of strawberry essence
Tiny drop of red food colouring gel


Preheat oven 180°c

I have my own Kenwood old school cake mixer, so just put all the above in and let it do all the work.

< Bake for 20 minutes and then leave to cool completely

: Whisk all ingredients for buttercream, if more gel needed add little at a time.

: Pipe and add a strawberry on top if you want.

Next time:
Mine need something else on the top!
