Gold Medal Rhubarb and Custard Cupcakes

'Tongue N' Cheek' by Dizzee Rascal

Here I am again! This time my exuberant behaviour is about the cupcake below, and Dizzee contributed some extra energy! 
Rhubarb and custard is quintessentially British and I've always wanted to put my own twist on the pair, shame I couldn't find mini custard creams they would have been extra cute. I think next time a sprinkling of pink dust and home made custard creams will be in order. 

Covers 12 muffin size cupcakes


250g unsalted butter
400g icing sugar
4tsps Instant custard powder
1 tbsp warm water


: In a food mixer first soften the butter.
: Add the icing sugar in batches.
:Once soft add custard powder and water.
: Keep the mixer on for a further 2 minutes.
Fill piping bag or use a small palette knife.

I think this has been the shortest post to date! The blog will be a bit quiet for a while because I am off to NEW YORK! WAAAAAAAAAA!

A trip that will induce even more crazy ideas, let me know if you try the custard buttercream. Trust me you will LOVE it.
