Pretty Pastel Birthday Cupcakes

These pretty Pastel Cupcakes for my Niece's 1st Birthday went down a storm with everyone!

It's my Niece's 1st birthday party tomorrow 🎉 So I spent today baking these pretty pastel cupcakes for all the adults and children there 😁 I think they look extra pretty by putting the plain cupcake cases into the printed card cases from Poundland!

Ingredients you'll need for the cupcakes 125g melted butter 125g caster sugar 125g gluten free self raising flour (I used doves farm) 2 eggs 2-3 tbsp milk Drops of vanilla extract .

Simple Method

1 Preheat oven to 190°C 2 Beat all ingredients together in a bowl with an electric whisk (or a manual whisk if you're feeling strong 💪🏼)

3 Spoon into cupcake cases and bake for 18-20 minutes! Found this method on Ingredients you'll need for the icing 175g butter 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 2-3 tbsp milk 350g icing sugar

Method 1 Beat together the butter, vanilla and 2 tbsp of the milk with an electric whisk. 2 Once whipped up to a fluffy texture add half of the icing sugar and whisk again. 3 Once mixed in, add the second half and another tbsp of milk if required.

4 Add a couple of drops of food colouring of your choice. 5 Fill your piping bag and ice in whatever design you want and add sprinkles if desired ✨ Found this recipe on

This is a super simple recipe and the effect is lovely! I especially think the blue and pink go beautifully together.
