End of Term Cupcakes

It was the last day of nursery today before the summer holidays. I will share the thank you card and gifts that Jess made in another post but she was also adamant that she wanted to make some cupcakes for all of the grown-ups. She's had a fabulous first term at Abacus and has grown in confidence so much. It's been a joy to see her develop through attending the preschool sessions and worth every single tear at drop-off. Anyway, I digress, back to Jessica and her cupcakes...

Today she did everything (well, very nearly). She measured the flour and sugar on her scales so that they exactly balanced with the eggs she was using...



She creamed the butter and sugar together...


She cracked the eggs (which she doesn't usually like doing)...


She folded in the flour and spooned the mixture into the cases...


Then she licked... :-)


To decorate them we tried out some colour-your-own cupcake decorations by House of Cake. They are printed designs on sugar paste and come with edible food pens. The idea is brilliant but the black printed outline comes off if you're not incredibly quick and careful so they didn't look the best in the end. Jessica did enjoy doing them though and they were something a bit different.


She made pink buttercream (of course)...


She liberally spread the buttercream on the cupcakes and topped with the decorations before licking the rest of the bowl and ensuring that she had a sugar-high for nursery this afternoon - sorry about that... ;-)


Here she is looking as though butter wouldn't melt with her dozen of beautiful cupcakes...
