LIVE STREAM - How to Make and Decorate Easter Cupcakes

Today I'm going to make some Easter cupcakes. I'll go through how to make my vanilla cupcakes and buttercream icing as well as some quick and easy decorating ideas. This is the recipe I'll be using: Vanilla Cupcakes: 2 1/4 cups flour 1 1/2 cups sugar 3/4 cup vegetable shortening 3/4 cup milk 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon almond extract 3 large eggs – Preheat oven to 350 F/180 C. – Place cupcake cases in pan. – Measure all ingredients into the mixer bowl fitted with the paddle attachment. – Mix at low speed until ingredients are combined. – Scrape down bowl once. – Mix on high speed until smooth and fluffy (about 2 min). – Scoop batter into prepared cupcake pans. – Bake for about 15 - 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cupcakes comes out clean. – Let cool for 10 minutes in pan before turning out onto wire rack to cool completely. White Vanilla Buttercream Icing: 1 cup vegetable shortening 4 cups icing sugar 1 teaspoon clear vanilla flavouring 7-8 teaspoons water – Place vegetable shortening, icing sugar, vanilla and 7 teaspoons of water into the food processor. Mix until icing is spreading consistency and add more water if needed. ___________________________________________________ You can also follow me on Twitter @goosesgoodies ___________________________________________________ Support this channel on Patreon!
