Babyshower bake: Cute baby cupcakes

Crying baby!
So this was my next event to bake for! A baby shower! Was my first time attending a baby shower too! Had lots of fun :) And hope a smooth delivery for both mums-to-be!!! =D
After googling "baby shower bakes", I found a lot of recipes for decorated cupcakes. Many of them used fondant but I decided to just stick to buttercream icing. I made 2 flavours of cupcakes - Raspberry and White chocolate and Mocha and Chocolate chip.

Many baby faces
Raspberry and White Chocolate cupcakes
Recipe adapted from Creative Gourmet
125g softened butter or margarine
1 cup caster sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1/4 cup milk
75g white chocolate bits

1/2 cup plain flour
75g Creative Gourmet frozen Raspberries

Buttercream Icing
50g butter
100g icing sugar
Up to 2 tbsp milk
  1. Preheat oven at 180ºC (fan forced 170ºC). Fill a 12 holed muffin pan with cupcake patties.
  2. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla together with electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs, self-raising flour and milk and mix to make a soft, smooth batter.
  4. Fold in white chocolate chips and frozen raspberries. Spoon into muffin pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until cooked. Stand for 15 minutes before turning out onto a cooling tray to cool completely before icing.
  5. For icing, cream butter and icing sugar in a small bowl, adding enough milk for a smooth consistency.
Mocha Chocolate Chip cupcakes

Same recipe as above but sift 2 tbsp instant coffee powder and 4 tbsp cocoa powder into cake mix. Fold in 75g dark chocolate chips.

I had so much fun decorating these cupcakes! The icing pen was so useful ^_^ I tried to make each face different, giving them their own personality =p haha! I hope you all enjoyed them =) =)
