Little Duck Cupcakes (and Bunny Ears)

I made some vanilla cupcakes today from the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook for the charity day at Oliver's Tiny Talk toddler's class. I frosted them with a lemon flavoured buttercream.

Given it was for toddlers, I went a bit mad and made little ducks and bunny ears too to dress them up a bit.

I got exactly 12 cupcakes out of the mix, exactly as specified in the book. I used muffin liners in my silicone muffin tray because I planned to ice the cakes. I think I would have been seriously short and probably needed twice as much frosting had I not used sugarpaste to make ponds for the ducks. There certainley was nothing like enough frosting to pile it up like the photos in the book.

I only got a tiny bit of Oliver's cake - but the sponge seemed nice. I'll need to make more another day and actually eat one to report on that !


  1. This are the sweetest cupcakes -I am sure that you are going to raise lots of money with these cupcakes.

  2. Thank you.

    I've no idea how much they raised - but they were really great fun (and easy) to create :-)
