Today is a grey day, the first cold wintery day. I'm sure you have those days in which you just wish to spend your afternoon and evening rolling from the sofa to the carpet and a cat with its puppies...possibly with your oven switched on...
This is what we proudly baked a while ago...

Ingredients for 12 cupcakes

125 g of flour 
125g of caster sugar
125g of soft unsalted butter
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of milk
12 muffin papers

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and line the tin with the muffin cases.
Cream the butter and sugar, beat in the eggs with a little of the flour.
Add the vanilla extract and add the rest of the flour, pour the milk in order to get a fluid texture.
Spoon the cream in, filling each case equally.
Put in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cup cakes are cooked and golden on top. As soon as bearable, take the cup cakes in their cases out of the tin and let cool.
Decorate with the toppings you love. We made a lovely and light icing, mixing a little water with icing sugar (125 g should be enough) and adding different food colours to it. 
Easy and sooo pretty!
And while cupcakes were cooking...they were painting...
