Directions

1Preheat a fan forced oven to 180°C and prepare cupcake tray with 12 wrappers.

2IMPORTANT: Spray the inside of wrappers with oil to avoid any sticking (or use a silicone tray).

3 Empty contents of this pack into a large bowl.

4In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, eggs and melted butter.

5Pour this wet mix into the dry cupcake mix and gently fold until just combined.

6Using a tablespoon, portion mix evenly into the 12 cupcake wrappers. Ensure tops are smooth and even.

7 Place on the top shelf of the preheated oven, and bake for 15-20 minutes. Rotate tray at halfway to ensure even baking. Remove cupcakes from oven and place on a cooling rack.

icing method

1IMPORTANT – Cupcakes MUST be cooled completely before icing otherwise your icing will melt.

2Place butter and cream cheese in microwave for 30 seconds to soften.
