Buttercream icing:


  1. Set the oven 160C, place muffin cases in a twelve-hole baking tray. This amount makes between 12 and 18 cup cakes.
  2. Weigh all the ingredients and put them into one bowl and beat them for two minutes with a hand-mixer or in a stand mixer.
  3. To make sure every cup-cake is perfect place the baking tray on your scales and set them to zero. Into each bun case spoon exactly 40 grams of mixture, zeroing your scales between each one.
  4. Bake in the oven for 18 minutes before checking.
  5. Place on a cooling rack and while they’re doing that you can make the buttercream.


  1. Weigh the ingredients and put them in a bowl and mix until creamy.
  2. Decorate according to taste – spread it with a knife or pipe it on before adding any other decorations.
