if the frosting it is a little soft, pop into the fridge for 10 minutes to firm up.

colours and flavours can be added to the frosting after the final step.

in the absence of a piping bag, use a zip lock bag and trim off one of the corners - great if you need to do a bunch of different colours

regular flour can be substituted for the gluten free flour in this recipe (same weight)

both the cake recipe and the frosting recipe can be halved - reduce cooking time for frosting by 20%

    This mixture tasted good but the quantities seemed too much for the TM. I had to add some milk to get it moving and mix it by hand with the spatula without the lid on. It might have been me but I'm pretty sure I got the measurements right. Removed half and mixed with added milk then mixed all together in a bowl. They are rising nicely in the oven so expect they will taste good!

  • This is the best GF cupcake

    This is the best GF cupcake recipe I have ever made - fantastic. Only managed to make 29 rather than 60 though!

    I also couldn't get the icing to work.  

    Will have to have a go at making the vanilla version as mentioned above.

  • We made the choc butter cream

    Submitted by Vicki Hill on 25. December 2012 - 16:57.

    We made the choc butter cream frosting without the choc and the flour/milk mixture looked like glue.

    When we mixed the sugar, butter and vanilla it stuck to the sides of the TM Bowl so we had to scrape out and use a hand mixer.  As we didn't want to use the 'glue' mixture we had to add extra icing sugar to compensate for the amount of butter.

    Some things are better done the traditional way.
