Strawberry cupcakes

My baby turns two months today and I baked these divine cupcakes to mark the occasion. The recipe for the vanilla cupcakes come from my secondary school home economics textbook so its absolutely fail-proof. I got the strawberry icing recipe online- its a recipe for fresh strawberry buttercream frosting and so delicious paired up to the vanilla cupcake.

Ingredients:
150 g self-raising flour
150 g butter
120 g sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence

1. Cream butter and sugar in mixing machine. Add egg gradually until fully combined. Add vanilla.
2. Fold in the flour with a metal spoon.
3. Put into cupcake holders and bake at 200 degrees, middle shelf for 15 mins.

Icing:
5 fresh strawberries chopped
200 g butter
300g icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1. Blend the frosting in a mixing machine. Spoon on top of cupcakes. You can garnish the tops with fresh strawberries if you have more at hand.
