Today at the makes club we will be doing some baking and box making! The task is to bake the most scrummy and yummy lemon cupcakes and create cute flamingo boxes to hold the bake goods inside so you can share them with your friends and family or a neighbor!
Let's get baking first!
We will need to gather up the following ingredients:
250g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
Follow the steps below to make the cupcake mixture...
Preheat the oven to 180'C
Separate the egg whites, place yolks in different container.
Mix yolks with butter and sugar until they become white.
Clean the lemon by placing it in boiling water then grate it. Combine the grated lemon with butter and yolk mixture.
Using clean beaters whisk egg whites with a pink of salt until stiff.
Add the whisked egg whites to cake mixture and gently combine.
Add flour and baking powder.
Place cupcake casing in the baking pan.
Scoop the cake mixture into casings till almost full but do not overfill, the mixture will double in size when baked.
Bake for 10-15 minutes, after 10 minutes if the cupcakes are golden on top check with a tooth pick if cooked through. Clean toothpick means the cupcakes are ready if not you can let them bake for further 5 minutes.
You can use a store bought frosting and sprinkles to decorate your cupcakes and make them fabulous!
After your cupcakes are finished you can download the superb cupcake box below and gift it to someone!
Simply print the page on A4 cardstock and cut around, fold on the solid lines and glue on the white tab, the bottom of the box simply folds with self locking mechanism.
Why not throw a flamingo themed party and give the cupcakes as a party favors?!!
