2 cups of self-raising flour, sifted
3/4 cup of caster sugar
3/4 cup of milk
125g of butter, melted, cooled
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups of icing sugar
4 drops of blue food colouring
2 drops of green food colouring
1 – 1 1/2 tablespoons of water
To make cake, preheat oven to 200°C. Line a muffin pan with patty pans.
Combine flour and caster sugar in a bowl. Make a well in the center.
Add milk, butter, eggs and vanilla to flour mixture. Using a wooden spoon, stir gently to combine.
Spoon mixture into patty pans. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into center comes out clean. Stand in pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
To make icing, sift icing sugar into a bowl. Mix food colouring together and add water. Stir until smooth. Spoon icing over cupcakes. Decorate with fresh lavender.
