This tried and tested recipe has been passed down from Nicoletta’s Mom. You may find it familiar, since we have used it on our free recipe cards.



  • 250g Butter (room temp.)
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 2 cups Cake flour
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ tsp. Baking powder

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a muffin pan with cupcake holders. With an electric beater, beat together the sugar and the butter until the mixture is light in colour and fluffy in texture. Add the eggs one at a time to the mixture, beating the mixture till the eggs are incorporated after each addition. Add the milk and vanilla to the mixture, beat well. Add the sifted cake flour and the baking powder, mix well.

Spoon the batter into cupcake holders, and bake in a warm oven for approx. 20 minutes until the cakes are golden brown. The cupcakes can be iced with vanilla buttercream; we decorated ours with Star Cake Confetti, Chocolate Hearts and Red Ready to Roll Fondant Icing.
