Makes 12


125g butter
2/3 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 orange, rind finely grated
2 cups self-raising flour
3/4 cup milk
453g tub vanilla frosting (we used Betty Crocker brand)
icing flowers (we used Green's brand) and coloured sprinkles, to decorate


1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line one 12-hole, 1/3-cup capacity patty pan with paper cases.

2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla in a small bowl until pale and creamy.

3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add orange rind and beat until combined.

4. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Fold in flour alternately with milk until mixture is just smooth. Spoon mixture into patty cases until three-quarters full. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until golden and a skewer inserted into the centre of one comes out clean. Remove from oven. Turn onto a wire rack to cool.

5. Spread cupcakes with frosting. Place 1 icing flower in the centre of each cupcake. Top with sprinkles.

Cupcakes can be made a day in advance. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
