Adventures in Food… Golf Course Cupcakes

Otherwise known as ‘I finally made something I found on Pinterest!’.

I decided to make my Dad a cupcake golf course for his family lunch for his 65th birthday and I was really pleased with how they came out.

I used a basic sponge recipe:

  • 6oz self raising flour
  • 6oz stork baking margarine
  • 60z caster sugar
  • teaspoon baking powder

I then used another basic butter cream recipe for the icing – a block of butter and a box of icing sugar, with a dash of milk and a teaspoon of vanilla. Whizz it up for 15 minutes – yes one five (fifteen) to make it super creamy.

I then had a selection of coloured fondant and sugars to decorate. Also food colouring and butterscotch pieces.

I forgot to take photos once I started decorating!
