Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Line 12 hollows of a muffin pan with paper cupcake liners.

1 Beat the oil or butter and sugar together until creamy.

Add the eggs one by one and whisk well.

Add the vanilla essence and whisk again.

2 In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt together.

3 Take turns adding the dry ingredients and the milk to the egg mixture.

Beat lightly until just mixed.

4 Spoon the batter into the cupcake linings and bake for 20-25 minutes until done.

Transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack and set aside to cool completely.

5 BUTTER ICING

Use an electric beater to cream the butter and icing sugar in a large mixing bowl until well combined.

Add the vanilla essence and lemon juice and beat until light and creamy – if it’s too thick, add a little boiling water.

Spoon the icing into a piping bag.

6 DECORATION

Slice each marshmallow into four pieces.

Dip the sticky side of the marshmallows in the pink sprinkles.

7 Pipe icing onto the cupcakes.

Press two pieces of marshmallow onto each cupcake so it looks like bunny ears.
