Bake Sale Cupcakes

Bake Sale Cupcakes

Cupcakes are great to make for a school cake sale or any celebration and you can adjust the colour of the buttercream icing and cake decorations to suit the occasion. They are one of my favourites and your children will love getting involved in making these!

150g caster sugar

115g Greek yoghurt

To decorate:

125g butter, softened
