Butterfly sponge cupcakes




I just bought a new silicon muffins pan and had to try it. I decided to make some cupcakes. These cupcakes are sponge cupcakes decorated with glace icing and coloured coconuts. The decorations are made from royal icing and fondant. The recipe I used for these cupcakes comes from Aunty Yochana's blogspot. here's the link http://auntyyochana.blogspot.com/2008/01/chocolate-fudge-cake.html. However, I made some substitutions. Here's the modified recipe :)Ingredients for sponge cake:

(A)
120 gm. Superfine flour
1/4 tsp. Baking powder
1/4 tsp. Bicarbonate of soda
1/4 tsp. salt
85 gm. sugar
4 egg yolks
50 gm. cooking oil (any brand)
40 gm. water

(B)
4 nos. egg white
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
85 gm. castor sugar


(1) Mix all the ingredients (A) together into a smooth batter.
(2) Whisk (B) till until stiff peaks
(3) Fold (A) and (B) together, taking care not to overmix. Pour into cupcake tin and bake at 175C for about 15 mins. or till cooked. Remove cake from oven.
(4) decorate to your heart;s desire :)

They look cute and really fluffy! I have a really hard time with sponges because I find that they're easy to overmix. I'm glad your modified version worked well for you.
