    How can you make one single cupcake, on it's own?
    As Becca-Sarah said, but you might struggle with recipes asking for 1 egg, so maybe hunt and see if there is an eggless cupcake recipe.

    Yeah i was just wondering if there was a recipe specifically for one, it can be vegan if it's easier, one where you measure ingredients by tablespoons/teaspoons etc rather than roughly slicing recipes.

    Not sure what flavours you're looking for. Vanilla Cupcakes and Chocolate Cupcakes. There are so many recipes on google, so just search

    Made my first cupcakes! Never baked anything from scratch before or piped icing so I'm quite pleased with the results. They're chocolate with melted dark chocolate in the centre and yellow buttercream icing with chocolate chips on:

    I have some edible glitter (on the first cake, a lemon drizzle) and some gel colours but I haven't really had a chance to use them!

    Hey! I know it's been a while since you posted this, but this blog entry came up on my feed yesterday and when I saw your post I thought this might be what you're after? Except it makes two instead of one, but it is in tablespoons/teaspoons

    Two cupcakes!

    Hope they work out for you!

    The bakery across the road from me has just started selling cupcakes, but I haven't had a chance to give them a try. My friend said there's a nice one up in St. Andrews, which I've yet to visit, but hopefully I will this summer

    What is the attraction in cupcakes? It's not like they even taste particularly special. They're just plain cakes with way too much icing.

    Because they're so small, you can have a whole one to yourself - No sliced up cakes that go dry and have their icing destroyed with knives.

    But mostly it's just the excitement of decorating them, there is not a big area to cover so you can go crazy with flowers, butterflies, buttercream icing in lots of pretty colours - They're just so lovely to look at

    (that's my opinion anyway)

    I guess the reu#sult was worth it, though
    I always struggle with buttercream :sadnod: SOmetimes it curdles and sometimes it becomes too sugary :/
    I tend to beat my butter with icing sugar and a bit of youghurt, but that icing, whilst being light and fluffy, won't keep for long
