  • Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line a muffin tin with large cupcake cases.
  • Whisk the softened butter and caster sugar. Cream together until pale and fluffy. Add the vanilla, and gradually add the eggs whilst mixing. Mix until evenly combined
  • Add the flour, baking powder, salt and milk. Fold ingredients together gently until mixed
  • Spoon in the batter between each case evenly
  • Bake in the oven for 25 minutes until a beautiful golden brown and a skewer comes out clean from the cake.
  • While the Cupcakes are baking, prepare the syrup. Add the ingredients to the pan over a low heat and gently stir until completely combined. Then turn up the heat and boil for one minute. Immediately take the pan off the heat.
  • As soon as the cupcakes come out of the oven, poke holes in them using a skewer and drizzle the syrup into the cupcakes. Use a brush to brush the syrup evenly over the top of each cupcake.
  • Leave the cakes to completely cool.
  • Once cool, prepare the buttercream icing. Add the softened butter, vanilla, and icing sugar to a bowl and beat until pale and fluffy, this may take around 5 minutes. Add the food colouring and stir through the mixture. 
  • Using a spatula or piping bag, frost the cupcakes and decorate!
