The Mighty Thor Cupcakes

Ingredients

110g softened butter
110g golden caster sugar
2 large eggs
½ Tsp. vanilla extract
110g self-raising flour

To Decorate

150g softened butter
300g icing sugar
1 Tsp. vanilla extract
3 Tbsp. milk
Blue food colouring
12 large marshmallows
12 pretzel sticks
Edible silver spray

 

Method

Heat oven to 180˚C/160˚C fan/gas 4 and fill a 12 cupcake tray with cases.

Using an electric whisk beat 110g softened butter and 110g golden caster sugar together until pale and fluffy then whisk in 2 large eggs, one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition.

Add ½ Tsp. vanilla extract, 110g self-raising flour and a pinch of salt, whisk until just combined then spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases.

Bake for 15 mins until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the middle of each cake comes out clean. Leave to cool completely on a wire rack.

To make the buttercream, whisk 150g softened butter until super soft then add 300g icing sugar, 1 Tsp. vanilla extract and a pinch of salt.

Whisk together until smooth (start off slowly to avoid an icing sugar cloud) then beat in 3 Tbsp. milk.

Stir in the food colouring then spoon into a piping bag and pipe onto the cooled cupcakes.

Push a pretzel stick into the side of a marshmallow to great a hammer and spray lightly with the edible spray.

Please one hammer on top of each cupcake and serve.
