Nothing says I love you like a homemade cupcake! Our cupcakes are easy to make and really yummy.


  • 255g softened butter
  • 340g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 510g flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 3 Tbsp Whisky Syrup
  • 3 Tbsp Milk
  • 510g butter
  • 660g powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  3. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs and vanilla and mix.
