Last Thursday, I managed to make about 30 cupcakes for my daughter’s 4th birthday - Choc Chip Cupcakes with Royal Icing. I used the same premix as before but added semi sweet choc chips and made royal icing with orange flavouring.
I am still an amateur so I had to be contented with the outcome. I am proud to say I tried my level best to make some homemade stuff for my lil angel.
There will be more cupcakes making in times to come. Next time, perhaps, I’ll frost em with Chocolate Ganache instead .. mmm .. SINFUL .. ;-)
Anyway, here are some pictures to share:-

And here is the Royal Icing recipe :-
2 egg whites
4 cups of confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
pink and blue colouring
Beat egg whites and gradually add confectioners sugar till stiff.
Add orange flavouring.
Divide the mixture into two bowls.
Tint one with pink and the other with blue coloring.
Pipe onto the cupcakes and decorate with extra choc chips and sugar pearls.
Try em ..
