Strawberry Milkshake Cupcakes


I made these for a work friends birthday a while ago, I wanted to make him something different and fun and these went down a treat!

 


I just used my basic sponge recipe and mixed in a couple of teaspoons of Nesquik Strawberry Milkshake powder.

 I added several tablespoonfuls of the powder to my basic buttercream recipe (while tasting A LOT to test of course...) until I was happy with the flavour.

For the 'straws' I cut in half some strawberry 'pencils' these are the sweets most supermarkets have their own version of and usually have in a pick and mix any three bags for £1 offer. I then sprinkled on some pink glitter sugar and voil√†! 

I'd love to know any interesting/ unusual cupcake flavours you've made!

Happy Baking,
L
