Vanilla Bean Cupcakes


Step 1
Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter, sugar and Taylor & Colledge vanilla bean paste.

Step 2
Add the eggs one at a time and beat lightly. Add sifted flour and milk in two batches, stirring between each addition until just combined.

Step 3
Spoon into a lined 12 hole cupcake tin and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350F fan forced.

Step 4
Place butter in the bowl of a stand mixing and beat on medium-high speed for 6-8 minutes until pale and fluffy. With the mixer off, sift in icing sugar and vanilla, and fold to combine. Return to mixer and beat until combined, approximately 2-3 minutes.

Step 5
Transfer icing to a piping bag fitted with a 1M (Rose) piping tip. Pipe rosettes over cupcakes.
