Recipe - Bubblegum Cupcakes

Yesterday I tried a new little experiment – Bubblegum Cupcakes with Bubblegum Frosting.

I used my trusty vanilla cupcake recipe but instead of putting vanilla extract in the batter I used Bubblegum Essence. For the frosting I did my normal buttercream mix and added bubblegum essence again, plus some bright pink colour to make it look more bubblegummy. They turned out surprisingly well and very tasty.

Cupcake Recipe


·         125g margarine
·         125g caster sugar
·         ½ tsp bubblegum essence
·         2 large eggs
·         125g self-raising flour

Preheat the oven to 170oC. Cream the margarine, sugar and bubblegum essence until light and fluffy. Beat the eggs together in a small bowl with a fork. Gradually add the egg to the mixture, beating it well in between each addition. Sift the flour and fold into the mixture. Fill cupcake cases 2/3 full. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes. Remove cupcakes from oven and leave to cool before frosting.

Buttercream Frosting Recipe

·         125g butter (softened to room temp)
·         1 ½ cups of icing sugar
·         A few drops of bubblegum essence
·         Pink food colouring
Beat butter with electric mixer until light and fluffy and as white as possible. Add icing sugar and a bubblegum essence and mix until all combined.
