Directions:

Preheat your oven to 170C/Gas Mark 3

Add the softened butter and caster sugar to a bowl and mix until pale and fluffy

Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined

Gradually add the self raising flour and mix until you have a smooth batter

Spoon the mixture equally into 12 cupcake cases and pop in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean

While these are baking, make your buttercream frosting by mixing the butter, icing sugar, vanilla extract and milk in a bowl, and add some pink food colouring to make pretty pink frosting

Fill a piping bag with the pink frosting and use a nozzle to frost each cupcake

Take your Cake Lace Kit and a pallet knife, and spread the lace mix onto the mat and make sure all shapes are filled in. Scrape off any excess and return to the pot

Pop the Cake Lace mat in the oven for 12-14 minutes

Sprinkle your work surface with icing sugar and knead your ready to roll icing before thinly rolling out

Cut out circles in various sizes for your cake toppers

Gently peel the Cake Lace shapes from the mat and use a dab of water to adhere to the icing

Place the circles on top of the frosting and enjoy your lace cupcakes!
