Basic Lemon Cupcake Recipe (makes approximately 12 cupcakes)
Step one: Preheat your oven to Gas Mark 3/325F/170C
Step two: Cream the butter with sugar and once well mixed add in lemon extract, flour and then the eggs.
Step three: Set out your cupcake cases in your pan and fill each case 2/3 full.
Step four: Bake from around 12-18 minutes or until a golden brown on top and leave to cool on a counter. TIP: To stop the tops of cakes and cupcakes from hardening when cooling place slices of bread on top of them as they cool.
Pink Lemonade Buttercream
Step one: Cut your butter into small cubes and cream your butter until soft. Gradually add icing sugar until a good consistency.
