So its Comic Relief and you have no idea what to do to raise some lovely dosh? Well help is at hand in the form of Uncle Joe and this week hes showing you how to make cupcakes! Nothing could be simpler! And the best thing is by doing this (and selling them on of course) you shall be helping those around the world who are less fortunate! So get cracking and dont forget to order a Comic Relief fundraiser pack whilst your at it and send in all your lovely pennies once your done!!

Ingredients required for a classic cupcake! (Makes between 12-16 cakes)!
100g soft butter
150g self raising flour
150g caster sugar
2x Large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Icing
100g soft butter
225g icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Method
A nice simple one here for you folks! Basically grab all your cake ingredients and slap them into a big mixing bowl! Once done give them a jolly beating/stir for a good few minutes until a nice mixture has been made! Once done put some cupcake holders into a cup cake tray/tin and then evenly place the mixture into each holder.
Once you have filled your cakes, place them in the oven under 200 degree Celsius (gas mark 6) and bake for about 15-20 minutes until nice and golden brown!
As for your icing its pretty much the same again! Add all your icing ingrediants into a bowl and stir until the desired thickness is reached! Once your cakes are done spoon the icing over the top of each cake and decorate with sweets of your choice!!!
