Perfect Cup Cakes with Fluffy Vanilla Icing
Ingredients:
Cupcakes
Icing
Method:
Cupcakes
  1. For best results use the KitchenAid Platinum Stand Mixer KSM156
  2. Preheat oven to 190°C (170°C fan forced). Line muffin pans with paper cases
  3. Place the mixing bowl on the stand mixer. Attach the flex edge or flat beater and the pouring shield. Add the flours to the mixing bowl. Mix on speed 2 until well combined. Set flour mixture aside, wipe bowl and return bowl to the mixer
  4. Place the butter into the mixing bowl with the flex edge beater or flat beater. Beat on speed 6 until lightly whipped. Add the sugar and beat on speed 6 for 5 minutes or until very light and fluffy. Add the vanilla, lemon rind and eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition
  5. Add the flour and mix lightly on speed 2 until well combined. Using an ice cream scoop fill each patty case about 3/4 full with a large scoop of batter
  6. Bake on the centre shelf of the oven for 20 minutes or until firm and lightly golden. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack to cool completely before icing
Tips & Hints:
  • Additional 3 or 4.8 litre bowls are available for the KitchenAid Platinum Stand Mixer KSM156
  • An old fashioned ice cream scoop is great for filling the patty pans with batter. The rounded shape created by the scoop helps to create the perfect top of the cup cake
Icing
  1. For best results use the KitchenAid Platinum Stand Mixer KSM156
  2. Using the flex edge beater or flat beater, beat the butter on speed 6 for 1 minute
  3. Place on the pouring shield, add half the icing sugar and beat until combined, add the milk followed by the remaining icing sugar and vanilla
  4. Beat for 3 minutes or until very light and fluffy
  5. To assist icing use a piping bag or thick plastic storage bag and turn the cupcake with one hand as you pipe on the icing with the other hand. This gives a perfectly centred and shaped iced top
Tips & Hints:
  • Use warm milk for for the perfect icing, cold milk will not allow the icing to whip to a smooth fluffy consistency
  • Different looks to the icing are achieved by using various pipes in the piping bag, these are available at speciality cookware shops or better supermarkets
