Tea Break - Vanilla Cupcakes


We love searching for our monthly tea break recipes here at Jewelry From Home, we could spend hours searching for the prettiest biscuits and the fluffiest sponge cakes. This month we're keeping it simple and focusing on the classic vanilla cupcake. Whilst it might seem a little plain its a perfect recipe to have in your back pocket for when you have last minute guests. You can make them look fancy with pretty colored icing, fresh fruit and a vast array of shop bought sugar flowers. Arrange on your best plate and you have yourself perfect tea party. We've been having a good search around the internet and compiled an essential vanilla cupcake list.

For a classic base we trust Mary Berry's Vanilla Cupcake Recipe completely
