Medal Cupcakes

When I saw this months theme for the calendar cakes challenge hosted by Dolly Bakes and Laura loves cakes i was rather excited with Olympic theme. I had quite a few ideas of masterpieces that I could create but to date they have not come to light. So with the Olympic opening cermony on Friday i am making a cheeky little entry with my medal cupcakes and a note to self to try harder next time.

I made my cupcakes using the following trusty receipe that my mum always uses:

6oz Marg
6oz Caster Sugar
6oz Self- Raising Flour
3 Eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder

 I used the all in one method adding the baking powder after all other ingredients had been mixed. For the topping i piped the buttercream using a small star nozzle, simply piping up and down for a swirly effect. I topped with the edible medal decorations and gold, red, white and blue stars.

Next time i make these i will use some ribbon to fully create the medal apperance.
