  • 50g ground almond
  • 200g all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 200g butter
  • 200g sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • zest (grated from 1 lemon)
  • 40g milk
  • Buttercream icing:

  • 60g water
  • 160g sugar
  • 200g butter (softened)

Instructions

  1. To make cupcakes: Preheat oven to 180°C. Sift ground almond, flour and baking powder together and set aside. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla essence and zest.
  2. Fold in the sifted flour mixture, alternating with milk, until well mixed. Divide the batter into 6 portions and colour each portion individually with a rainbow colour. Spoon the coloured mixture into 6 individual piping bags. Pipe 6 different layers of colour into the cupcake cases and bake for 15-18 minutes, until top is golden brown.
  3. To make buttercream: In a stand mixer, whip egg yolks. In a saucepan, cook water and sugar to 115°C and slowly pour into the whipped egg yolks; whip until cool. Add softened butter to emulsify.
  4. To decorate cupcakes: Divide the icing into 6 portions and colour each portion individually with a rainbow colour. Spoon the coloured mixture into a piping bag. Pipe a swirl onto the cupcake and decorate as desired.
