You don't need to make a reservation for a Tale As Old As Time afternoon tea when you can create your own homemade version, starting with these adorable Belle Cupcakes. Sweet vanilla cupcakes topped with a yellow buttercream reminiscent of Belle's beautiful ballgown from our favourite tale and of course the infamous red rose. 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, gas 4). Line a cupcake tin with 12 paper cupcake cases.

  2. Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

    • 150g Butter (Unsalted) (Softened )
    • 150g Billington's Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar
  3. Gradually add in the eggs, baking powder, flour and vanilla extract and beat until fully combined. 

    • 3 Egg(s) (Free Range) (Large)
    • ½ tsp Baking Powder
    • ½ tsp Nielsen Massey Vanilla Extract
    • 150g Self-Raising White Flour
  4. Spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases filling each of them 2/3 full.

  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the cupcakes are golden and springy to touch.

  6. Whilst the cupcakes are baking make the buttercream by beating together the butter, icing sugar, food colouring and vanilla extract.

    • 250g Icing Sugar
    • 80g Butter (Unsalted) (Softened )
    • 1 tsp Nielsen Massey Vanilla Extract
    • A few drops Yellow Food Colouring
  7. Fill a piping bag with the buttercream and pipe swirls on top of the cupcakes. To finish, create a rose from the red sugar paste icing. Follow our step by step guide on how to make this decoration.
