Pretty in Pink

These cupcakes I made for me and my friend when we went dancing (Just over a month ago I started ballet classes. At first I was shy but now I feel more confident there.) They are just a simple vanilla sponge with strawberry icing. These cupcakes were very pink  when I had finished decorating them.

You will need: 
A batch of Victoria sponge
50g icing sugar
red food colouring
strawberry flavouring
and any decorations you want
  1.  Pre-heat the oven at 180 degrees C (350 Fahrenheit and gas mark 4)
  2. For the sponge make a Victoria sponge mix and put an equal amount of mix into the cupcake cases. put them in the oven until cooked and golden brown.
  3. For the icing put about 50g icing sugar in a bowl and and enough water so that it is runny (make sure it isn't to runny). Add the strawberry flavouring and red food colouring.
  4. When the cupcakes have cooled completely put 1tsp of the icing on each of the cupcakes.
  5. For more decoration you could add anything; hundreds and thousands, silver balls and rice paper butterflies.
