Smarty Party Cupcakes

READY IN: 50mins




  • Blend butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs and milk and orange zest.
  • Mix 4 packets of smarties in quickly with a few strokes otherwise they will start to dye the batter.
  • Gently fold in the flour.
  • Divide mixture into a 12 hole muffin tray and add a few extra smarties from remaining packet on top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 180 Celsius.
  • Note that the smarties remain soft in the cupcake.
  • Edited to add: These are wonderful when covered with Kitten's Buttercream icing and decorated with an assortment of lollies. The photo is of some of these cupcakes that my niece ( a chef in the making if I ever saw one) and I did for my son's birthday party a few years ago.
