{Rose Turkish Delight Cupcakes}

These cute little cupcakes are properly sweet.  I've made a few different prototypes of these, yes siree over the last few weeks many a turkish delight cupcake was diligently tried and tested by yours truely.  They are delicious.  I love them.

This batch I delivered around the neighbourhood so as to not waste the torturous fortune I have recently spent at the dentist, plus its just nice to deliver a pretty treat to a lovely unsuspecting neighbour for their morning tea.  Sometimes its the little things that make life sweet.  So if you too like it rosey and sweet then give these a go, they are quite lovely.  

...the cupcakes
115g butter, room temperature
225g caster sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
150g self raising flour, sifted
125 plain flour, sifted
125ml milk, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla 
4 large squares of rose turkish delight, quartered

Preheat oven to 180. Line 15 patty tins with cupcake cases. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla till pale, add eggs one at a time mixing between each one, add in the flours and milk and mix till its all combined then spoon a generous tablespoonful of mixture into each case, I do this using two tablespoons, one to pick up and one to drop off. Bake for around 18 minutes, once out of the oven press a piece of turkish delight into the hot cupcake then allow to cool.

...the frosting
225g butter, room temperature
450g icing sugar
1 - 2 tsp rose water (you decide I used 2)
pink food colouring
splash of milk if you think it needs it

Pop the butter in your mixer and beat for a couple of minutes then add the icing sugar and rose water and beat till fluffy, add the pink colouring till you get a pink you like and a tiny bit of milk if you think its necessary.
