I had some nice young visitors at Gåsö. And little girls get easily bored so I decided to make cupcakes. Here are the final results with (from left) Hannah, Moa and Celina.
We made small ones, big ones, with icing and with butter cream. The raspberries and blueberries are wild ones all picked by the girls themselves for this occasion.
This is some of the ingredients we used. The cases are from www.kalasform.se.

 We made some with lemon rind and some with chocolate.

Here are the chocolate ones. This is what you need 125 g flour (2 dl), 1,5 tsp baking powder, 125 g sugar (1,5 dl, 125 g butter (softened), 2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla sugar, 2 tlbs milk. If you have a food processor just mix all the ingredients together till you get a fluffy dough. If not. Start by mixing the sugar and butter and whisk it until white and fluffy. Add one egg at the time and whisk them in in between. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Add some lemon rind or cocoa powder (4 tbls) if you wish. Put into cases and bake for 15-20 min at 200 degrees C.

If you prefer icing,  mix icing sugar with water, add a tiny bit at the time and whisk until you have the right consistency. Colour and spoon onto to cakes and decorate with berries etc
