Triple Choc Brownies

Triple Choc Brownies

Let’s make triple choc brownies!

I am personally loving baking with my kids during this time. It is a bonding experience. I am so used to baking being my job that I don’t actually spend any time with them getting creative in the kitchen. Until now! We made these absolutely scrummy triple choc brownies last week and loved every moment! Jazz yours up with a variety of sprinkles of even just melting some extra chocolate and drizzling over the top. Lets bake people happy 😘

Triple Choc Brownies - Triple Choc Brownies

From the mouth of babes!

This part is written by my daughter Olivia (aged 9). “Making the brownies was definitely an interesting and yummy project because I was very keen to see how the scrumptious combined to make a  delicious and yummy treat. I enjoyed the fact that my sister and I had to work together to weigh up the ingredients and then stir it all together. My sister Bella was good at cracking the eggs, removing the shell and doing the sprinkles. I was good at weighing the exact amount of ingredients as I enjoy Maths. Most of all I loved the eating part! Triple Choc Brownies are the best!”

Basic Buttercream

Basic Buttercream

Let’s make some super basic buttercream

This has been the buttercream icing recipe I have been using since I started cake decorating with my Grandmother (Nannie) 40 years ago! This is so basic, super easy to pipe, tastes great, sets nicely and is very versatile with colours and flavourings of your choice! My darling Nannie shared her little book of secret recipes with me before she passed away and I am so grateful to her for that. How many of you struggle to make the delicious buttercream that pipes perfectly every time?

Basic Buttercream - Basic Buttercream

Let’s keep this simple!

When our bakers start with us at The CCC we spend so much time working on buttecrream. Why? Well, it can be a very fickle thing and you need to know how to ‘read’ your buttercream. I’ve had days where the warmth of the mixing paddle actually started cooking the butter so it ended up splitting just as we were piping over 1000 cupcakes! When we first did Valentine’s Day, we made over 3000 red velvet cupcakes and piped them all with red buttercream roses. Sounds simple huh? Wrong! This was a nightmare. The kitchen looked like a massacre had occurred with red food colouring splattered across the ceiling, our staff’s hands and the walls…and then the 20 kg bowl of red buttercream split! So you really do have to take your time to really perfect your buttercream and take every step slowly, tweaking here and there.

Ingredients

  • 125g unsalted butter, softened
  • 250 pure icing sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon of high quality pure vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste (don’t be tempted to add more otherwise it may taste bitter)

Method

  1. Make sure your butter is room temperature

  2. Cream the butter using your whisk or mix master (or lovely Kitchenaid if you have one) until it starts looking more white rather than cream-coloured.

  3. Sift in your icing sugar slowly whilst continuing to mix. Always use pure icing sugar and not the mixture.

  4. Combine your milk and vanilla.

💡Anna’s Tips!

  • Don’t fancy plain ol’ vanilla buttercream, then substitute the vanilla essence with other flavours!
    • Squeeze of fresh lemon
    • Squeeze of fresh orange
    • Tablespoon of blended raspberries
    • Tablespoon of pureed strawberries
    • Shot of coffee
  • Always work with your ingredients at room temperature – you will thank me for this!
  • Use the best quality ingredients that you can afford – cupcakes are a treat so be good to yourself and don’t bake with rubbish.
  • If your buttercream splits then slowly add a little more icing sugar until it comes together.
  • Add melted white, milk or dark chocolate to your buttercream for white choc buttercream!
  • Create two-tone buttercream by filling half of your piping bag with one colour of buttercream and the other half with another colour. Use a Wilton 1M nozzle to get this exact effect on top of your cupcake.

Quick Cupcakes for Kids

Let’s make some delicious Vanilla cupcakes

There’s nothing like a handy little recipe! Let’s me show you how to make some deliciously quick cupcakes that the whole family will enjoy! 1 1 - Quick Cupcakes for Kids

Have this one up your sleeve

I always think that having key recipes up your sleeve is a must! It was for this very reason that I started The CCC! My Grandmother shared her little book of secret recipes with me before she passed away and I am so grateful to her for that. Included was this wonderfully easy cupcake recipe that we would beg her to make with us (reminding her that there were no longer butter rations!) Now let’s get started!

Ingredients

  • 1200 g plain flour (sieved)
  • 150 g caster sugar 
  • 125 g butter (room temperature)
  • 125 ml milk (room temperature)
  • 2 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt 
  • 2 teaspoon(s) baking powder 
  • 1tsp pure vanilla extract

Method

  1. Warm up the oven 170C (160C for fan oven)
  2. Put ALL the ingredients together into the mixing bowl and mix by hand or on a slow speed until no lumps remain.
  3. Put batter into cupcake cases using a cup, ice cream scoop or spoon. Fill 3/4 of each case
  4. Fill your cases up to weigh between 36g-38g for the perfect cupcake ready to decorate with buttercream frosting.
  5. Bake until springy to touch (approx. 18-20 mins depending on your oven).
  6. Gently open your oven door when the cupcakes are ready and place onto wire baking rack to cool completely before decorating (or, if you are like me, wait 1 minute before enjoying one warm from the oven – you can’t beat it!).

💡Anna’s Tips!

  • For delicious a light chocolate cupcakes, replace 35g of the flour with high quality cocoa powder – super easy!
  • Always work with your ingredients at room temperature – you will thank me for this!
  • Make sure to warm your oven up when you start mixing everything together so that it has reached the desired temperature when you need to use it!
  • Use the best quality ingredients that you can afford – cupcakes are a treat so be good to yourself and don’t bake with rubbish.

A kids birthday party that is as sweet as a cupcake

Forget disco diva’s, pirate mateys and twirling fairies … The Classic Cupcake Company’s delightfully fun cupcake decorating birthday parties are literally as ‘sweet as cupcakes’.

Your little chefs will walk out as proud as punch with their new buttercream skills and cutie-patootie (beautifully decorated) cupcakes.

Icing Breakers

Before the girls got down to the business of actually icing cupcakes they each took a turn to tell the birthday girl one thing they loved about her.  An activity I’ve not seen done before at a birthday party but it was a wonderful ice (ing) breaker and ended in the biggest girl bonding group hug I’ve ever seen.  So sweet.

Let’s get this party started

All the girls were given six deliciously naked cupcakes, a piping bag, buttercream in a choice of colours and an assortment of treasures for decorating.

With hands washed and aprons tied, they were ready to get the party started. First up the birthday girl chose her favourite song (which happened to be Justin Bieber) and they all shook and shimmered around the kitchen.

Whistle while you work

With tunes aplenty, the girls really got stuck in their creativity.  Edible glitter, sprinkles, sparkles and lustre dust aplenty, it was a joy watching them carefully decorate each cupcake using the skills they’d just learnt.

The Classic Company staff were constantly on hand, answering questions and helping each little pair hands work.
