Baked Goods: EXO cupcakes

I'm trying my best to get back to blogging Monday to Friday and not wanting to leave tomorrow with nothing I thought I'd post another baking blog. This one is as you've guessed it dedicated to EXO, I had an EXO day with my friend Nichola and decided that the occasion deserved the appropriate baked goodness hence the title of this post.

140g unsalted butter, softened
100g caster sugar 
2 Large eggs
140g self raising flour 
For the buttercream 
85g unsalted butter, softened 
175g icing sugar
1tsp lemon extract

To begin with I prepped my bun tin tray (I used 2 trays) with 16 cupcake cases and preheated the oven to 160°c.
Next I weighed out my ingredients, I always measure out the butter last, using my handheld electric whisk I mixed the caster sugar and butter together, then added the eggs and whisked again until mixed well.
Next I added in the flour and mixed again until well combined, once ready I spooned the bun mixture into the 16 cupcake cases and then placed into the oven for 20 minutes.
While the cupcakes were cooling I prepared the icing sugar and butter and mixed till it formed into a buttercream then added the lemon extract and mixed well. Once the buttercream was ready I rolled out some purple icing and once ready cut out 9 circles and on each circle using writing icing I wrote each members name in hangul (Korean) and then their name in English underneath (in Baekhyun and Chanyeol's case I wrote BY & CY). While that was setting I melted 120g white Chocolate and then smoothed the chocolate onto 7 of the cupcakes and let set. Back to the buttercream on the 9 cupcakes left I smoothed on the buttercream and then added the icing circles onto each one. Once the chocolate has set on the other 7 using another tube of writing icing I wrote on 3 of the cupcakes spelling out E-X-O.
Well I kept this post short but after a taste test definitely sweet. Hope you enjoyed another baking blog.
See you soon!
