Strawberry Milkshake Cupcakes

I made these delicious cupcakes to celebrate my birthday, and they went down a treat! The Nesquik powder and Party Rings make me feel so nostalgic and it’s so exciting to be able to combine them in a fun dessert. The best part is that they actually taste of a strawberry milkshake! Make sure to use colourful cupcake cases and a generous serving of frosting! Enjoy 🙂

On another occasion, I used the left-over strawberry milkshake frosting to decorate vanilla cupcakes and dyed the frosting blue to match the cupcake cases.

For the batter:

430g plain flour

3 tsp baking powder

265g granulated sugar

375ml milk

125ml vegetable oil

125g butter

2 tbsp strawberry yoghurt

1 tsp vanilla essence

2 eggs

200g strawberry Nesquik powder

For the frosting:

200g butter

400g icing sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence

120g strawberry Nesquik powder

Extras:

1 pack of ‘Party Rings’ to decorate

Strawberry jam as a filling

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 160°C
  • Combine all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl
  • Cream the butter and sugar together, then add to the dry ingredients
  • Combine all the other wet ingredients in a separate mixing bowl, then add to the other mixture
  • Spoon the batter into cupcake cases
  • Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes
  • When the cupcakes have cooled, use a sharp knife to cut the core out of each cupcake and fill the hole with a spoonful of strawberry jam
  • To make the frosting, cream the butter, icing sugar, vanilla essence, food colouring and Nesquik
  • Pipe onto each cupcake and half-submerge a Party Ring biscuit inside the frosting before it has set
