Cooking Instructions

<p><b>Cake</b></p><p>First, put the cupcake papers in the muffin tin, so you’re not
kicking yourself later. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F Then mix all the
dry ingredients together and slowly mix in the wet ingredients until
you’ve got a runny batter. Pour it into the muffin tin. This should be
about 10 cups on a 12 cup tin. Stick muffin tin in oven and ignore that
for 15-20 minutes. These are pretty pale when they’re done, so if the
edges are starting to brown, get them the fuck out of the oven, because
they’ve been in too long.</p><p><b>Frosting</b></p><p>Smash the greasy stuff together until you stop having a colour
difference. Add the liquid and blend it as best you can. Stir the sugar
in last, a little at a time. The frosting’s not gonna be light and
fluffy, but it is recognisably buttercream frosting.</p>Once the cupcakes have cooled, slop frosting on them. There should be just about enough for all ten.
