Mini Pirates Cupcakes

My friend (Ivleen) called me last Sunday and informed me about the Theme Party she was planning for her elder daughter's 9th birthdayThe theme was "Pirates"This inspired me to bake these mini cupcakes for her party.I really enjoyed making them and I am sure you will also enjoy looking at them..When my younger daughter Aaesha(she is 2) came home from school and said "Mumma tame keklu saru banayvu chhe".That means Mumma have made so beautiful cakes.I felt I have satisfied and had sense of achievement. :)She helped me to put little flags on it and said mumma see I can make these too.I have used butter cream icing for frosting.My friend Amy used  to make these cupcake for various special occasions.

Butter Cream Icing

  • 1cup butter

  •   I created these flags at home and enjoyed doing that. It was a very spontaneous thought of getting the printouts of the "pirate" symbol. It reminded me of Johnny Depp in "Pirates of the Caribbean"
  • As for eggless recipe you can substitute 2 eggs with half a cup of curd.
