Best sponge recipe for cupcakes

A gender reveal party is not complete without a decorated cake! While there are many ways to make a sponge cake, I always go for a Madeira base sponge.

Madeira cake is a classic sponge cake that is perfect for all sorts of celebrations. It has a lovely light and fluffy texture that is perfect for cupcakes. I always use this recipe for my gender reveal cupcakes, and they always turn out perfectly.

The key to getting a perfect Madeira cake is to make sure that you cream everything together until they are light and fluffy. Once the batter is made, simply bake it in a preheated oven until it is cooked through. And there you have it, the perfect sponge cake for all your celebrations!

Piping nozzle for icing

Are you planning a gender reveal party? If so, you’ll want to be sure to have some delicious gender reveal cupcakes on hand! And the best way to decorate gender reveal cupcakes is with a piping bag and nozzle. I used a nozzle that looks like the middle one in the image above. But how do you insert the nozzle into the piping bag?

Check out the video below for a step-by-step guide. First, you’ll want to choose the right size nozzle for your piping bag. Then, cut off the tip of the piping bag to create an opening that is about the same size as the nozzle. Next, insert the nozzle into the piping bag and twist it to secure it in place. Finally, fill the piping bag with your desired icing or frosting, and you’re ready to decorate!

Gender reveal cupcakes recipe

  • Heat your oven to 150°c fan/170°c/Gas 2. Place the cupcake cases in your bun tins.
  • Put all the ingredients in a food mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and mix on a slow speed to combine everything. Then increase the speed and mix for about 1 minute until the mixture is smooth and pale in colour.
  • Spoon the mixture into each case, being careful not to overfill. About ¾ full should be enough. Bake in the oven for about 22 minutes or until a light golden brown.
  • Leave to cool on a wire rack. Meanwhile, make the icing. Mix the icing with the butter and vanilla essence until smooth. Divide the mixture into 2 bowls and add the food colouring. Mix until you have the colour you want. Place the pink icing in one bag and the blue icing in another bag.
  • Start by piping one colour at a time in a swirl direction. Finally, top with some sprinkles.

How long do cupcakes last

I had some of these leftovers a week later from baking, and they were still good. I kept them in an airtight container and in a cool place.

Only freeze the cupcakes without the icing. They can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months.
