Mac Icons Cupcakes

My first reaction when I received this order, I laughed ! The previous edible print of Mac Icon & cuppies deco was done in less than an hour; and to have someone actually order based on that picture really (pleasantly) surprised me.

This was ordered by Nani for her hubby who has become so attached to his Macbook; want it to be delivered to one big mnc in Bayan Lepas FTZ. Glad that the Penang Bridge was not congested despite the school holidays, thanks to the 3rd lane. I had no problem finding the plant, syukur ada Kenwood/Garmin+MalSing map (was amazed how many plants the mnc now has compared to my subcontractor engineer days 15 years ago)

The cuppies are flavored with real vanilla bean pods, got it from my sis from her Bali trip. My daughters simply love the cuppies, so I'll share the recipe here.

The measurement I use is based on my usual vanilla cake recipe, except no egg yolks and the vanilla milk prep.

Butter 125g (I use Anchor brand mixed with some Buttercup 75%/25%)
Caster Sugar 150g (not too sweet since topping will be added later)
Egg Whites 125g
Flour 250g (I use regular cap Sauh/Ros mixed with superfine 50%/50%)
Salt half teaspoon
Vanilla Bean 2 pods
Milk 200ml
Vanilla essence qtr teaspoon

Simmer the vanilla pod in the milk for a while, scrape the seed and add to the milk, leave to cool.
Beat the butter and sugar until creamy, add the egg whites and continue beating.
Add half of the flour, add milk, add remaining flour. Pour in cupcakes liner, 32-35g of batter each for size 9 liners.
Bake at 160C for 30 mins, voila! Oooooh the smell of vanilla during baking, kalah ambipur.......

Thanks so much for the compliments. Apple gadgets are so addictive, I still remember how much time I spent playing with my 1st Iphone from US about 1.5yrs ago
