Recipe: Hidden Treasure Cupcakes

Ahoy there me hearties, being as it’s almost international talk like a Pirate day, I thought I’d be sharing me recipe for Hidden Treasure Cupcakes with ya.
Down to the nitty gritty as we can’t be wasting out precious bounty hunting time can we?
For cakes:
6oz self raising flour
6oz castor sugar
6oz marg/butter
3 eggs
1tsp vanilla essence (optional)
Royal icing – I used coloured icing blocks but use could follow the packet instructions and make your own
Hidden Treasure:
Mix all the cake ingredients together, you can cream together the butter and sugar, slowly adding the flour and then eggs,  or just add altogether as I do.
Spoon a generous tablespoon into cupcake cases and bake for around 12-15 minutes.
Allow to cool
Using a knife, make a small circle in the top of the cake and hollow out the middle using a spoon or melon scoop, taking care not to go all the way through to the bottom.
Fill with sweets and then ice your cakes. We’ve used an X marks the spot design on ours.
