Orange Cup Cake

Trenyce kept asking for cup cakes after watching it on TV last week, tried my best to fulfill her request with my not so good icing skill, she say she want to help so I let her sprinkle the colourful beads/alphabet and top with the flowers...

120g unsalted butter, soften
120g caster sugar
185g self raising flour
125 ml orange juice
2 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs
3 tbsp grated orange rind

Icing (used 2 portion to do piping on the cake)
60g unsalted butter, softed
90g icing sugar
1 tbsp orange juice

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line muffin tray with paper cases. Place butter, sugar, flour, juice, vanilla and eggs in a bowl and beat with electric beaters on low speed for 2 minutes, or until well mixed. Increase the speed and beat for 2 min, or until smooth and pale. Stir in orange rind. Spoon batter in to cases and bake for 20min, or until golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

2. For the icing, beat the butter in a bowl with electric beater until pale. Beat in half the icing sugar, the juice, then the remaining icing sugar. Spread over the cake, or decorate as desire.
