“Yummy cupcakes with colouful smarties in them. Great for kids parties and are devoured by kids and adults alike.”
12 cupcakes

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Beat in eggs and milk and orange zest.
  3. Mix 4 packets of smarties in quickly with a few strokes otherwise they will start to dye the batter.
  4. Gently fold in the flour.
  5. Divide mixture into a 12 hole muffin tray and add a few extra smarties from remaining packet on top.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes at 180 Celsius.
  7. Note that the smarties remain soft in the cupcake.
  8. Edited to add: These are wonderful when covered with Kitten's Buttercream icing and decorated with an assortment of lollies. The photo is of some of these cupcakes that my niece ( a chef in the making if I ever saw one) and I did for my son's birthday party a few years ago.
