How-To:
  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC
  2. In a large bowl place the butter and sugar
  3. Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth and pale
  4. Beat in the eggs one at a time
  5. Fold in the vanilla extract, Tequila Rose and any colouring if you choose to add any
  6. Sieve the flour into the cupcake batter and add the two tbsp of milk. Fold the ingredients together, do not over stir
  7. Place tablespoons of the cupcake batter into cupcake cases
  8. Bake in the centre of the preheated oven for 15 mins or until the cupcakes spring back when pressed lightly
  9. Place on a wire cooling rack to cool completely before frosting
  10. When the cupcakes are cool we can begin by making the frosting
  11. In a large bowl beat the butter until smooth and creamy
  12. Now gradually add the icing sugar a little at a time. You may want to use a wooden spoon to cream this icing sugar with the butter or you will end up in a cloud of icing sugar if you use the electric mixer. Add the flavouring (in this case,Tequila Rose) and salt at this stage to help bring the mixture together.
  13. Now move back to using an electric mixer. If the mixture is still very stiff add 1tbsp of milk and any colouring you choose to use and beat on a medium/high speed for around 10 minutes or until the mixture is smooth. You can add more icing sugar or more milk to change the consistency slightly if you wish. The consistency will vary slightly depending on the temperature of your kitchen.
