Its ok to be a little sinful.
Here are some amazing cupcakes (well, mine aren't exactly cupcakes, I ran out of small cases :S) They smell amazing and taste just as good!
Awww, look at the little tiny cake(pic 2), I ran out of mix XD

Warning: Picture heavy!

Damn I need a piping bag! Using greaseproof paper is so damned messy. *begs santa*

I made more of these the other day but with double the quantity of milk. They were super squishy and sticky and oh-so-yummy!! So its your choice now whether to get mega soft or super squishy cupcakes ^^

    Measure out the mixture into the cupcake cases. The easiest way to do this is to use a desert spoon and a teaspoon, desert spoon to spoon the mixture over and the teaspoon to scrape the extra mix off the desert spoon.

    Pipe on the frosting. You can do this with a piping bag and nozzle or using baking parchment folded into a cone (same way you fold filter paper to fit a funnel) with a small hole snipped in the end.

I'm always a little iffy about cups too. You can buy cup measures, they're a little similar to those little medicine measuring things.

And yes, icing sugar is the same as powdered and confectioners sugar Happy

These look so good! However, I'm a bit apprehensive about the cups measurements. Last time I tried it (even though I found a tea glass that is able to contain one cup worth of water) the result wasn't exactly right.
And ehm, icing sugar. Is that like powdered sugar?

So I have no experience baking and tried to use 1 1/2 cups baking soda.

What a mess.

My pastry chef mother says 1 1/2 teaspoons sounds more about right.

You might want to fix that.
