  • Step 1

    Find yourself a suitable cooking area: an RV, laundromat
    super-lab, or fake pest-control business, depending on what
    stage of the plotline you’re at
    Preheat the oven to 350F/180C/165C fan assisted/gas mark 4.
    Line a 12-hole muffin pan with paper cups
    Put all the cake ingredients except the colour and milk into a
    large bowl and beat with a handheld electric mixer or wooden
    spoon until light and fluffy
    Add blue colour little by little until the mix is a strong blue.
    Add enough milk to give a ‘dropping’ consistency
    Divide the mix into the paper cups

  • Step 2

    Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until well risen, golden brown and
    firm to the touch. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes, then
    transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely
    To make the buttercream frosting: beat the butter in a large
    bowl until soft. Gently add half the confectioners’ sugar and
    beat until smooth

  • Step 3

    Add the remaining confectioners’ sugar with a little milk,
    adding more as necessary to make a light fluffy icing
    Add the yellow food colouring little by little and mix until
    well combined
    Spoon the icing into a piping bag fitted with a large star
    nozzle and pipe swirls onto the cupcakes
    Add shards of blue meth crunch to complete the look
