4th July Cupcakes.

Hummingbird Bakery vanilla cupcake recipe with ingredients

Happy 4th for any American readers. Growing up expat has definitely led to a love of all types of public holidays from the 4th, to labour day to the holy month of Ramadan to National Day. I love seeing how countries celebrate. I found some American themed sprinkles and decided to make some vanilla cupcakes using the Hummingbird Bakery recipe.

So I don’t love the recipe for hummingbird frosting, well I love it on one cupcake but not on 12 cupcakes that uses 500g of icing sugar! I made a half portion and added some more sugar as it wasn’t thick enough but it still was quite thin. Does anyone have a good icing recipe?

Also any tips for piping icing? It’s one of my goals for summer!
