I made 50 of these glitter cupcakes for a friends 18th Birthday party. To make the cupcake sponge use my James Bond Surprise cupcake recipe (which makes 12). The recipe below tells you how to make the buttercream and decorate the cupcakes.
Mix together the icing sugar and butter. Add the milk and vanilla extract and beat until smooth.
Mix the food colouring into half the buttercream. Using a piping bag with a star tip, pipe the buttercream in swirls on each cupcake. Do half purple and half plain.
