If you have kids (and possibly even if you don’t), you will by now know that the new Incredibles movie is about to hit the cinemas. If that isn’t a reason to bake some suitable cupcakes and celebrate, then I don’t know what is! The bake itself is very easy, though the decorating does take a little time. It’s so worth it though if you want to surprise your kids and maybe even hide cinema tickets under the cupcakes. Once done, serve with some milk for the kids and a calming cup of Matcha tea for yourself and sit back safe in the knowledge that you’ve probably just earned yourself a gold star from your little ones…

 

Here's what you'll need...

  • 110g butter, room temperature
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 110g self-raising flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 2tsp red food paste
  • 1-2tbsp milk

For the decoration:

  • 1tbsp apricot jam
  • 1 pack ready-coloured (various colours) royal icing in red, yellow and black
  • a little icing sugar to roll the icing out
  • “Incredibles” logo to cut out, found HERE, printed to size and cut out with parchment paper or (if you want it to be more stable) cardboard.
