Method

Cupcakes
Preheat oven to 190°C conventional (170°C fan forced). Beat eggs and Chelsea Raw Sugar together. Add oil and stir through then add in all other ingredients and mix well.

Grease cupcake tin (or line with cupcake cases) and pour mixture in to about ¾ full.  Bake at for about 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Transfer to wire rack and allow to cool.

Cream Cheese Frosting
Beat butter and cream cheese together with an electric mixer. Add Chelsea Icing Sugar, vanilla and sufficient milk to make a light fluffy frosting consistency. Using a piping bag, pipe a generous amount onto the cooled cupcake and decorate as desired.

Additional tips

For a fresh twist, replace the milk in the icing with lemon or orange juice and add 1/2 a teaspoon of rind.
