For the recipe Surprise Inside Cupcakes

For Cupcake:

1 box Dr. Oetker Nona Cupcakes Vanilla
3 Eggs (Large)
120 ml Water
120 ml Vegetable Oil
1 tsp Strawberry Emulco
1 tsp Coffee Emulco
1 tsp Dr. Oetker Nona Pandan Emulco
1 tsp Orange Emulco

For Decoration:

Dr. Oetker Nona Mini Button Sugar

For Frosting:

200 g Butter (softened)
600 g Icing Sugar
1 tbsp Dr. Oetker Nona Vanilla Flavour




Place the Dr. Oetker Nona Cupcakes Vanilla, water, oil and eggs in a mixing bowl. Mix at high speed for 1 minute or until batter is light and fluffy.


Preheat the oven to 180˚C.


Divide batter into 4 bowls. Add 1 teaspoon of strawberry emulco in a bowl, mix well. Repeat for the other emulco.


Place the paper cups in muffin moulds. Starting with one batter, spoon a small spoonful of batter into the paper cup. Then spoon another colour as close to the edge to cover the previous colour. 
Repeat until the paper cup is 2/3 full.


Bake at 180 ˚C for 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.


Use a piping nozzle to core the centre of the cupcakes and fill with the sprinkles.


Cream butter, icing sugar and vanilla flavour in a bowl until mixture is stiff.


Pipe the frosting over the cupcakes.
