Pokemon Cupcakes

Try making these easy Pokemon cupcakes called Pokeballs. Perfect for your next Pokemon party or something to pop on the table at your child’s next playdate. Pokeballs are the small spheres the Pokemon characters live in when not out with their trainers or living in the wild.

125g soft butter
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
dozen patty cases either black, red or white.
Baking paper

1 packet of white fondant to cover half the Pokeball and create the button. You may only need around 1/3 of the box depending on the size of your patty cases.
1 packet of mixed colour fondant (can get from Coles) which contains your red and black fondant. While you can make red and black using colouring, it can be difficult hence the suggestion you buy the Coles box of pre-made red and black.

Cupcakes – Preheat oven to 160C, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until pale. Add eggs, one at a time, then the flour and milk, stir well until combined. Spoon mixture into patty cases and bake for 20 minutes. (Monitor till turning golden)

Icing – Roll out your white fondant on baking paper. Cut circles a little bigger than your cupcake so it falls over the edges to ensure the cake is hidden. Cut your circle in half and place onto cooled cupcake. Repeat for the red half of the Pokeball. Now cut thin strips of black to lay over middle where red and white sections join. Trim black strips over hanging on each side to be inline with red and white. Now roll a small fondant white ball in hands and place in centre of cupcake. There you have a Pokeball.
