Vanilla bean cupcakes

Makes 12 cupcakes approx
Preparation Time : 15 minutes
Cooking Time : 25 minutes

2 eggs
Thickened cream
Vanilla bean extract or vanilla bean scraped (1/2 a bean) should be one teaspoon
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 cup self raising flour

Add the two eggs to a 250ml measuring cup and then fill to the 250ml mark with the thickened cream.  Pour into mixing bowl and beat with electric mixer for one minute or two.

Then add the teaspoon of vanilla bean to the mix and the sugar.  Beat this mix for 3-4 minutes. 

Then sift the flour into the mixture with wooden spoon until blended.  Place the mix one by one into the little muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes on 180 degrees celcius (350F) until they look golden brown.  This should make approx 12 and only fill the cups just under halfway as they puff up.

I used the CK icing for the toppings and my own decorations.
