Spring Flower Vanilla Sponge Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

As the poem saying"Spring Bring Showers May Bloom Flowers"!! That right!! Yes!! it's been pouring for almost 2 weeks now.I'm not fond of wet days for whole week long because it's make me miserable.But now I don't mind now because the rain washed away the pollen .This year my seasonal allergy is so bad and it's make me suffered big time.I don't have mood to cook or bake. Actually I baked this cupcakes for Mother's Day but don't have the chance to post it until now...But for Mother's Day I tried to bake something simple and special.I adapted this recipe from tiffinbiru.Instead of using 9 inch pan I used paper liner as cupcake..Beside that I found a Spring theme paper cup which I like..Looking at the flowery paper cup make me thinking about beautiful Spring flowers.








Ingredients: Adapted from here with my translation!
160 gm granulated sugar
15 gm gram ovallate*optional*
5 large eggs
125 gm all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
40 ml water
75 gram butter(melted)


Cream Cheese Frosting:
Ingredients:
1 lb (2 x 8 oz packages) cream cheese,softened slightly,cut into small pieces
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter,softened slightly,cut into small pieces
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract ( I used clear pure vanilla extract)
5 cups sifted confectioner's sugar(sugar powder)
1 tsp meringue powder *optional*
few food coloring

Method:

1:Prepare 12 muffin pan with cupcake liners.Heat oven to 325 F.
Combine flour and baking powder,sifted,set aside.Beat sugar and ovallate with mixer until combined. Add in eggs one at one time and then add in flour mixture ,beat until combined.Pour in water and beat at high speed until frothy.
2:Add in vanilla essence and mix well.Pour in melted butter into the batter and mix well with spatula until well combined.
3:Pour the batter into the paper liners(The original recipe used 9 inch pan)Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then move onto a wire rack to cool completely before top with your desire frosting.

Method for Icing:

1:Beat cream cheese and the butter with mixer until smooth,about 3 minutes.Add the vanilla extract.Gradually add the sugar and beat until well incorporated..Add in meringue powder ,beat for few more rounds ,then removed.
2:Store in fridge first before pipping or pipping immediately with your favorite color and shape
