Banana Cup Cake with Buttercream Icing

I bought a comb of banana 2 weeks ago,I guess Mishu and hubby is not a fan of banana.I still left with 6 overripe banana.Well,so I figure I should do something with it before it's really go bad and black.I also used some for Kueh Kodok (Banana Fritters)and some for banana cup cake which you're admiring now in this post..
I used left over butter cream icing from my Wilton's cake decorating class last week.You can see my Wilton's Lesson 1cake decoration graduation HERE

Ingredients for Butter cream:

1 cup solid white vegetable shortening

1 tsp Wilton Flavor Vanilla

2 tbsp water

1 lb pure confectioner's sugar(sugar powder)

1 tbsp Wilton Meringue Powder

a pinch of salt.

*above are for stiff consistency.* suitable for flower or roses .

(For the leave,I used thin consistency which I add 2 tsp for each cup plus 1 tsp pipping gel)

Cake Ingredients;

2 cup Self Raising flour (sifted)

8 oz butter or 2 stick

1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

4 ripe bananas

1 tsp vanilla essence

3 tbsp milk

Yield 12 cup cakes

I wonder why my cup cake have air pocket!!Maybe I beat too long or used self-raising flour?.


1:Preheat oven at 350F.Cream butter and sugar until light,then add eggs,one at a time,beat well.

2:Mix in bananas,vanilla essence milk and self raising flour until well mixed.

3:Pour the mixture into a muffin pan over cup cake paper.Bake in preheat oven for about 20-25 minutes until cooked or golden brown.

4:Remove cup cake from oven ,leave to cool before icing with butter cream icing.


I used tip M 1 for the flower and tip 67 for leaves.As you can see I still need more practise holding pipping angle.As for the flower color I used orange and rose Wilton's color which I find is better quality than other brand in the market.

After I finished icing my Banana Cup Cake,I present 8 cup cakes to Elliot's friend who did us a favor.I think it's a nice gesture to said Thank You . She love my cup cake and keep saying thank you.I'm glad she like my Banana Cake especially the icing!!.Stay tune for my Kueh Kodok(Banana Fritters) posting which is really good!!
