Beat the butter and castor sugar until light.
Beat in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Fold in the sifted flour and baking powder, alternating with the milk.
Spoon a spoonful of cake batter into cupcake tins that have been lined with paper cupcake holders.

Bake in a preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.

Mix the sifted icing sugar with enough water to make a spreadable consistency.

Divide the icing into three or four bowls and colour each one a different colour, then use to decorate the individual cupcakes.

Top with silver balls or small icing flowers (available from baking shops).
