A few weeks ago, Philly were one of the generous sponsors at the Bloggers Brunch which I attended. Not only did they provide us with a very yummy lunch, but they also supplied bloggers with a thermal goodie bag, filled with the latest products from Philly.
I popped the yummy tubs of Philly in the back of my refrigerator, so that the kids couldn’t spot them (especially the Cadbury chocolate one)… until last night.
We made the Vanilla Cupcakes in the afternoon, straight after school.
And then, I was mean. I made the kids wait until after dinner before I allowed them frost and eat their cupcake.
But I was assured by both kids that it was definitely worth the wait. Definitely!
Vanilla Cup Cakes with Philly Chocolate Frosting
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
125g butter, softened
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, lightly beaten
11/2 cups SR flour, sifted

250g PHILADELPHIA Frosting Made with CADBURY Chocolate
100’s and 100’s, chopped nuts, coconut etc for decoration
1. BEAT the butter and sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time beating well between each addition. Fold through the flour and milk until combined. Spoon into 12 x 1/3 cup capacity patty paper lined muffin pans.
2. BAKE in a moderate oven 180oC for 15-20 minutes or until cooked when tested. Stand 5 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack. Cool.
3. SPREAD or pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes then decorate as desired. Serve immediately.

A few important notes from us:
If you’re not going to eat all of the cupcakes, cover and refrigerate them.
We overcame this, by only frosting the cupcakes we were going to eat, right then and there.
When you’ve finished frosting, place the lid back on the tub and return to the refrigerator – immediately. This will stop you from getting a spoon and spooning it straight into your mouth. We failed this part.
