  6. Bake at 170 degree centigrade for 18 minutes or until done. Once done, cool them to room temperature.
  7. To a cup of icing sugar, add light corn syrup, a few drops of vanilla essence and 3-4 teaspoon water. Mix well. Make a smooth and thick but pouring icing. Add more water if needed. Add pink food color and decorate your cupcakes using this.
