Ice Cream Sundae Cupcakes | Recipe

It's been SO long since I've baked and I miss it soooo much. It's the perfect thing to do on your day off or weekend and I'm always looking for new recipes or changing old ones to create something new.
Today I used an old favourite of mine, my Funfetti Cupcakes recipe (from 2015... !!)and turned them into Ice Cream sundae ones.
For the cupcake itself I used my the same as my funfetti recipe but just added a whole lot more sprinkles and some more vanilla essence, however for the decoration I definitely made some changes! I've left the ingredients and method with the new changes down below for you to use...

For the Cupcakes
125g Caster Sugar
125g Self Raising Flour
2 Large Free Range Eggs
125g Unsalted Butter
1/4 teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda
1 1/2 tablespoons of milk
3/4 (or a whole if you're feeling brave !!) teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
Brightly Coloured Sprinkles

For the Icing
500g Icing Sugar (sifted)
250g Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
Vanilla Extract (however much you like)
Pink Gel Food Colouring
Ice Cream Wafers cut to little rectangles
Brightly Coloured Sprinkles
Piping Bag & Nozzle
To Make the Cupcakes
Pre heat your oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
Cream together the butter and sugar until its smooth and creamy.
Add all the dry ingredients (Flour & Bicarbonate of Soda) and mix until smooth.
Then add your eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly and then mix your sprinkles in.
Line your muffin tray with cupcake cases and one by one put the cake batter into the cases, filling them about halfway.
Put them in the oven for about 20 minutes. To know they're cooked, insert a toothpick into the middle of one and if it comes out clean, they're done.
Leave to cool.

To Make the Icing
Mix the butter on its own for at least 5 minutes so it goes very soft and pale. Then add in the icing sugar a little bit at a time and mix until its creamy and soft. (It takes a while so just give it time!) Add some milk if you think its needed. 
To make the icing pink just add a tiny drop of colouring and mix it all together until you get the colour you want. (Obviously the more colouring you add, the pinker it'll be!)
Once you've got the colour you want, mix in the sprinkles (you can never have to many!!)
When you cakes are cool enough, put the icing in the piping bag and get piping.  I used the Wilton 1M tip on these cupcakes. I then put in the cut up wafers so they look more like Ice Creams!
