Cream the butter and sugar together to form a smooth mixture. Add the eggs and syrup, and then the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt, which you have previously mixed together. Stir the mixture well and gradually add the milk, until it has a thick, creamy consistency. Pour the mixture into the paper cupcake cases until they are ¾ full. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 170°C for about 20 minutes (test the cupcakes with a toothpick to see if they are ready). I decided to use ricotta frosting for the cupcakes, which is tasty and light, and I recommend it instead of butter frosting.
Easy Ricotta Frosting
Sift the icing sugar into the ricotta, add the food coloring and stir well. If necessary, use a food processor to make the mixture even smoother. Leave to set in therefrigerator for about half an hour. Frost the cupcakes using a piping bagand decorate with edible little hearts and amarenas.
