Great for when the kids get home from school.

Preheat the oven to 180°C / Gas 4, and line a tin with 12 cupcake cases.

In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.

Add the eggs, one at a time mixing well between each addition, then add the vanilla extract.

Carefully fold in the flour then spoon into the cupcakes cases, until they are about 2/3 full.

Bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

Leave to cool completely on a cooling wire.

To make the buttercream beat together the butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy then add the vanilla bean paste and mix until well distributed.

Fill a piping bag with the buttercream and pipe onto the cakes, decorate with vanilla pods.
