Method

1) First, preheat the oven to 160°C and line a cupcake tin with cupcake cases (not muffin cases)
2) Next, in a large bowl, add the egg, oil and sugar together and beat well
3) Then, add in the Carb Killa® White Chocolate Shake and mix thoroughly
4) Sieve the flour, baking powder and Hydra 6® Protein Powder into the mixture and stir together
5) After this, spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases -  each one should roughly weigh around 40g
6) Tap the tin against your surface to even the mixture in the cases
7) Then, place into the middle of the oven for 16-17 mins until golden brown
8) Lastly, remove and allow to cool

For the frosting...
1) To start, add the butter into a large mixing bowl and beat to soften
2) Next, sieve the icing sugar and Hydra 6® Protein Powder into the bowl and add the milk
3) Beat the frosting really well ... use those biceps!
4) Then, place in the fridge for 10 minutes to thicken
5) Once thickened, spoon the frosting into a piping bag and pipe onto your cupcakes. Decorate with Birthday Cake Carb Killa® Bar slices and enjoy!
P.s do not put the cupcakes in the fridge
