Mini Yamcakes with Butter Icing

 After that sore-throat and hateful bland diet,
I've been really craving for anything sweet so i thought of making a pancake with icing. Yes, icing! It's really my favorite part in any cake and cupcakes.

It excites me so much to make an icing so i gathered all the ingredients that i will need.

I know i'm supposed to use a Powdered sugar/ icing sugar but the only stock available in our kitchen is this Caster Sugar.
- no choice.
Im not prepared for this. Well it's still a sugar after all. right? hehe.

So here goes my version of making an icing and pancakes:

  1. Whip the butter.
  2. Add the icing sugar and the vanilla.
  3. Then keep mixing it until fluffy and thoroughly combined. (Good if you have an electric mixer)
  4. Set aside.
Note: Because i used the caster sugar, the batter wasn't that smooth so for best results, use powdered icing sugar instead.

I bet everyone knows how to cook a pancake, well i'm still gonna write it anyway.
  1. Put the hotcake mix a large bowl.
  2. Add the eggs, melted butter and a cup of water.
  3. Mix gently until combined. 
  4. Melt butter on the pan. It should foam and sizzle.
  5. Using a spoon,  drop a batter and let it form into a small circle.
  6. Cook until the tops of the pancakes are full of bubbles and the bottoms are golden brown.
  7. Flip the pancakes and cook until the other side is golden brown too.


I layered 3 mini pancakes and fill it with the icing batter. I don't have an icing bag so i used an ordinary ice plastic bag instead. hihi. So here's how my Mini Yamcakes with Butter Icing looks like,  the product of my curiosity and craving for sweets.


I didn't achieve the beautifully-made icing look so it looks really kinda messy. Awww. But it does taste yummy! So far, i'm happy with the results. Yey! I might as well try making icing using powdered sugar and adding up cream cheese + food coloring next time. (Cream cheese Icing.)

So there, satisfied me with this very sweet icing...for a while.  Still craving for more pastries.

Seeing posts from Coffeehan, i also want to visit J. Cuppacakes and Vanilla Cupcake Bakery.  The shops are really inviting and so kawaii. The cupcakes looks really delicious. I feel like i want to own a shop like that. How i wish.

Loving cupcakes too much - I've been addicted ordering customized cupcakes from several online shops  before and then i will just pick it up somewhere. This reminds me of the cupcakes i ordered from Arline last month, really yummy cupcakes! How about we put up a cupcake shop in all shades of PINK? hehehe.

Oh by the way, just recently a friend of mine promised that she will bake cupcakes for me too. I just don't know when but i am really looking forward to that very sweet treat.

Till next, guys!


  1. Mukhang yummy nga!! Meron kayang hindi marunong magluto ng hotcakes.. ang bff kong si Zaicy, haha! Ngayon ko lang nalaman na may iba iba pa palang klase ng sugar, ayan kasi naman wala akong talent sa baking! Pero pwede bang maging stockholder na lang sa gagawin nyong cupcake shop in all shades of pink??
