I have been baking cupcakes with my kids since my younger boy was 3 years old.
Both my boy(5) and girl(6) are now able to make cupcakes entirely on their own. They measure the flour, sugar, sift the flour, crack the eggs, etc. I only have to help them to turn on the mixer and put the cupcakes into the oven.
I let the kids each bake 10 cupcakes each, so that each of them can go through the entire process. My kids love to eat the cupcakes and frosting very much.
Cream butter and sugar together till light and fluffy before beating in eggs, one at a time. Fold in half the sifted flour, add milk and vanilla and then fold in the remaining flour. Put into the oven (150 degree Celsius) bake until golden brown.
Chocolate frosting (enough for 2 or 3 cupcakes) :
Butter (25 grams)
Icing sugar (2 big spoons)
Hershey’s chocolate powder (2 big spoons)
Milk (2 big spoons)
Wait for the butter to soften. Then put butter, sugar, chocolate powder in a big bowl and mix with a big spoon, slowly add the milk until it becomes smooth and creamy.
