Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4.
Line a cup cake tray with 12 paper cases.
Sieve the self-raising flour into a mixing bowl, add the caster sugar and butter, then slowly mix in the beaten eggs.
Whisk the mixture for approximately two minutes until smooth and creamy.
Spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases until they are half full.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes and remove when light, fluffy and golden brown.
Leave to cool on a wire rack.
Take the Renshaw Vanilla Frosting and decant evenly between two bowls. Add a teaspoon of blue food colouring paste to one and a teaspoon of pink food colouring paste to the other and blend each until even.
Fill a piping bag fitted with a star tip nozzle with the blue coloured frosting and starting from the inside and working out, pipe onto six of the cupcakes to create a swirl.
Clean the piping bag and nozzle and refill with the pink coloured frosting, piping onto the six remaining cupcakes from the inside out.
Roll out thinly the Renshaw White, Pastel Green, Pastel Yellow and Teddy Bear Brown Ready to Roll Icing on a work surface lightly dusted with icing sugar.
Using a baby bottle, baby grow, rattle and bunny rabbit shaped cutters, carefully cut out the shapes out of your preferred colours.
Use a different coloured icing to add a round button, rolled and flattened between the fingers, to the centre of the round part of the rattle.
Mark button and collar details on to the baby grow using a sharp knife.
Leave the icing to set, and once rigid, brush on edible lustre dust to create a shine or more intricate teat detail on the baby bottle shaped icing.
Place the decorations on top of the frosting piped cupcakes.
