1. To Make the Mango Tango Cupcake — Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Place all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well with a wire whisk. Set aside. Place all wet ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Mix thoroughly. Pour wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Using a spatula, mix until everything is well incorporated. Line muffin pan with cupcake liner.
Divide the batter equally (it should be almost all the way full for each cupcake). Bake them for 12-15 minutes or until the toothpick insert and it comes out clean. Let them cool on wire rack while you prepare the frosting.
2. To Make the Buttercream — Place mango, passion fruit flakes & water in a small blender. Blend until very smooth. Strain the puree. Set aside. Place softened butter in a large bowl, shift in powdered sugar. Using a hand held mixer; mix until well incorporated. Next, add in 1/4 cup of puree and milk. Mix on medium speed until everything is well combined. If the cream is too dry add 1/2 tbsp at a time to adjust the consistency. Once ready; transfer butter cream into a piping bag filled with star tip. Pipe & decorate the cupcakes. Enjoy!
