'Children In Need' Bake Sale

'Children In Need' Bake Sale.

Today is 'Children In Need' day. It's a charity event raising money for needy children.
For this event we are trying to raise as much money at work as possible. One of the things we are doing is a 'bake sale'.
So I baked some chocolate cupcakes last night and took them into work today.

Here is what we did for 'Children In Need' last year

Chocolate Heaven


- 3 cups flour
- 2 cups caster sugar
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 2 tsps baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup veg oil
- 2 tsps vanilla

1- Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
2- Add water, oil and vanilla.
3- Beat with electric mixer until blended.
4- Spoon into greased or paper-lined muffin cups, filling 3/4 full (I did both).
5- Bake at 180C (350F) for 15 to 18 minutes.
6- Remove from pan and cool on wire.
7- Frost and decorate as desired.

Hello there!
May i ask a few doubts that i have in mind..
1) Can i replace baking soda with baking powder? (what's the difference?)
2) Can i replace caster sugar with normal fine sugar? (Difference again?)
3) Does the vanilla you mentioned refers to vanilla essence?

Thank you! :)
