With Wimbledon on, I couldn’t think of a more appropriate recipe to share than my Strawberries & Cream cupcakes!
With a hidden layer of sweet strawberry jam and a creamy vanilla topping, these beauties are perfect to watch the tennis action with a glass of cold Pimms! Perfect polkadot cups by Iced Jems!
This recipe makes 12 large cupcakes and will last for 3-4 days before putting on the fresh strawberry.
Cream together the Stork/butter and caster sugar.
Add in the eggs one at a time.
Then add in your flour, both self raising and plain. Then add in flavouring if you are using it.
These are gorgeous and perfect to enjoy on a hot summers day together with a glass of cold berry cider!
Enjoy as they are or top with vanilla buttercream, I’ve used a 1M nozzle for this swirl and topped with a fresh strawberry.
