couldn't wait to try baking with them.
I used the recipe from the Primrose Bakery cupcake book and it turned out perfectly. The cake mixture has crushed strawberries mixed into it. I've never used real strawberries in a cake mixture before and was quite pleased with the result. The cupcake is then filled with a teaspoon of strawberry jam in the centre, iced with vanilla butter cream and finished with a whole strawberry on the top...yum!
Don't they just look so cute in my cake tin?! As it was Father's Day today and we were off for a roast at Karl's Dads I took some round with me which seemed to go down well!
