Something sweet for your sweetheart?

Raspberry Valentine’s Day Cupcakes:

Follow this recipe to make beautifully flavoured raspberry cupcakes for your loved one on this special day – or any other day if you’re feeling nice!

This recipe will make approximately 24 standard sized cakes. Half the amount of ingredients for 12 cakes.



You will need:

❤  345g of self raising flour
❤  225g of butter
❤  345g of caster sugar
❤  1 tsp of baking powder
❤  10 tbsp of milk
❤  4 eggs
❤ 24 raspberries

❤  500g of icing sugar
❤  2 eggs
❤  1tsp of vanilla essence
❤  1tsp of water
❤  Sparkles and icing of your choice to decorate


Here is a simple step by step guide for you to follow!

Step By Step Guide

Step 1: Preheat your oven to gas mark 4/180C and line a cupcake tray with cake cases. Place the butter and sugar in a  bowl and whisk until the mixture is creamy.

Step 2: Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl and fold them into the  mixture.

Step 3: Add in four of the eggs, one by one and add the milk in gradually. Make sure you beat the mixture each time you  add an ingredient.

Step 4: Scoop a tablespoon of the mixture into each cake case. Make sure they all have a similar amount of mixture in  them and place a raspberry in the centre of each one. When you have done this, put the cakes in the oven for 15-20  minutes.

Step 5: once the cakes are cooked, leave them to cool for 10-15 minutes. Once they are cool down, carefully cut the top of  each cake off so the surface is flat. (I recommend eating the tops of the cakes! Yummy!)

Step 6: Whisk the icing sugar and the eggs whites of the eggs together until the mixture is thick, and add a drop of  vanilla essence. Spread a thick layer of the icing on each cake and decorate them in your own personal way!

My masterpiece!

I hope you enjoy the cakes as much as me and my wonderful friends did 🙂
Goodbye for now ❤
