Just in time for Easter! These peanut butter cupcakes are finished off with chocolate buttercream nests and chocolate eggs.
Festive cupcakes with a sprinkle of Christmas inside too!
I took the idea of the traditional Eton Mess (fresh cream, meringue and strawberries) but used buttercream. The inside of the cupcake is stripy, which is a nice surprise when you bite into it!
I love the refreshing blend of fruits that you get in Pimm’s: strawberry, cucumber, orange and mint. I’ve been thinking about how best to combine all the flavours into a cupcake and this is the result. The buttercreams all work really well, none of them overpowered each other including the cucumber which I thought would be awful because it’s quite watery.
Summer strawberries, mmm delicious! Making your own strawberry sauce is so incredibly easy, there’s no reason not make it. I loved opening up the cake box and letting the smell of fresh strawberry hit me.
I love bananas, but sometimes I buy too many and they all go off. Never mind, you can put them to good use with these delicious cupcakes.
Instead of doing something with Guiness as is traditional on St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to use another Irish drink to whip up some Bailey’s Cupcakes!
This is the recipe I always use as a base for my cupcakes
