Mother's Day Cupcakes

I know, I know Mother's Day was months ago...... but I just found some photos of the cupcakes I made for my Mum and wanted to share them.

The top layer were buttercake with raspberry Jam filling and the sweetest pink icing I have ever made in my life, topped with pink sugar crystals, sugar flowers and sprinkles.

The middle layer were also buttercake with raspberry filling, but these were iced with fondant. I stamped the top pieces of fondant using one of my scrapbooking stamps. This was the first time I had used fondant, I definitely need more practice.

The last ones were my favourite. Chocolate mudcake with whole raspberries and chocolate frosting, yum. (The same ones that my Mum and BFF made for my wedding.) My niece Ava was eating one on the Mother's Day weekend and was in the middle of telling me how yummy it was when she spat an entire mouthful out onto the floor. I asked her what was wrong and she said 'berries' with the same disdain that I generally keep for brussel sprouts or mushrooms!

Both recipes are from the Women's Weekly Cupcake book.
