Blossoming Cupcakes

Makes: 12 cupcakes/2 flowers | Prep time: 15 mins | Bake time: 20 mins Ingredients:

  • Dr. Oetker Cupcake Cases
  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 125g caster sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1tspDr. Oetker Madagascan Vanilla Extract
  • 100g self raising flour
  • 75g ground almonds
  • 75ml milk
  • 2tsp of raspberry or apricot jam
  • 1 pack of Dr. Oetker Regal-Ice Ready To Roll Icing Coloured
  • Dr. Oetker Chocolatey Strands


  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Mix the butter, a pinch of salt and sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy
  2. Beat in eggs one at a time and add Vanilla Extract. Gently fold in the flour & ground almonds, add the milk and fill 12 cupcake cases with the finished mixture
  3. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, take them out and leave until they’re too cool for school. Warm jam in the microwave for 10 – 20 seconds, then spread on top of cupcakes
  4. Roll Icing to the thickness of a £1 coin. Use 100g of yellow, 100g of red plus 40g of black. Use a cutter to make icing discs (you need 5 yellow, 5 red and 2 black) and arrange on top of cupcakes
  5. Wipe black cupcakes with a damp cloth and sprinkle Chocolatey Strands on top. Arrange your cupcakes with a black one in the middle, surrounded by five coloured ones
  6. Roll most of the green Icing, creating stalks for your flowers. Then roll out the remaining icing to create leaves, arranging them on either side of your stalks.
