Gluten free raspberry & cream cupcakes

Dr Oetker recently sent me some pretty wafer butterflies, which enable bakers of all abilities to instantly make simple cupcakes and desserts more colourful and beautiful. With guests due round for afternoon tea on Saturday I decided on Saturday morning to quickly rustle up some raspberry and cream cupcakes in Jane Means pretty striped cupcake cups and adorn them with the pretty wafer butterflies.

Gluten Free

13 Cupcakes

Method

Raspberry cupcakes

  1. Preheat oven to 160-180 deg C

  2. Place baking cups on a baking tray

  3. Beat flour, butter, milk, eggs, vanilla extract and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until the mixture turns a pale colour

  4. Divide mixture between cases

  5. Push one frozen raspberry in to each batter filled case

  6. Bake for between 25-30 minutes until cakes bounce back when lightly pressed

  7. Place cakes on wire rack to cool

Whipped cream frosting

  1. In a cold basin gently whisk the double cream and vanilla extract until it thickens.

  2. You must start slowly, increasing the strength carefully, to avoid your cream becoming buttery or curdling.

  3. Sprinkle icing sugar over whipped cream.

  4. Whip for roughly another 30 seconds or so to soft peaks form, or keep going to firm peaks if you want to pipe it.

  5. It is now ready to use, if not using immediately, cover and refrigerate.

To decorate

  1. Fill piping bag fitted with a star nozzle

  2. Pipe a swirl of whipped cream frosting on top of the cakes

  3. Adorn each cake with a wafer butterfly
