After an on-again, off-again kind of bank holiday, weather wise, I think the office will need cheering up as we get back to work tomorrow. Hence: cupcakes.
Recipe (for 12 buns): Victoria sponge mix (cream 6oz butter or margarine with 60z caster sugar, beat in three eggs, then fold in 6oz self raising flour, and bake for 20 mins at 180 F). Raspberry jam (4oz raspberries, boiled to set point with 4oz sugar and a slug of lemon juice – or :0) casssis). Vanilla butter cream (1oz margarine or butter, 4oz icing sugar and one teaspoon vanilla essence). Traditional, but fun, in their lollipop coloured cases.
