I watched the Royal Wedding on TV with Mum today, so I made a few cupcakes to celebrate. To keep things simple, I baked vanilla cake in red, silver and blue cases then topped them with vanilla buttercream. I already had plenty of red glittery sugarpaste hearts that I’d made up around Valentine’s Day last year (sugarpaste keeps well if you store it in an airtight container), which saved me from making any new decorations.

But….I felt the urge to make them a little bit more Red, White and Blue, without having to go to much trouble, so I quickly turned one of them into a mini Union Jack using some blue and white fondant leftover from a batch of cupcakes several months ago. Hey presto, instant “British” cupcakes :) The cakes were filled with an assortment of jams from my fridge – I only had a teensy bit left in the bottom of each jar, so some are filled with apricot jam, some strawberry, some raspberry  and some lemon curd.
