Ingredients – Make 24 Cupcakes

For the icing

  • 200g Butter
  • 500g Icing Sugar
  • 200g Cream Cheese
  • 4 Tbsp Champagne (cava or prosecco is also fine)
  • Red Food Colouring

For the cupcakes

  • 250g Butter
  • 350g Caster Sugar
  • 4 Large Free Range Eggs
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 350g Self Raising Flour, (sifted)
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 12 Tsp Strawberry Jam
  • Pearl or Silver Edible Small Ball Beads (to decorate) 
  1. Let’s make the icing first as it needs time to set. Place the butter and icing sugar in a large bowl and beat together until pale and fluffy.
  2. Add the cream cheese a little at a time to the icing. Beat each time until smooth. Add the champagne and a few drops of the red food colouring. Mix to a pale pink. Chill in the fridge until set.
  3. Heat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, 160°C fan. Line 2 x 12-hole muffin trays with paper cases. Place the butter and sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.
  4. Fold through the vanilla essence then the flour and salt. Divide mixture among the cases then top each with 1⁄2 tsp jam. Bake for 15-20 minutes until risen and golden. Cool for a few minutes in their tins then transfer to a wire rack.
  5. Once the cakes are complete, spoon the icing into a piping bag fitted with a small nozzle. Pipe onto each cupcake and top with edible pearl or silver balls.
