I meant to post these to coincide with Valentine’s day, but I forgot. Or I’m just not very romantic.
These are cupcakes that I made for last week’s Sunday Driver gig in Cambridge, and for a photoshoot with the Shadow Orchestra, which coincided with drummer Dave’s birthday. The pics from the shoot look great – I’ll post a few up soon.
They’re plain old vanilla cupcakes (recipe from Eat Me), cored and filled with strawberry jam, and iced with vanilla buttercream (recipe from the Primrose Bakery). I decorated the ones for the gig with a few sprinkles and some Love Heart sweets, as we had a Valentine theme. I can report that they were totally yummy.
To fill them, I used an apple corer to cut out a hole in each cake, then squirted in the jam using a plastic icing bag with a large hole cut in the end.
