Makes 12 cupcakes


For The Cupcakes

 150g self-raising flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

15g cornflour

zest of 1 orange

175g unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

175g caster sugar

3 medium eggs, lightly beaten

100g strawberries, hulled and roughly chopped

For the Pimm’s Buttercream

275g unsalted butter, softened

50ml semi-skimmed milk

2 tbsp Pimm’s

350g icing sugar

To Decorate

Mint leaves

3  slices of orange, cut into quarters

3 strawberries,  sliced

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Line a 12 hole cupcake tray with cupcake cases.

2. In a large bowl sieve the flour, baking powder and cornflour. Stir in the orange zest.

3. In a seperate bowl add the butter and caster sugar, whisk together with an electric whisk until light and fluffy.

4. Divide the mixture evenly between the cupcakes cases. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

5. Whilst the cupcakes are baking, make the syrup. In a medium size saucepan gently heat the Pimm’s with sugar stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat and let it bubble for around 5-7 minutes until thick and syrupy. Pour into a small jug.

6. As soon as the cupcakes are ready, prick the tops a few times with a cocktail stick and then brush each cupcake with the Pimm’s syrup. Leave to cool in the tray for ten minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

7. Make the buttercream, in a medium size bowl add the butter, milk and Pimm’s and with an electric whisk together until smooth and thick. Transfer into a piping bag fitted with a 1 cm star nozzle. 

8. Generously pipe each cupcake with the icing, then decorate with slices of strawberries, orange slices and mint leaves.
