JUBILEE TEA PARTY
Posted on May 31, 2012 by Francesca Lanni
The Queen’s Jubilee is well on its way, I guess it’s hard to miss it here in London. Step outside and you are surrounded by Union Jacks everywhere on everything! To celebrate the event I have decided to to make some “royal” cupcakes and picked an excuse to play around with my favorite ingredients. I used my previous cupcakes recipe topped with cream cheese instead of buttercream and decorated with fresh berries.
Cream Cheese Frosting
- 125g unsalted butter, softened
- 250g cream cheese (likePhiladelphia), softened
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 cups (640g) icing sugar, sifted
Using an electric mixer, beat butter, cream cheese and vanilla for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Gradually add icing sugar, beating until incorporated. Refrigerate for 1 hour. With a spoon or palette knife, spread frosting over tops of cooled cakes then decorate as desired with berries.
Serve and Enjoy!
