This beautiful and quirky dress from Book of Deer is perfect for baking in and eating in. The lovely novelty print featuring jam jars is as sweet as the jam it's portraying. Wearing this dress, I instantly knew I had to bake something tasty with jam. So I opted for these cute little mini cakes with raspberry jam - they turned out disappearingly tasty. The recipe is for 12 mini cakes, but it can easily be halved.
MINI JAM CAKESINGREDIENTS
- 1 batch of Lemon Cupcakes - recipe here.
- Raspberry Jam
- Whipped cream
Start by making the Lemon Cupcakes. I have previously described in detail how they are made. You can find it right here.
Once the Lemon Cupcakes have cooled, cut off the "muffin top" and then cut the cylinder shape you are left with in two. The muffin tops are scraps (you can eat them :D ), and you should be left with 24 circles.
Place the lower parts of your cut cupcakes on a plate and then spread about two teaspoons of jam onto the base of the mini cakes. Put the second layer onto the mini cakes and then decorate with piped whipped cream and a raspberry on each mini cake.
