Anyway, so yes, rant over. So all those weeks ago I blogged about the uber cute Mini-Vicki-Union-Jackies and left y'all on tenterhooks* about what I did with the cupcake sized version....
We were going to my neighbours** for BBQ, Booze and Baked Goods (ok, that wasn't an actual theme but well I always bring baked goods whenever possible!). It was still the Jubilee weekend and it still seemed appropriate to be all patriotic so I decided to bring the Cupcake-Vicki-Jackies. Equally cute but a LOT less time consuming than their miniature counterparts, without further ado, I present to you, Cupcake-Vicki-Jackies:
6. So taking the larger cupcake sized sponges and starting at (and replacing) step 6 of the Mini-Vicki-Union-Jackies, spoon the whipped cream into a piping bag (or plastic sandwich bag with the corner cut) and squeeze blobs of cream all over the top (or swirls or spread it, your call).
7. Take a whole strawberry, cut lengthwise into quarters then finely slice each quarter. Decorate the cakes with four strawberry slices (fat end in the centre at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions), a blob of cream in the centre and finish with a blueberry.
DONE! Seriously, that's it! Super simple and pretty tasty.
