  • 1 packet cupcake mix
  • 150mL thick cream
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • Icing sugar


Follow packet directions for cupcakes.

When cupcakes are cool, use a small serrated knife to cut a circle out of the middle of each cupcake. Mix the raspberries into the cream, crushing the raspberries so that the mixture takes on a lovely pink colour.

Either drizzle the raspberry cream over the top, or spoon the raspberry mixture into the cupcakes, top with the circle of cake and dust with icing sugar.


  • Can be made into butterfly cakes. To do this, cut the circle of cake into halves and decorate each side of the raspberry cream with wings.
  • These cupcakes can be prepared ahead of time, but look their best if the filling is added just before serving.
