Vanilla and Raspberry Treats

Cake table
Last weekend my little sister Georgina turned 21 so we had a family afternoon tea to celebrate and also to say farewell and good luck as she is leaving us to start a new career that requires her to be based in Dubai. I was charged with making some sweet treats, originally I had planned on making cake pops but they were a major fail! So I resorted to a quick fix and made some tried and true meringues but fancied them up by piping them and adding a ½ teaspoon of raspberry essence and a ½ teaspoon of pink food colouring to half the mixture.

The mini cupcakes were made using the Betty Crocker Vanilla Cake Mix, once they were cool I put some raspberry jam in a piping bag and filled the centre of each cupcake with jam and topped them with a pink butter cream frosting (to which I also added a 1/2 teaspoon of raspberry essence) and sprinkles.

The lovely looking cake was delicious and was purchased by my Mum from the City Cake Company in Mt Eden.
