It’s Mother’s Day today! Or at least it is if you are in the UK. I’m always confused in Hong Kong as to which day to celebrate it on, the US or the UK date?
Anyway, in honour of (UK) Mother’s Day, I made these pretty pastel pink Carnation Cupcakes. They were for a friend’s mother who kindly cooked us all a huge feast for lunch today.
The cupcakes are made of vanilla sponge, but filled with freshly-made strawberry compote. Yummy. They were then iced with a silky smooth swiss meringue buttercream to create a frilled carnation on top. Aren’t they pretty?
These cupcakes would also be perfect for a baby shower or a special afternoon tea party.
