Parkin Cupcakes with Toffee Buttercream

Parkin Cupcakes with Toffee Buttercream

Something about the savory hint in toffee makes it the perfect flavor for cooler weather, especially snuggled up in front of a warm fire. Since these yummy cupcakes are made with parkin, a sticky, moist cake at its best when it is a few days old, they’re the perfect treats to make ahead and warm up for snuggle time. Whip them up a few days before you plan to eat them, then ice them with wonderful toffee and buttercream and enjoy their perfect flavor with some much deserved relaxation.

Kaleidoscope Cupcakes


Kaleidoscope cupcakes are sweet little colorful treats with an added measure of fun. To achieve this multihued masterpiece the trick is to color the cupcake batter separately. Partially fill the cupcake wrappers and then add the colored batters in whatever design you choose. To finish off the adorable edibles, instead of icing or frosting on top which would hide these cuties, the cakes are split and the frosting is stuck in the middle. Picture perfect!
