Hi Katrina
The cupcakes were indeed delicious but expensive and fiddly to make. Each cupcake had a Lindt ball inside which made the fondant bit. The strawberries had to be roasted and then pureed and cooled first to make the icing. I ended up making the icing on Sunday evening and just storing it in a piping bag in the fridge. The next night I got the piping bag out and let the icing come to room temperature while I made the cupcakes. I didn’t bother making the toffee to coat the strawberries for the decoration – I just cut strawberries up and placed them in the piped icing. Looked good and tasted very yummy – but as I said – fiddly and expensive – not so good for us time poor and cash strapped mums – but very nice for a special occasion.
