Cupcakes decorated with gum paste strawberries

We are eating a lot of delicious strawberries at the moment. So I thought that a little cupcake with strawberries would be in place. A classic vanilla cupcake filled with a little strawberry jam and a fluffy spread of white meringue frosting on top. I used an apple core to remove some of the cupcake before filling with the jam. The sweet pink strawberries and white flowers are made out of gum paste.

You can find a tutorial on how to make the gum paste strawberries and recipes for both meringue frosting and classic vanilla cupcakes here:

    I love these cupcakes. They look so delicious. If you are looking for a good recipe for gumpaste try the Eggwhite gumpaste on www. facebook.com/IcingOnly The Gum Tex is a Wilton product you can buy at most cake decorating stores. It is similar to CMC but they can not be used interchangeably.

      I have not tried GumTex since I have always used CMC. But I will try it next time I go shopping for more supplies.

      I got the cups from the UK but I must say that there are not good. I have used double cups :-/
