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:

Amazing! I love those pink strawberries! : )
I’m new at this fondant decoration and I found your page amazing source for me to learn and practice myself (I do believe in self-taught) I wasnt successful at making gum paste last time,it was a bit dried and I didn’t have enough tools to work on, so I just ordered a few but still a bit lost at first as I dont know what to do and have no idea what to make, and google brought you to me :). Thank you for being such a wonderful inspiration for me and also thank you for the terrific job.
Hi, where can I buy gum paste? I love baking so I would love to try to make some nice decorations…thanks. Andrea
You can buy gum past ready made at most cake decorating stores. You can also buy a powder mixture or making it yourself. I like the gum paste recipe from Nicholas Lodge https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAmDI3iQMbc
These cupcakes look beautiful but these strawberriesare so adorable! You’re a kitchen genius! 😉
Your work is amazing!
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.
These are so beautiful I wouldn’t want to eat them! Thanks so much for your recipes and your time.
So lovely! And can I ask where you’ve got your baking cups from? That colour …
I got the cups from the UK but I must say that there are not good. I have used double cups :-/
