Raspberry rose cupcakes

12 Dr. Oetker white baking cases

115g (4oz) margarine, softened

115g (4oz) caster sugar

2 medium eggs, beaten

115g (4oz) plain flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

65g (3 1/2oz) raspberry jam

For the icing:

100g (3 1/2oz) unsalted butter, softened

190g (6 1/2oz) icing sugar

1 tsp essence of pure rose water

Dr. Oetker sugar butterflies to decorate

Preheat the oven to 190°C/170°C fan oven/375°F/gas 5. Line 12 cupcake tins with white paper cake cases. In a mixing bowl, beat the margarine with the sugar until pale and creamy-light in texture.

Gradually whisk in the eggs, then sift the flour and baking powder. Using a large metal spoon, carefully fold the dry ingredients into the mixture.

Spoon a teaspoon of the mixture into the cake cases, and make a slight indent in the mixture. Spoon a little jam on top and then cover with the remaining cake mixture. Bake on the middle shelf in the oven for 16-18 minutes until risen, lightly golden and just firm to the touch. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

For the icing, place the butter in a bowl and beat until soft. Gradually sift and beat in the icing sugar to make a smooth, creamy icing. Add rose water to taste.

Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a 1cm (1/2inch) star nozzle and pipe a generous peaked swirl on top of each cake. Decorate with sugar butterflies before serving.
