    12 Cupcakes


for the cupcakes

  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 300ml cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries

for the icing/ganache

  • 200ml pure cream (35% fat)
  • 420g white chocolate, finely chopped.

You'll Need

  • Multix Foil Large Patty pans
  • Multix Piping bags


  1. For the cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Beat the eggs and sugar together until pale and thick, add the cream and vanilla and mix with a wooden spoon until well combined. Sift in the flour and fold into the creamy mix then add the raspberries, ensuring they are incorporated evenly throughout the batter. Line a 12 hole patty tin with Multix patty pans and carefully spoon the cake batter into the pans. Cook for around 35 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the cakes. Cool on a wire rack until completely cold, then they are ready to ice with the white chocolate ganache.
  2. For the icing/ganache: Place the chopped white chocolate into a medium size microwave safe mixing bowl.  Set aside while you heat the cream. Heat the cream in a small saucepan until just boiling. Pour the cream over the chocolate and leave to stand for two minutes. This will give the chocolate time to soften. Stir the ganache until smooth. If all the white chocolate has not melted then place the bowl in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds. Remove and stir until smooth. Leave the white chocolate ganache to cool until it reaches the desired consistency, then whip with electric beaters until it is light and fluffy. Fill a Multix Piping Bag fitted with the large star nozzle, with the ganache, and pipe onto the top of the cold cupcakes. Top with a fresh raspberry, or a raspberry lolly.
