Eton Mess cupcakes

Eton Mess Cupcakes-

Recently a neighbour brought round some homegrown raspberries and strawberries, of course all handpicked strawberries aren't perfect and some needed surgery and a good wash. Anyway, I decided to make Eton mess cupcakes.

Cupcakes- makes 12

4oz margarine
4oz caster sugar
2 eggs
4oz self raising flour

-combine margarine and sugar until creamy
-add each egg individually and mix with a pinch of flour to prevent curdling
-add remaining flour and mix
-spoon into cupcake cases
-bake in a pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes at 180c

Then I made a regular vanilla buttercream

8oz icing sugar
4oz butter
splash of milk

-combine and add milk to bind
-pipe or spread onto cupcakes

I then added broken meringue pieces, strawberry pieces and raspberries.
Of course you could serve them like this but I decided they weren't messy enough!
I then took a couple of handfuls of fruit and blitzed them, I passed it through a sieve to get rid of seeds and added a little icing sugar to thicken and sweeten. Then I simply drizzled the cupcakes with the compote I had made and put the rest in the freezer!

And there we have it, yummy! Let me know if you give them a go.
