Us Brits proudly stand behind the fairy cake. But cupcakes were definitely born in the USA. So to celebrate American Independence Day this week, I created these peanut butter and jelly cupcakes, in honour of the all-American sandwich, which the nation has grown up on.
Vanilla cupcakes with a strawberry jam centre, topped with peanut butter frosting.
The decoration was simple, red white and blue lettering. The cupcakes didn’t stay around for long. One yank and they were gone!
We shared them with our American chums and I got the thumbs up for flavour.
Gimme a U, gimme an S, gimme an A…
