Sophie's Eton Mess Cupcakes

Thermos Taste for Adventure

For the Queen's Platinum Jubilee I wanted to create a classic British dessert as a cupcake! My family and friends loved them at our jubilee party!

Serves 4
5 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook


  1. Preheat oven to 180° fan
  2. Cream together the butter and caster sugar, once light and fluffy, add the eggs and self raising flour in parts.
  3. Add vanilla essence and bake for roughly 20 minutes, they should be golden brown and the sponge should spring back.
  4. Whilst cooling, using an electric whisk and whisk the unsalted butter and icing sugar together until pale and creamy. If the icing is too thick add a little milk.
  5. Once the cakes are cooled, I use an apple corer to take a little section out of each cake and fill with jam.
  6. With a piping nozzle, swirl a little icing on to each cake and top with a meringue and half a strawberry.
  7. Enjoy!
