Mother's Day Letter Cupcakes


These cute Mother's Day cupcakes let you show her how much you care. Cut out letters from fondant icing, write a message with an icing pen, or just sprinkle your mum's preferred topping all over. We used purple here, but go ahead and use Mum's favourite colour - or a combination of different ones - and just make more if you want to 'write' a longer message.

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes


Here's a sweet little idea that's ideal for a real springtime treat on Mother's Day. This cupcake recipe has a hidden dollop of lemon curd to give the cupcakes a lovely lemony flavour as an extra surprise. Colour some additional icing to make small cut-out decorations like we have here, use sprinkles instead or write a message with icing pens if you prefer.

Eton Mess Cupcakes


These cupcakes will soon get Eton-up on Mother's Day. They're great if you Mum has a sweet tooth to match her sweet nature, and bring together two of our favourite treats. For a less sweet but still delicious topping, replace the buttercream with fresh whipped cream. If the weather's nice, take them out for the first picnic of the year.
