Sour Cherry

Blossoms Syrup Cupcake (any flavours)

Here comes the summer... Let's have some cupcakes topped with Grenadine icing.. (you can use any of the syrups). 

For all the cake makers out there, my friend Denise Godbolt has created the perfect balanced recipe for flavoured icing. The measurements are perfect for 30 cupcakes and all flavours in the Blossoms range work wonderfully.

Here it is:

  • 200 gr Blossoms grenadine syrup
  • 250 gr Unsalted Butter
  • 875 gr Icing Sugar

Beat the soft butter and the sugar together. Add the syrup and Voila!
