* recipe requires 70% fat buttery spread

You will also need:

12 hole cupcake or muffin tin and cases

Step 1 of 5

Preheat the oven to 180°C, (160°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 4.


Step 2 of 5

Put the cupcake ingredients in a bowl and beat (use an electric hand mixer if you have one!) until light and creamy.

Step 3 of 5

Put the cupcake cases into the tin and spoon in the mixture. Bake for about 15-18 minutes until springy. Cool slightly then lift out onto a cooling rack.

For perfectly even cupcakes use an ice cream scoop to put the mixture into the cases.

Step 4 of 5

Chop the strawberries into a small dice and mix with the strawberry jam. Once the cakes are cool use a sharp knife or the tip of a piping nozzle to cut a small hole in the centre of the cakes.  Drop a spoonful of the strawberry mixture into the hole and replace the sponge top.

Step 5 of 5

Make the icing: Put the icing sugar, buttery baking spread and vanilla into a large bowl.  Mix the condensed milk and food colouring together and add to the ingredients in the bowl.  Whisk with an electric hand mixer, slowly at first, to make a thick icing. Spread or pipe onto the cakes, topping with heart shaped sprinkles or other decoration as you like!
