Fairy Cupcakes

Union Jack cupcakes red and blue easy coronation party food

To Make you will Need:

  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 200g golden caster sugar
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Whisk
  • Cupcake cases
  • Baking tray
  • Tub of Mr Kipling Space Vanilla Icing
  • Freezer Bag or piping bag
  • Icing Sugar and sieve


To Make:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C / 160°C fan / gas mark 4.
  2. Place your cupcake cases into your baking tray.
  3. Put the butter and sugar into large bowl and whisk them until it becomes fluffy and turn a lighter yellow colour.
  4. Add in the eggs one at a time, beating the mixture well after you add each egg.
  5. Add in the vanilla extract and mix.
  6. Gently fold in the flour and add the milk.
  7. Stir just enough that it makes a smooth batter that drops off your spoon.
  8. Add red food colouring into the batter and mix so its all coloured. Scoop the cake batter into the cupcake cases and place into the oven.
  9. Cook for 20 – 25 mins. You can check if cooked by pushing a skewer into the cake, if it comes out clean, they are cooked.
  10. Place on wire cooling rack for them to cool down. Once the cakes have cooled cut the sponge flush to the top of the cupcake case. With what you have cut off the top then cut that into halves.
  11. If you want to spend a bit more time and make your own buttercream icing you can, but we wanted to save a bit of time so used the Mr Kipling pre-made blue icing. If you have a piping bag perfect, if not a freezer bag will also work. Just scoop the icing into the bag, push down into the corner and cut the end of the bag off to make a hole. Pipe the icing onto the top of the cakes, placing the two halves of the sponge you cut earlier on top of the icing to look like butterfly wings.
  12. To finish off sieve some icing sugar onto them.


Party Pretzels

To Make you will Need:

  • Pretzels
  • White chocolate
  • Red, white and blue sprinkles
  • Cooling wire rack


To Make:

  1. These are very easily to make. Simply melt the white chocolate for few minutes in the microwave, or in a bowl, over a pan of boiling water.
  2. Dip half the pretzel into the melted chocolate, then dip them into the red, blue and white sprinkles.
  3. We found it easier if you lay them on a cooling wire rack until they dry.


Popping Popcorn

To Make you will Need:

  • Popcorn kernels
  • Caster sugar
  • Olive Oil
  • Red and blue food colouring
  • Saucepan with Lid


To Make:

  1. Quickly heat up a little amount of olive oil in the saucepan.
  2. Then place the popcorn kernels into the pan and place the lid on. As the kernels heat up, they will pop into popcorn. Keep the lid on and shake the pan so none get stuck to the bottom of the pan and burn.
  3. Once all the kernels have popped, divide them into three bowls.
  4. Next you need to mix two coloured sugary liquids. In separate bowls mix some caster sugar with a little water and drop blue food colouring into one mixture and red food colouring into the other mixture.
  5. Once all mixed place popcorn into the bowl and stir with a spoon until the popcorn is all covered in the coloured sugary mixture.
  6. Once dry you can then mix the plain, red and blue popcorn into a larger bowl to place on your party table.

To Make you will Need:

  • 600g Fresh strawberries
  • 2 Tablespoons of icing sugar
  • 600ml double cream
  • 200g Fresh raspberries
  • Handful of blueberries
  • 5 Readymade meringue nests

To Make:

  1. Eton mess is a yummy summer British dessert that is so easy to make.
  2. Wash all the fruit and place 150g of the strawberries into a blender along with ½ tablespoon of icing sugar. Pulse it until it becomes a smooth puree.
  3. With the rest of the strawberries cut them into half or quarters depending on the size of them, you want them to be bite size.
  4. Whip the double cream and the rest of the icing sugar until they form soft peaks.
  5. Then to assemble crumble 4 of the meringues and add them to the cream. Also add into the cream all your strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, fold them in lightly.
  6. Then very briefly stir in the strawberry puree to make swirls into the creams. Spoon the mixture into your serving bowls.
  7. Finally with the last meringues crush it over the top of each bowl and eat immediately.


Deviled Eggs

To Make you will Need:

  • How ever many eggs you want to serve, we found large eggs work best.
  • Red and blue food colouring
  • Mayonnaise
  • Pepper
  • Paprika
  • Saucepan to boil the eggs.

To Make:

  1. These are a colourful twist on your usual delicious finger food.
  2. Hard boil all the eggs as normal in a saucepan. Once boiled, place them into cold water and pop in the fridge, this stops the yellow yolk turning grey.
  3. Once completely cooled, peel the eggs. Get two bowls filled with enough cold water to cover the peeled eggs. Drop a few blue food colourings in one bowl and red into the other. Place the peeled eggs into the bowls and leave for around 10 minutes which will be long enough to dye the outside of the hard-boiled eggs.
  4. Then slice them in half longways. Scoop out the yellow yolk into a bowl and mix it with a bit of mayonnaise, ground black pepper and pinch of paprika.
  5. Mix to a spicy taste that you like, then you can divide the mix into two and drop from food colouring into each yolk.
  6. You then need to scoop the yolk back into the boiled eggs, so if you have a dyed blue outside egg you want to add the red yolk into it and vice versa.


Blue Raspberry Float Drink
