Passionfruit Martini Cupcakes!
Easy and delicious passionfruit martini cupcakes with a vodka soaked passion fruit curd stuffed cupcake, vodka buttercream frosting, passion fruit and prosecco!
Cooling & Decorating:
self raising flour
(room temp)(not stork)
(cut into quarters)
Preheat the oven to 180ºc/160ºfan and prep 12 muffin size cupcake cases or baking cups.
Beat the unsalted butter/stork with the caster sugar until light and fluffy.
Combine the eggs and self-raising flour with the butter/sugar mix until well combined. It won’t take too long to mix!
Spoon the mix into the cupcake cases evenly and bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes or until a skewer poked into one of the cakes comes out clean and they are springy to touch.
Once out of the oven, drizzle over 1tbsp of vodka per cupcake - let the cupcakes cool fully.
Once cooled, core out the middle of each cupcake and add a spoonful of passionfruit curd.
Beat the unsalted butter with an electric mixer for a couple of minutes to loosen it – gradually beat in the icing sugar until well combined.
Add the vodka to the buttercream one spoonful at a time, beating well each time. This buttercream can be naturally a bit softer so it's important to use block unsalted butter and not a spread.
Pipe the buttercream onto the cupcakes in swirls - I used a 2d closed star piping tip.
I sprinkled some edible gold glitter onto the cupcakes, and then inserted a pipette with some prosecco in.
I then added a quarter of a passionfruit per cupcake, and part of a gold straw for looks.
These cupcakes will last for 3+ days at room temp
You can freeze these cupcakes for 3+ months
The vodka is optional - you can just leave it out.
You can swap the vodka for passionfruit liqueur if you want, or more prosecco.

(if you want alcohol free, you can use passionfruit juice or something similar!)

I also coloured my frosting slightly with a dab of orange and yellow food colouring, but this is entirely optional.
