Gently heat the Pimm’s with the sugar in a small saucepan until the sugar has dissolved, bring to the boil and then let it simmer for 5-7 minutes until it is thick and syrupy.

Skewer each cupcake several times and brush with the Pimm’s syrup

Allow to cool completely before decorating.

Pipe the buttercream on top of the cupcakes and then decorate each cupcake with half a strawberry, a piece of orange and a mint leaf.

Hi Deb, I made the Pimm's cakes with Madeira mix that you put on the Wright's Baking Facebook page. They were very popular with my guests especially when eaten with a jug of Pimms! Thanks
