Jubilee Union Jack cake and red, white and blue cupcakes

Just a quick post to share with you the Jubilee cakes I've just finished decorating (it's 23:51 on Thursday night when I'm writing this). We're having a Jubilee celebration at work tomorrow, so I decided to get a bit creative in the kitchen as I do really like baking.


I'm pooped now so I'm going to fall into bed - sorry for the lack of words!  If you'd like the recipe for the large cake, it's just the same as the one I posted here but replace the lemon with vanilla and add some blackcurrant or strawberry jam in the middle.  Let me know if you're interested in my cupcake recipe and I can post it when I'm closer to wide awake :)

Does the large cake look anything like a Union Jack to you?  I must admit I struggled with it and a few blueberries were squashed in temper!  I think I'll have to claim artistic licence on this one.
