Preparation Time 60 minutes
Makes 50


Easy butter cake divided between 36 cupcakes (see related recipes)
1 quantity simple glace icing (see related recipes)
Pink liquid food colouring (Queen brand)
Blue liquid food colouring (Queen brand)
1 quantity (about 50) easy vanilla butter cupcakes
60g Fizzers Lollies (Swizzles Matlow brand)
3-5 pastel-coloured wired silk butterflies (from craft stores)


Divide the icing into thirds. Add 12-15 drops of pink colouring to 1 portion, 5-6 drops of blue colouring to 1 portion, then 12-14 drops pink colouring and 2-4 drops blue colouring to last portion to make purple. Mix each well.

Spread pink icing over 4 cupcakes. Top each with 5 pink lollies in a circular pattern, with a different colour in the centre, and press gently into icing. Repeat with remaining cupcakes, blue icing, purple icing and lollies to make 4 blue-iced cupcakes and 4 purple-iced cupcakes. (You will have 12 flower-patterned cupcakes in total.) Set aside for 1 hour or until set.

Meanwhile, spread pink icing over 12 more cupcakes, blue over the next 12 and purple over remaining cupcakes. Set aside for 1 hour or until set.

To assemble, arrange 10 plain-iced cupcakes (mixing pink, blue and purple) in a circle on a cake stand. Top with 7 plain-iced cupcakes. Continue to layer, with 4 plain-iced cupcakes in the third layer and 2 in fourth layer.

Arrange the remaining plain-iced cupcakes, icing facing outwards, on the outside of the cupcake stack and randomly place the flower-patterned cupcakes in between. Position the butterflies so they ‘fly’ above the cupcakes.


For more control over the jawaban colour of the icing, use skewers to add food colours, drop by drop.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
