Orange Jelly Cupcakes

Recipe and Image from Super Food Ideas

I have never made or tasted something quite like this before. The technique in soaking the cupcake in jelly without making it fall apart is difficult, but achievable. This idea and texture is interesting and tasty. The cupcake essentially falls apart in one's mouth, releasing a wave of orange flavour; something truly sensational. I strongly recommend decorating this cupcake half an hour before serving as it is a food that cannot be stored for many days due to the risk of mold and bacteria. Despite this factor this is a really simple and tasty treat for all to enjoy.

  • 1/2 Basic Muffin recipe, using only 2 eggs (see Gooey Caramel Muffin Post)
  • 85g packet of orange jelly crystals
  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 300ml thickened cream, whipped
  • silver  cachous, to decorate (optional)
Bake the basic muffin recipe in cupcake form. Meanwhile, prepare jelly following packet instructions. Refrigerate for 20 minutes only. Place coconut in a bowl (only a little bit at a time - the jelly wets it). Dip one cupcake in the jelly mixture, to coat. Roll in coconut. Transfer to serving plate. Repeat with rmaining cakes, jelly and coconut. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Cut a small wedge i the topp of each cake. Discard wedge. Spoon cream into holes. Decorate with cachous. Serve.
