Pink Berry Buns

These are definitely buns rather than cupcakes. I’m not totally convinced by this experiment, but it did produce a delicate pink berry flavoured sponge, pretty enough for Mother’s Day. By adding cordial to the icing sugar rather than water the flavour of the buns gets an extra oomph!
