  6. Sara says:

    I'm not sure why but whenever I try one of your recipes it never makes 12 cupcakes. its usually around 7-8. maybe we have larger cupcake tins and cases in Australia? They're always delicious though and these are no exception! 😘

    I followed your recipe and instructions for these cupcakes. I made 2 batches. They were absolutely the best… and you are absolutely the best!! I topped the wonderful cherry buttercream with the toasted almonds and pastry crumbles…. yummy!! Thank you for being such a great teacher and presenting the info in such a fun way!!! 👍👍❤️

  12. Kristin Cryer says:

    When making some cupcakes you cream your butter and sugar until light and fluffy then add the dry ingredients and sometimes you "dump it all in" at one time. What's the difference? Is there one?

  13. RMK 79 says:

    Made these and they were delicious but didn't think the sponge was almondy enough. Will probably add more almond extract next time. Though like I said they were still lush 🙂

  14. Lucy Henshall says:

    Hi Jemma. Is it possible to adapt the recipient so you have the pie crumb on the bottom? I'd like to make them with just a cute cherry on top and not the crumb but I don't want to leave out the yummy crumb either! Ideas?? 🙂

  15. Ana Catarina Silva says:
