Blackberry Swirl Cupcakes

As promised... the recipe for the beautiful Blackberry Swirl Cupcakes I made for a friend to serve at a purple themed dinner.

Makes 36 cupcakes


36 Devil's Food cupcakes - recipe here
1 batch cream cheese frosting - recipe here
1 jar blackberry jam
Purple food colouring, optional
Blackberries for garnish


Prepare the Devil's Food cupcakes as per the recipe and allow to cool completely.

Prepare the cream cheese frosting as per the recipe but add a small amount of purple food colouring at the same time as the vanilla extract.

Using a small knife, cut a cone out of the center of each cupcake. Fill the hole with blackberry jam - make sure it is relatively level with the top of the cupcake - do not under or over fill.

Using a pastry bag fitted with a star tip, smear a spoonful of blackberry jam on the side of the bag, tyring to keep it confined to a tight line. Fill the pastry bag with the prepared frosting, trying not to disturb the jam too much. Frost the cupcakes in a swirl pattern - the jam will come out in random streaks in the frosting.

Garnish with blackberries if desired.
