{HRH Birthday} Summer Berry & Vanilla Cream Cupcakes

Hi Girls,

Yesterday was my long term partner birthday. Since school his friends call him HRH (His Royal Highness) due to similarities with prince Williams. Since he is my own prince charming I made his birthday cake into royal theme. He is not a fan of birthday parties, so it was just for us.
He also doesn’t eat icing and home made Chantilly proved a big HIT.

Cupcake ingredients:
110g (4 1/2 oz) unsalted margarine, soften. If you use butter they will rise uneven. 
110g (4 1/2 oz) caster sugar 
110g (4 1/2 oz) self raising flour
2 eggs
1/2 vanilla extract ( Never essence )

1 vanilla pod deseeded ( add just the seeds)
50g ( 2oz) of vanilla sugar  
180ml (6 1/4 oz) double cream

How to make it:
Pre hear the over 180C ( 350C F/ Gas 4). Line the tin with paper cases or grease with butter
Cream the butter and sugar together until pale. Gradually bat the eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla mixing well. Fold the flour. If mixture stiff, use a dash of milk to create a dropping consistency.
Spoon the mixture in the cases and bake for 15-20 mins.
Leave them to cool in a wire rack.

To make the Chantilly, cream the ingredients until the consistency of whipped cream. 
Decorate with summer berries !
