Product recommendation
Suggested variation; to maximise the rose flavour of these cakes, replace the strawberry jam with rose petal jam and decorate with a single fresh rose petal instead of the cake sprinkles.

Preparation steps

1.
Preheat the oven to 190°C (170 fan) | 375°F | gas 5 and line a 12-hole cupcake tin with paper cases.
2.
Combine the flour, sugar, butter, eggs and strawberry jam in a bowl and whisk together for 2 minutes or until smooth.
3.
Divide the mixture between the paper cases, then transfer the tin to the oven and bake for 15 - 20 minutes. Test with a wooden toothpick, if it comes out clean, the cakes are done. Transfer the cakes to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
4.
To make the buttercream, beat the butter with a wooden spoon until light and fluffy then beat in the icing sugar a quarter at a time. Use a whisk to incorporate the rose water and food colouring, then whisk for 2 minutes or until smooth and well whipped.
5.
Spoon the buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle and pipe a swirl on top of each cake. Sprinkle with flower-shaped cake sprinkles.
