Cup Cakes Filled With Jam

I am sure everybody knows that October is known as Pink October and it is National Breast Cancer Awarness Month.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer Awareness Mont (NBCAM), is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.
As well as providing a platform for breast cancer charities to raise awareness of their work and of the disease, BCAM is also a prime opportunity to remind women to be breast aware for earlier detection.
And in facebook I am in a wonderful food group called Chef at Large and I must admit I love the group and indeed it is a very busy group.
And there is always some event going on there which I try to participate and this week it is Breast Cancer Awarness Day.
So I joined in.
Actually in my mind I had planned to make Macaons. But then cancelled that idea and thought of making these. I am happy i changed my mind as I loved eating them and loved looking at them too.

130 gm soft butter
130 gm sugar ( I used 80 gm)
130 gm flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1 tsp Vanilla essence
1 to 2 tbsp of milk
Any kind of jam, ( I used mixed fruit jam) I didn't measure I just took few tbsp of the jam
Marzipan for decoration ( I used white marzipan and just added pink color)

Preaheat the oven to 180° c.
Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl till they are fluffy.
Add the egg one by one, mixing well after adding each of them.
Add the vanilla essence.
Sieve in the flour and the baking powder to the bowl and fold it carfully and if the bater is thick add the milk, I only had to use 1 tbsp of milk.
Fill each cupcake liner with the mix and bake for 6 to 18 minutes or untill they are done. When you insert a kinfe it should come out clean then youknow it is baked.
Cool in a rack for a while.
In the mean tim heat the jam in the MW don't over heat it, pour the jam into the pipping bag with the nozzel and then you inject the jam into the cupcakes.
I injected in three different places in each cup cake. Next time I think i will use a thicker nozzel.


Decorate as seen in the picture or according to your liking
