Valentine’s day is fast approaching, and I am delighted to share these pretty pink Eton Mess flavoured cupcakes that I have made for Jelly Belly. Pop over to Bean World for the recipe.
For some Valentine’s present ideas have a peak at my food gift guide. And if you love cupcakes, then you need to try my dark and stormy cupcakes!
This is a commissioned recipe for Jelly Belly – Recipe, styling and photography are my own.
They’re super duper cute! Love the idea! I forgot how easy and delicious are muffins and cupcakes. It’s time to make some of my own :)
Thanks Sylvia. I was rather pleased with them!
Very pretty, perfect for valentines day. GG
Absolutely gorgeous and I love the idea of using Mascarpone for the frosting with jelly beans to decorate. Beautiful styling and photography, too.
I love Mascarpone frosting, so delicious and much lighter then buttercream. I was rather pleased with the photos and styling. It somehow just all came together easily for once.

So pretty, they’re like speckled eggs – and I bought a birthday card in that same paper bag on Saturday!
Katie bought a card when I was with her. I snatched the bag from her with indecent haste!

They look so pretty. I love homemade cupcakes and this looks perfect for Valentines day.
Thank you Tina.
They are very pretty Helen, so dainty too. Mascarpone makes a great topping I find.
Thank you – I should have made bite sized ones too!
They look so pretty and delicate. I often use marscapone and philly in my icings, I don’t like pure buttercream it can be too sweet!
I agree Heidi. Although buttercream lasts longer our of the fridge than a soft cheese based forsting.
Such cute cupcakes!
Thank you Janie.
lmao, ok you are forgiven for doing icky valentines stuff on the basis that you got engaged recently AND that this is a sponsored post from the lovely jelly beans people. I think now I’ll go back to putting my head under the pillow till after the 14th (or writing about vinegar for the next 7 days)
These fall firmly into the commissioned work category Fiona! I am very pleased with them however. I did get a press release about a Valentine’s vinegar however.

Very pretty. Very pink!! your mascarpone frosting here looks divine. I have recently discovered toasted marshmallow buttercream. It is also fab though not tried it as a topping yet only a filling. the pictures look fab Helen.
Thank you Nazima, will try the toasted marshmallow buttercream. sounds divine!!
I agree and think Mascarpone is so much nicer and I have just used some in a lime cheesecake filling. It is silkier, and your toppings are just perfect.
Thanks Laura. So delicious.
Nice idea Helen and a very pretty treat.

Gosh these are too cute. I love the summery flavours of Eaton Mess, and to have it in cupcake form is beyond fab.
Happy Valentines day daaaaaahling.

Just seeing these now Helen. These look fantastic – I’m a sucker for anything Eton Mess related, ever since trying it for the first time a couple years ago. They look stunning as well!
Thank you Andrea, hugely appreciated!
