Britain’s official best cupcake baker Kevin Sibley, founder of Mama’s Cupcakes, has created a highly tempting couture cupcake to celebrate the release of the movie Sex and the City 2.
Kevin, National Cupcake Champion 2009, says The Cosmopolitan is the perfect accompaniment to the return of the SATC girls to the big screen on May 27.
"I’m constantly experimenting with new flavours and recipes so the chance to create a cupcake in honour of SJP and her friends was just too good to miss," says Kevin.
Kevin’s Cosmopolitan combines fresh orange juice and cranberries with a generous splash of Cointreau, finished off with a crème fraiche/cream cheese topping and edible glitter.
