Try this recipe for pawprint cupcakes - inspired by Gromit himself and great for parties!

This recipe was adapted from "Wallace and Gromit: Cracking Celebration Cakes" by Debbie Brown. If you’d like to try more projects from this book, it is available to buy online at or call Squires Kitchen on 0845 22 55 67 1/2

12-hole bun tin

115g (4oz) Unsalted butter, softened
115g (4oz) Caster/superfine sugar
2 large eggs
115g (4oz) Self-raising flour
60g (2oz) Plain/ all-purpose flour

For Decoration
15-30ml (1-2tbsp) apricot jam
Edible glue or small amount of icing (combination of icing sugar and water)
Sugar paste per cake: 15g (1/2oz) white and 5g (just under 1/4oz) coloured for each cake
Note: Sugarpaste is sometimes called rolled fondant and is available through any good supermarket or cake decorating outlets.

1. Preheat the oven to 150°/325°F/Gas Mark 3
2. Grease your tin with margarine
3. Sift both types of flour into a bowl together
4. Soften the butter and mix together with the sugar – beat until pale and fluffy
5. Add 1 egg and 1 spoon of flour to the mixture, beat well and then repeat until both eggs have been mixed in
6. Using a spatula, fold in the remaining flour
7. Spoon the mixture into your bake ware and place into the centre of the oven for 20-30 minutes.
8. Once cooked, leave to cool and then turn onto a wire rack to cool completely, ready for decorating.

1. Brush the tops of your cakes with a small amount of apricot jam
2. Roll out the white sugar paste and cut out circles to cover the top of each cake (you may want to use a round cutter for this) Stick in the centre of the cake and smooth down.
3. For the paw prints, roll out the paste as thinly as possible and cut out 1 large heel circle and 3 mini circles for the toes.
4. Stick down with the edible glue (or small amount of icing) and smooth the surface.
5. Eat and enjoy!
