For the Cupcakes
200g caster sugar
200g self-raising flour
200g unsalted softened butter
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
4 large eggs
1 fresh mango, cubed

For the Custard
12tbsp custard
4tbsp mango purée

For the Icing
150g unsalted butter
300g icing sugar
2 tbsp mango purée

– Preheat the oven to 180°C / 160°C with a fan. Grease and line a 12-hole cupcake tin.

– Place all the ingredients (except the mango) for the cake in a stand mixer. Whisk for 2 minutes.

– Add the mango and use a spoon to fold it in.

– Distribute the mixture evenly between the cupcake cases. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

– To prepare the custard, mix the custard and mango purée in a bowl. Put it in the fridge to chill.

– To prepare the icing, place the butter in a stand mixer and whisk for 1 minute.

– Gradually add the icing sugar while you continue to whisk.

– Add the mango purée and whisk to combine.

– Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow them to cool completely.

– Use a melon baller to remove the centres of the cupcakes. Fill the holes with 1 tsp of custard.

– Transfer the icing to a piping bag with a star nozzle and pipe this onto each cupcake.

– Decorate with your favourite biscuits. I like to use custard creams!
