Plum Powder Cupcakes

Pink Plum Cupcakes

 The other day in Titirangi I bought something new, a plum powder! I was very keen to try it and so I made some vanilla cupcakes and added some to the mixture. I also made a soft royal icing topping with about 1 tsp of plum powder. In baking I would say that you possibly need quite a bit to make a difference in colour and taste, but for icing it works really well, giving off a mild colour, smell and taste. I am keen to try more Fresh As flavours now! And of course the flowers are from my garden :-).

  1. Very interesting! I think that powder could be made out of dehydrated plums. I saw on Pinterest a sort of strawberry sugar made out of dried strawberries powdered and added to organic cane sugar. Have you ever tried drying your own fruit?
