150g Sugar and Crumbs KeyLime Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar
150g Gluten Free Self Raising Flour
150g Margarine
3 Eggs
For the Filling
225g Condensed Milk
38ml Lime Juice
ColourSplash Edible Gel Lime
Meringue Topping
250g Sugar and Crumbs Whipping It Up of your choice
70ml Warm ( room temperature) Water


1. Fill your cupcake tin with cake cases of your choice and pre-heat the oven to 140c.

2. Cream the butter and Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar together until light and fluffy.

3. Add the eggs one at a time until they are well combined.

4. Add the flour slowly and mix on a low speed on the mixer or fold in using a spatula or wooden spoon.

5. Divide the mixture between your cupcake cases filling two thirds full.

6. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes until they are firm to the touch and are slightly golden brown.

7. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool for 15 minutes before removing them from the bun tin and placing on a wire cooling rack.

8. To make the filling, mix together the condensed milk and lime juice until well combined then colour with the Coloursplash lime edible food gel.

9. Slice the top of the cupcake off and scoop a teaspoon of cake out of the centre of the bun. Fill will a teaspoon of the condensed milk mixture and replace the top of the bun. Repeat this process on all of your buns.

10. Make the meringue topping by whisking the Sugar and Crumbs Whipping It Up with the 70ml water until the mix has reached stiff peaks in the bowl.

11. Using a 1M Wilton tip in a piping bag fill with the meringue mix and pipe a rose swirl on each of the cakes.

12. You can put the buns back into the oven for 5-10 minutes until the meringue has a golden tint to them or you can use a cooks blowtorch to colour the meringue straight away.

Top Tip 

The Whipping It Up from Sugar and Crumbs is made using Pasteurised egg white  so it is safe to just use the cooks blow torch on the cakes without having to put them in the oven to colour.
