Preparation and Usage

  • You will need:

    1 medium egg; 45ml (3 tbsp.) soya alternative to milk, 90g softened dairy free spread (alternatively, use unsalted butter or margarine instead of the dairy free spread); piping bag.


    Method: Oven

    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 160°C Fan/ 350°F/ Gas 4 and line a cupcake tray with your cases.

    2. Empty the contents of cupcake sachet into a bowl and add the egg, soya alternative to milk and 30g dairy free spread. Mix with an electric mixer for 1-2 minutes until smooth.

    3. Pour the mixture equally accross the cupcake cases and place in the centre of the pre-heated oven. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden.You'll know they're ready if you insert a skewer and it comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before placing on a wire rack.

    4. Once the cupcakes have cooled empty the frosting mixes into 2 seperate bowls and mix each with 30g dairy free spread. Using a piping bag add each of the icing mixes side by side in the bag and pipe onto the cupcakes to create a dual swirl effect.

    5. Decorate with the waferettes and serve.

Amazing cakes! Shocked more people don’t love them

5 stars

I am really shocked to see bad reviews for these cakes. So shocked I felt the need to do my own review because I love them! I am gluten & lactose intolerant and can never normally find cakes that are both so I bought these on the off chance during a shop & I am now onto my 4th box! I have even invested in a piping bag so I can ice them properly rather than just chucking it on top! The cakes are super soft & fluffy and the icing is lovely & sweet - not dry or egg tasting as others have said below. You put your own egg in so perhaps they used an egg too big? I know how hard it is for those of us with allergies/intolerances to find nice treats to eat; please don’t let these other reviews put you off, they taste so good! I always follow the instructions to the letter so make sure that you follow them when making the cakes & you’ll be fine!

Not nice

1 stars

Went in the bin. Tasted so eggy and I’ve had stomach ache afterwards after forcing myself to eat 1.

Not recommended

2 stars

We followed the recipe and the cakes came out hard. Not fluffy at all. Not a nice taste either. I make gluten free cakes alot and these really put me off. No flavour! Also there was literally just enough if not enough for 6 cupcakes. The icing tasted nice. Thank god or these would have gone in the bin. Wouldn't use again or recommend. Hugely disappointed

My daughter loved making these and I actually had

5 stars

My daughter loved making these and I actually had to double check they were gluten free - tasted great 😋

Don't upset your tastebuds with this kit

1 stars

I had high hopes for this cake, but it tastes AWFUL. This product is a waste of money. The cupcake itself is so eggy in taste and the frosting just tastes of butter. Tesco, did you even taste test this?
