Throwing an Olympic party to kick off London 2012? Don’t forget these Olympic torch cupcakes from Vicky over at Stasty!

The lemon cupcakes are baked into a crispy ice cream cone, to resemble a torch. The cupcake is topped with lemon butter icing and adorned with red and orange shards of caramelised sugar. The tangy lemon is a great match for the hard sweet caramel and crispy cone. These cakes look pretty striking too and are the perfect snack to have while watching the opening ceremony.

I absolutely love the sugar shard flame. If you do too, head over to Stasty to see the full recipe and how-to!
