Royal British Legion poppy cupcakes

To mark the Kent Poppy Launch in association with The Royal British Legion, I was commissioned to make lemon and poppyseed cupcakes each topped with an edible poppy. The Legion are also celebrating its 90th anniversary along with one of the veterans attending the event, so I made 90 cupcakes which were presented as a number 90 in the middle of the buffet table. The Royal British Legion do amazing work safeguarding the welfare, interests and memory of those who are serving or who have served in the Armed Forces. Although Remembrance Sunday has passed for this year, it is not too late to make a donation to the Poppy Appeal.

A few cupcakes had been eaten before the photo was taken!


  1. This is a great idea also for ANZAC day (remembrance day celebrated in NZ and Australia on April 25) We also use poppies here.

    It looks great, even with some cupcakes missing!


    1. I have only just worked out that replying shouldn't involve starting a new comment. I'm an idiot and a luddite, but I always reply (see below). I've just been doing it wrong :(
