Test Recipe Two

Food icon Heinz has teamed up with the award-winning Hummingbird Bakery to celebrate its 150 year anniversary with a range of five cupcakes with a difference.

Pouring a can of classic Heinz Cream of Tomato Soup into the sponge mixture brings plenty of moisture and adds the natural sugars of the tomato, but best of all it gives it the glorious orange sunset colour that we know and love from Heinz Cream of Tomato Soup. Then comes the time to let the vibrant aroma of basil make an impression by warming fresh basil leaves in double cream to gently infuse the cream with basil flavour. Whipping this up into a light and creamy frosting, each cupcake is decorated with a generous swirl of basil-scented cream cheese frosting.
