  • 200g butter, at room temperature
  • 3 large eggs

  3. Use an ice cream scoop to divide mixture amongst tins. Bake for 15 minutes until risen and pale golden. Let the cakes cool in the tin for 10 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  4. In a bowl, beat together the butter and third of the icing sugar with an electric mixer until creamy. Add the Bonne Maman Rhubarb Conserve and mix to combine, then gradually mix the remaining icing sugar and beat for 2 minutes until pale and fluffy.

  5. Spoon the rhubarb buttercream icing into a piping bag, cut the tip of the piping bag to the size of a 20p coin. Pipe the icing on top of each cake in a zigzag pattern, and then sprinkle with dried rose petals and chopped pecans. Best eaten the day they are made.
