Lemon and eldeflower cupcakes

I haven’t baked cupcakes in forever. I’m not sure if it’s because they went out of style a little bit or because I’m a pretty greedy person and I’d rather bake one big cake that can be cut into generous… Continue Reading →

MALTED MOCHA CUPCAKES

These yummy treats have a lovely rich, slightly sticky, moist sponge sitting underneath that swirl of thick, creamy, fluffy buttercream. I’m a sucker for malt and chocolate together and the subtle background of coffee really brings them together nicely. Because… Continue Reading →

CARROT CUPCAKES WITH APRICOT CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

Have we talked about how good my mums carrot cake is? She claims that she just slings all of the ingredients into her Kenwood chef and then tips the resulting batter into a tin before baking it but I’m sure… Continue Reading →

PEACH MELBA CUPCAKES

CHOCOLATE CHIPOTLE FAIRY CAKES with sour cream frosting

We’ve talked about my addiction to chipotle before. As they say the first step to recovery is admitting that you have a problem. I’m not ready for rehab yet though, to quote (sort of) William S. Burroughs “You become an… Continue Reading →

APPLE PIE FAIRY CAKES

The last time that I made a batch of cupcakes I had more sponge mixture than I really needed so I divided the remaining mixture between some little fairy cake cases. After I had baked them I then put them… Continue Reading →
