Ok, so earlier today I shared a video I found about icing your cupcakes to make them look like dogs. So I was rather keen to have a go at trying it and I’m pleased to announce I have a bunch of dogs sitting in the fridge now, eager to be let loose for mums birthday tomorrow! I made her favourite coffee and walnut cupcakes 🙂 Now as I’m a bit of a scrimper these days I used less ingredients for decorating and got away with some coffee buttercream and white and milk chocolate buttons. First few were a bit on the tricky side, but it gets better!
Yesterday I had another urge to get busy in the kitchen and thought I’ll l make some more fancy cupcakes. These were the best cupcakes ever!!!
- Coconut & Raspberry with Raspberry Butter-cream
- Carrot mini cakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
- Lime cupcakes with Lime Meringue topping
Last night I thought to myself I hadn’t made cupcakes for ages, so I set myself a mission to create some scrummy treats for my other half and his work colleagues. So today I spent about 3 hours in the kitchen attempting to create little beauties that would go down a storm on Cupcake Wars , however I must admit my icing skills are not something worth bragging about… Either way I now have a fridge full of 3 types of cupcakes:
- Caribbean cupcakes with lime&ginger butter-cream
- Coffee cupcakes with rum butter-cream
- Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate & Orange icing
