For reasons I am not yet at liberty to disclose (it will all become clear very soon), Sundays on my calendar are now simply cupcake tasting days. Every Saturday a good friend and I whip up a few batches of our favorite cakes before convening over a pot of tea on a Sunday afternoon to try our lovingly crafted baked goods. Sundays are now my favorite day of the week.
The Marshmallow cupcakes are from the wonderful Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook which I picked up a few weeks ago. I've used this book tonnes since I bought it, best £17.00 I ever spent :)
Chocolate chip cupcakes with a peppermint cream cheese frosting with a Plain Jane vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. I based the recipe for these on the Oreo cupcakes I made a few weeks ago.
And last of all a chocolate custard cupcake which I saw on Anne's Kitchen a while ago. I wasn't to impressed with this one, it was a bit of a faff to make and they came out rather dry. I probably baked them too long, they certainly didn't come out as pretty as Anne's *jealous*
Also, I'm very excited to add that my red velvet cupcakes (which I forgot to photograph, d'oh) shall be featured as wedding favors at my best friends wedding. Not only that, but they will be served in one of Newcastle's best restaurants, Jesmond Dene House. I'm ecstatic and also very jealous that my darling Georgia is getting married in such an exquisite venue.
