I’ve neglected my website a bit over the last few weeks as I’ve been so busy. But it’s been a good busy and it’s meant plenty of time in the kitchen.
Here’s a little rundown of what I’ve made lately:
I’ve had a steady trickle of orders for Cupcake Bouquets and Cupcakes in a Jar for Mothers Day which has been great!
I haven’t baked a brownie for what seems like an eternity so I decided to bake a double chocolate brownie. Rather than just leave it plain, I added some marshmallow and chocolate flake. I was very happy with the outcome – moist and sticky inside and with a slight crunchy top and then the stickiness of the marshmallow and chocolate! Perfect!
I had been asked by my friend Lorraine to make some cupcakes for her mam’s 60th birthday. She wanted red velvet with a red 60 topper. I decided to make half with the number 60 in fondant and the other half with a red star and the number 60 imprinted in the fondant. I used the recipe from the Hummingbird Bakery and it created lovely deep red cupcakes. I was really pleased with the fondant toppers (I use Renshaw ready roll icing). I hope Lorraine’s mam enjoyed her birthday and the cakes!
There was some mixture left over from the red velvet cupcakes so I thought, lets make a little cake. I have some mini cake tins so filled two of those. I sandwiched them together with vanilla buttercream and then topped with a cream cheese frosting. It was quite sweet but as it was a mini cake it was such a nice size!
I love making chocolate spoons! I bought some lovely little toppers for the bags the chocolate spoons go into and couldn’t wait to try them out. I made spoons with white chocolate and milk chocolate and some just milk chocolate and all topped off with mini marshmallows. They are super easy to make and so cute..
Well I think that’s me caught up….. for now!!!
