Upside-down Pecan Nut Honey Cupcakes

May 1, 2020

Are you a fan of pecan nut pie and what about vanilla cupcakes? If you have answered yes to both these questions then say hello to these Upside-down Pecan Nut Honey Cupcakes.

Picture if you will, a sticky, nutty, honey and cinnamon topping sitting on top a fluffy vanilla cupcake. They are a bit of a twist on a classic pecan nut tart, but a twist I’m ready to embrace with open arms.

Dark Chocolate and Vanilla Cupcakes with Milk Chocolate Icing

February 8, 2019


Time to share a very nice, very simple recipe for some delicious Dark Chocolate and Vanilla Cupcakes with Milk Chocolate Icing. These cupcakes are topped with the kind of rich and smooth icing that will have you eating a cupcake as a kid does, icing first and all over your face, before you bite down into soft vanilla sponge dotted with chunks of real dark chocolate.

I was chatting with some of my friends on Whatsapp a few days back about bran muffins and who has a good recipe for some, which prompted me to get my cookbooks out page through a few recipes. I was adamant to bake something that was going to throw the results of my latest gym session straight out the window!

Raspberry, Custard and maple syrup cupcakes

August 7, 2018


If you are a fan of a good old-fashioned vanilla cupcake but sometimes feel like jazzing it up a bit then do I have a treat for you. Everyone say hello聽to these Raspberry, Custard and Maple Syrup Cupcakes made from soft sponge, smooth vanilla custard, maple syrup and a hint of tart raspberry. It’s my first time making them and I was so happy with how they came out because they’re not only pretty to look at, but they’re 100% addictive too.

I must be honest and I’m not sure if you guys feel the same, but I struggle with vanilla cupcake recipes. I’ve tried what feels like a thousand of them, but there is less than a handful that I’d share with anyone asking for a really nice vanilla cupcake recipe, luckily I can add this one to that list. These were actually some of the best I’ve tasted, so this recipe is definitely a keeper.

Easy to make bunny cupcakes

August 28, 2017


I’m happy to say that the second episode of mine and Nina James’ YouTube series Tastes Like Nice is out and it’s all about Easy To Make Bunny Cupcakes, which really are easy to make not to mention really fun!

I love making these with her because she really gets to play around with the decorations and often, in the end, we get a mix of the funniest, but best looking ‘bunny’ cupcakes that look like they belong to the craziest crew on the block! This recipe which doesn’t require that much admin or ingredients聽yields some pretty tasty vanilla cupcakes that have been flop proof every time I’ve whipped them up, so don’t worry about coming out with average cake (some vanilla cupcakes can be so average). The icing I use is a pretty standard butter cream icing, but if you don’t feel like it, you could always replace it with a yummy marshmallow聽frosting.
