Strawberry Milkshake Cupcakes

June 28, 2016


How does a Strawberry Milkshake Cupcake sound to you? When I say Strawberry Milkshake Cupcake I mean it, these suckers taste exactly like what they are named after and are the kind of cupcakes that you’re going to find difficult to stop eating after one, especially because the magic ingredient is Strawberry Nesquick, which is like pink magic powder.

I just recently bought The Hummingbird Bakery Life Is Sweet cookbook off LOOT and in it I found this recipe, which I thought sounded pretty awesome, I mean who doesn’t like milkshake flavoured anything? The answer to this rhetorical question is no one by the way.

Rosewater Cupcakes and friends

March 31, 2015

So today I’m starting a 3-part series on my blog called ‘Create With Canon’. I was given a pocket-friendly Canon PowerShot SX600 HS to use over the next few months and even though it’s a lot smaller than the camera I normally shoot with, I’m keen to see what it’s capable of and so far so good. I’m really having fun with little guy, because it’s compact and so easy to use, so here is part one in this project and it’s called Rosewater Cupcakes and friends. Hope you enjoy it.

I invited two of my very good friends over for a little tea and some Rosewater Cupcakes, which I lovingly and quickly baked a few hours before they arrived. I have never made anything with rosewater in it before, but it smells like Turkish Delight so I was only more than happy to dive head first into this recipe and into the end results.

A week ago I tried to make Boston Cream Cupcakes for the very first time. Now for those of you who don’t know what a Boston Cream Cupcake is, let me explain. They are vanilla sponge cupcakes filled with homemade vanilla custard, which are then smothered in rich chocolate icing. Sound good? You’re nodding yes right now, aren’t you?

Easy chocolate cupcake recipe

chocolate cupcake

I’m always trying out new cupcakes recipes, for vanilla and chocolate cupcakes specifically – I have made some really nice ones in the past and some that are so so. Yesterday we had the Durrants over for lunch, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try out the recipe below for chocolate cupcakes, plus I woke up in the morning feeling like cupcakes – Are you surprised? No, neither am I.

I also wanted to mention that I have added a new category to the left of my blog called My Recipes, which includes all the recipes I have tried out by myself that I have found online, in books and from friends.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Hi-Hat Cupcakes

I’m always collecting recipes for new baked goods, I hardly ever get around to most of them because this thing called time is sometimes scarce, but I still like collecting them because one day I feel like I will make some of them, especially the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Hi-Hat Cupcakes directly below – damn they’re like evil fat devils calling out me, I know I should look away, but I can’t.

All recipe links are below the respective photos. Happy looking and if you’re baking, then happy baking too.

Chocolate chip cookie peanut butter s’mores (…with the easiest vanilla bean marshmallows)

I have only just discovered this blog and I’m so super flipping happy I did. By the looks of it this woman can cook like a mother-fer and she’s not bad with a camera either. I have spent the last hour on her blog clicking through stuff, literally talking to myself while I stare at my screen wishing I was in a pair of fat pants in this woman’s kitchen taste testing EVERYTHING.

Why does she have to live so far away (Pennsylvania)? Why can’t she be my best friend and live on Corlett Drive? Why world, why?
