It was my brother's birthday last weekend, so I whipped up a batch of cupcakes to serve at a family BBQ to celebrate. And just to add a little something extra, these cupcakes are flavoured with caramel and chocolate chips.
Any chance to use mini eggs and loads of chocolate - I'm there! Here is my first Easter bake of the year.
Everyone needs a basic vanilla cupcake recipe, right? This is one I like to use to get dainty, level cupcakes which I can then decorate with glacé and fondant icing, for whatever occasion!
It's always nice when friends from back home take the time out of their own busy schedules (whether that be due to full time work, higher education or travelling the world) to come and visit you in your new home at university. We spent the day doing some of my favourite things to do on a quiet weekend in Worcester; here, I am going to give you some top tips of what to do both in Worcester and generally, when friends visit you.
This is a recipe I found a while back (I believe it was on allrecipes.co.uk) for an extremely moist carrot cake that uses oil instead of butter, like a typical sponge. I adapted it into a three-tier cake and it has gone down a treat with all those who have tried it! A solid family favourite.
