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!
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.
