Chocolate cupcakes with white chocolate chips

My friend Tara came round again yesterday for more baking (+ air punching to Magic FM + watching Hercules on DVD). I like how these cupcakes turned out. Just your standard cupcake recipe with plenty of cocoa powder and some white chocolate chips thrown in.

I need to stop buying cupcake cases.

Note the Harry Potter lightning bolt, noughts and crosses and x_x cupcakes.

My x_x face brings all the boys to the yarrrd, and they’re like, baking is harrrd.

Also, a few shots from a confectionery shop in China Town! Seeing as we’re on the subject of sweet things.

My eyes widen whenever I walk into any of the Asian food shops in London. They’re always so cute and enticing. I’m easily tempted by cute packaging. Just the other day I was in a Japanese food shop on Brewer Street and came out with koala-shaped biscuits in a colourful, patterned box. Needless to say, I hadn’t even thought about them again until now. I don’t know if I even have the heart to eat biscuits shaped like koalas. If you want to sell something, put it in a cute box.

We run, we run

My beautiful friend Edie and I met up in Leicester Square today and decided to fulfil our tradition of gorging ourselves on dim sum whenever we’re in London together. We were so stuffed after our meal that we had to walk it off for a couple of hours. I had such a fun day and the perfect end to a tiring week.
