Season’s Eatings

I haven’t really baked anything for a good while! Sam has very kindly had me to stay this week so I figured it was a prime opportunity to whip up some cupcakes! And they even survived the train up. These are “candy-cane” cupcakes – vanilla with swirled peppermint frosting from the Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days book!



Chocolate fudge cupcakes

On another one of my baking whims, I decided to bake chocolate fudge cupcakes. I used Nigella’s recipe and made chocolate buttercream frosting to put on top. These were easily the best cupcakes I’ve made thus far – so delicious. I think they’ll have to make another appearance sooner rather than later.

I went for dinner at a friend’s house on Friday night and was assigned the task of bringing dessert. I didn’t really have time to bake anything so when pitching alternatives to the lovely girls in my office, we concluded that strawberries dipped in chocolate were a good idea. I had never attempted them before but figured they couldn’t be that difficult to make, and they weren’t. They were a real success at dinner (and before, as we kept sneaking them from the tin) and those that wouldn’t fit into the cake tin were popular with my flatmates too.
