Archive for the ‘Strawberry’ Category

FullSizeRenderAt the weekend I decided to give last weeks technical challenge a go. It looked impressive but I couldn’t help thinking that it looked like a pavlova, just constructed in a slightly different way. However, I put my doubts to one side and bought a ridiculous number of eggs so that I could spend an afternoon making a mess in the kitchen. Click here to keep reading.

When I went to the supermarket earlier I spotted that they had British strawberries. I refuse to buy strawberries unless they’re British since the flavour of non-British ones just isn’t as good, so when I saw these I picked up a couple of punnets. I carried on doing the weekly shop and when I got to the cream section I saw that there was one pot of clotted cream left. So I decided I was going to make some scones for afternoon tea – it was meant to be! Would you like some afternoon tea?

photo (90)Time for another installment of the “party biscuit” cupcakes: Jammy Dodger cupcakes. These were just a mix of recipes I’ve made previously – my usual vanilla cupcakes, filled with jam, topped with vanilla buttercream, and my recipe for jammy bodger biscuits made into mini biscuits.

red nose jammy bodgerLast week I saw an email about a cake sale in the office today for Comic Relief so sent an email to say I’d bake something to sell. I then discovered there was a bake off too so I thought if I was going to bake something to sell I might as well enter it into the competition. There were various categories to enter so I decided I would make cupcakes and enter the cupcake and showstopper categories and then if I had time I would bake something for the biscuit category. I managed to finish work slightly early so I had plenty of time while the cupcakes were cooling. Choosing which biscuits to make was pretty easy – for Red Nose Day there’s only one type of biscuit which is suitable… Red Nose Jammy Bodgers!

I’ve been trying to think of events which are coming up soon, which I can make cupcakes for. The obvious ones came to mind – Halloween, bonfire night, birthdays etc. Most of the cupcakes I make end up at work, mainly because I can’t eat a whole batch myself so if I want to try a new recipe I might as well take them in! This week, it’s the last day before one of the girls I work with, Laura, goes on maternity leave. This occurred to me at the weekend on the train home and I started thinking of loads of “baby” related cupcakes. However, this week has been really busy at work so I had no time to make any decorations in advance so I actually didn’t get to make any of the decorations I thought of 😦 I guess they’ll have to wait until the next person leaves to go on maternity leave!
Feeling ambitious and want to try three cupcakes in one?
