Last year before Christmas I made some cute little penguins to go on top of cupcakes. They were pretty quick to make so given I only had an hour left before I wanted to go to bed last night, and I had 11 undecorated cupcakes, I decided to try making some robins in the same way!

I went through a phase a couple of years ago of making minion cakes. Since then the minion baking has been limited but I’ve been wanting to make some cupcakes like these for a while. So for Tom’s hockey match a month ago I made a batch of yellow minions with 2 evil purple minions. It was a bit of a rush so I shoved them in the box without managing to get any good photos. I really wanted to share them on the blog so I decided to make them again! Me want banana!->

Acorn Cupcakes

 Autumn has definitely arrived – we’ve had a couple of mornings with frost, some very wet weather and the pavements are starting to get covered in leaves. So for the first cross-country race of the season a few weeks ago I decided to make some autumn-themed cupcakes for after the race. On the day of the race, it was actually extremely mild – not like a typical cross-country race day – which made a nice change! I also really enjoyed the race. The course was great – undulating with a few muddy sections and a water jump (which was my favourite bit – it helped to cool me down!) Click here to keep reading.

It must be time for another blackberry recipe! I haven’t baked any cupcakes for a while, so thought I would make some seasonal ones. I made some chocolate cherry ones a few months ago and liked the idea of combining dark chocolate with the fruit. I also love the colour from the blackberries so added a blackberry puree to the buttercream, to give a pretty pinky purple colour. I also used the left over blackberry and white chocolate ganache to put in the middle of the cupcakes – delicious! Click here to have a go at the recipe.

Rubber Duck Cupcakes

After a lot of indecisiveness (usually the case if I haven’t already got a plan about what I’m making!) I decided to make some rubber duck cupcakes for the cake trolley the other week. I had plenty of sugar paste left from cakes I’ve made over the last few weeks so some simple decorations to use it up seemed like a good option. Click here to see the rubber ducks!

Last weekend I visited my sister-in-law Tams and her hubby Pete, they got married and bought a house together last year and this was our 1st visit, so I thought it would be a nice idea to make some ‘new home’ cupcakes. I chose a yummy looking chocolate cherry cupcake recipe to try out. Click here to see what I baked.
