I LOVE cupcakes. I have two cupcake recipe books; For the love of Cupcakes which I’ve tried and tested various recipes from and Kinky Cupcakes which is a little bit above my expertise level still (but I cannot wait to have an excuse to use these!). So some of these are my own photos from the first recipe book.
I have loved butterfly cakes since I used to make them with my mum as a little girl. They’re so easy to make and you just need to make a basic cupcake mixture. For those who have never had these; you cut out a lump from the top of the cake, fill it with butter-cream (butter mixed with icing sugar) and then cut the lump into two ‘butterfly’ wings which you put on top. Sprinkle with icing sugar and voilà!
Chocolate Fudge Flake Cupcakes
These are from my cupcake recipe book and are so rich and yummy.
Chocolate & Toffee Cupcakes
I made these (again from my wonderful cupcake book) for the teachers at the school where I did a placement at a few years ago. I made another batch, a less sweet recipe of Ginger and Lemon (which I quite liked) but apparently English teachers have a sweet tooth!
Red Velvet Cupcakes
I have not made my own of these (photo credit goes to Salamander Stock), but I’ve eaten my fair few and oh my, I love them so so much.
Yep these are just a chocolate version of butterfly cupcakes, however, I couldn’t find a better alternative photo. I am a chocoholic so generally most chocolate cupcakes are amazing to me 😀 I have a whole bunch of cupcake recipes saved on Pinterest, including nutella and ferreo rocher ones.
