So December and impending Christmas festivities is really all about indulging – and what could be more indulgent than an icing laden cupcake? I like some icing, not too much but not too little, and of course it must taste as good as it looks! My icing skills are certainly not professional in any shape or form but with a little guidance and hard to find patience I can achieve good things! I have finally purchased a pack of modelling tools in the sale so it might improve with time!
At Christmas time we always have my mum’s gorgeous light fruit cake and mum knows fully well that without it we would most likely disown her or perhaps sell the concert tickets I have bought for her, shh! However not everyone sadly loves fruit cake but there are lots more cakes, of all shapes sizes you can enjoy too! From show stopping tiered wonderlands to petite fairy buns there is something for everyone – and nothing is more controversial than the humble cupcake! For some of my friends they shy away in horror at the thought of one, the rest would probably devour it and not come up for air during its quick death!
To coincide with the launch of the 500 Cupcakes recipe book by Apple press, which has been written by Fergal Connolly and Judith Fertig, I have a copy of the book to giveaway to one lucky cupcake loving reader!
This chunky little book is full of inspiration and a range of exciting bakes and even more exciting toppings to play with and have some fun along the way too! There are even some savoury cupcakes - how about a Basil Pesto Cupcake? Not quite sure but sounds intriguing.......!
