Warm (cupcakes) this winter

Hey guys! I was just trying to knit a mug hug for my mum, for christmas. A mug hug is a knitted strip that will go around a tea cup, to keep in heat and make it look nice. It was while I was making it, I thought why not try to make a cupcake cosy. Keep your cupcakes warm when they come out of the oven. It may seem a little weird, yes, but cute too. I have made a picture of a "cupcake cosy" for you all. The "cosy" is the one i am making for my mum, which i took a picture of. The cupcake is from the internet.

I would like to have a go at making one of these, but I am going to make a mug hug for a family member for christmas first. Why not have a go at making one.

Christmas

Hey guys! I have really got into the christmas spirit. Today my friend made some really sweet snowman cupcakes, a vanilla cake, white chocolate icing, and a ready to roll icing snowman. For christmas, we did a cupcake swap, so our christmas presents were cupcakes to each other. My other friend made a chocolate sponge cupcake, with a plain green vanilla buttercream, shaped as a christmas tree. I made a chocolate sponge cupcake, with a chocolate buttercream and a glace cherry on top. If you look at my cherry cupcakes revisited post, those are the cupcakes that I gave to my friends. I didn't stick to the christmas theme, but I really enjoyed making them, so why not have a go. Here are some christmasy inspirations for you to have a go at.





This is like my friends cupcake

Update

Hey guys, as you may know, I did say I was going to try to make some lemonade cupcakes. The problem is is that i can't make them until after christmas now, because i have been ill all weekend and I can't make them next weekend because that is when I am making my christmas batches of cakes. Fyi, I am making a red velvet santa hat cupcake, a batch of cinnamon cupcakes, and a batch of chocolate cupcakes, in the shape of a christmas pudding. Here is what I would like them to look like:

Cherry cupcakes revisited



Hey guys
So as you know from one of my earlier posts, that i made some cherry chocolate cupcakes. Well I remade them for my uncle, but without the double cream, as there was none in the fridge. Hope you enjoy them ;D

A new flavour

Hey guys! I have just come up with an amazing new cupcake flavour. LEMONADE. I have looked on the internet and all of the cupcakes seem to be pink lemonade cupcakes. I am thinking of a lemon sponge, lemon buttercream and lemon popping candy on top, with a red and white striped straw. I will try and make these as soon as possible and post the results. Have a go at making some if you want, and send me your results.

Cupcake competition

 These are my chocolate cherry cupcakes. they have a chocolate sponge, with a cherry filling, and a swirl of chocolate buttercream, a swirl of double cream, and some crumbled up flake and a cherry on top. I made these for a little competition and i came second by one mark. The winner was a plain chocolate cake with a few marshmallows dotted around it. (I probably came second because it was all men judging the competition, and they don't really have an eye for detailed, fancier things ;) Well, i hope you like them.
