Of late my friends and I have been rather spoiled for baked goods. During the last two big birthday nights they have accompanied us to each celebration. Last week an amazing key lime pie made it out to the pub. I didn’t make it but my friend Kirsty did and it was sublime! (no pun intended).This week this little cupcake and his friends ventured to a cocktail bar. I baked them for my friend Christina. If you know Christina then you will be thinking that they were probably a wee bit too cutesy for her. Some sort of black (being the predominant colour of her wardrobe) design would have been more fitting. But you can’t put black on a cupcake it looks horrendous! So I went for Christina’s personal alternative to black and decorated them in pink. The hearts are hand made from royal icing and hundreds and thousands, the pink is buttercream flavoured with vanilla. This is my favourite cupcake recipe that hasn’t failed me yet (touch wood). It is super easy and very tasty -even the barman enjoyed one!
