Salted Caramel & Chocolate Cupcakes

I can’t seem to get enough of salted caramel and chocolate recently, I blame it on my recent trip to Whole Foods and discovering a pot of ready made salted caramel. Then, I went to Cake International and came across the Sugar & Crumbs stand where they sold flavoured icing sugars… any guesses what one of the flavours was?   Continue reading “Salted Caramel & Chocolate Cupcakes”

An experiment – Chinese-style cupcake

Chinese New Year is almost upon us, which means we’ll be soon be celebrating the Year of the Horse and I’ll be back at home, enjoying Mum’s cooking and collecting lai see! And what better excuse do I need than CNY, to experiment with a chinese-style cupcake?

I’m a big fan of lemon flavoured cakes and blueberries are one of the very few fruits I eat (I know, I know, I should eat healthier..) so why not mix the two together? The burst of colour from the blueberries in the cupcake makes it a little more interesting as well. Recipe as follows…

Review: Peggy Porschen Cakes

Peggy Porschen’s cake parlour is possibly, by far, London’s prettiest cupcake cafe located on a corner in lovely Belgravia. If I ever opened up a cafe, it’d be exactly what Peggy’s parlour looks like – the pinks, browns, elegant decorations… beautiful! Right, now onto more pressing matters, so the shop looks nice, but what are the cakes like?
