Earl Grey Cupcakes If you love Earl Grey tea, you'll love these cupcakes. The delicate bergamot flavour of Earl Grey tea will intensify with every bite. Do not adjust your monitors for yes, it is I. I can't believe it has been such a long time since my last blog post. To cut a looonnngg story short, before I left I was dealing with some issues and had been very down. Because of this, it was becoming impossible to try to be cheerful on my blog. I didn't want to post anything negative, so thought the best action was the old saying of "If you haven't got anything nice to say, don't say … [Read more...]

Dulce De Leche Banoffee Cupcakes Have you missed me? :) I hope you said yes then because I've missed each and every one of you. As I said on Sunday's link party, (which is still open. Go submit, do it now) I've been ill. Thanks to those of you who wished me well. I'm feeling tons better - yay for painkillers! Crappy frosting swirls! Can you believe January is almost over? When did that happen? Why has it gone too fast? To be honest, and I don't know why, things have been epically busy for me since Christmas. As we all did, I took time out from blogging over the Christmas and New Year … [Read more...]

Cookies and Cream Cupcakes First and foremost… HAPPY NEW YEAR! Did you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year? I hope so. I did, and not one drop of alcohol touched my lips the entire festive period too! But wow, isn't it exhausting? I think I'm still in shock after all the festivities. I over indulged on Christmas day too, of course! :) I feel so out of touch with blogging. Seriously, it feels like I've been away for months, not weeks… Craziness. Just trying to get back into the swing of things. Does anyone else feel like that too? Seriously, I feel like I've been away from … [Read more...]

Campfire Cupcakes

campfire-cupcakes-1

Campfire Cupcakes It's bonfire night (whoop!) But sadly, this is the last installment of bonfire night goodies (boo!) It's been like a war zone here. Fireworks making that loud fizzing/squealing noise with a pop at the end. Then, of course, there's the bangers. You know the type, the ones that shoot up with no noise at all then an almighty ear-popping bang that ricochets around the houses. The ones that make you jump so such your heart races! They're like someone sneaking up on you in the middle of the night with a balloon and a pin! *clutches chest!* There's only one way to settle your … [Read more...]

Gothic Rose Vampire Cupcakes

goth-vampire-rose-halloween-cupcakes-2

Devil's Cardamom Chocolate Cupcakes When I was a teen I totally went through that whole Goth phase. We're talking crushed velvet, milk-like pale skin (which I'm totally naturally guilty of anyway - pass the fake tan, stat!), corsets, black and white stripy tights, and um, Marilyn Manson (and now the barf bag please because yes, I just went there!) Thankfully, I grew out of it some years later with the exception of some rock music but we're not talking death screams anymore. However, it has left a lasting strangeness to my soul and might probably be the reason as to why I'm drawn to those … [Read more...]

Bloody Brains Cupcakes

bloody-brains-cupcakes-2

Bloody Brains Cupcakes What do you love best about Halloween as an adult? For me, it still seems like a mystical time of the year. In England, the end of October is normally cold. If it's not raining, there's normally a frost in the air and you can always see your breath in the air as a little cloud that shines in the street lights. Obviously, it's so much better if there's an awesome full moon with creepy cloud cover too. I love that I can get warm and cosy on the sofa with a giant cup of hot chocolate and a huge warm jumper with the fire on. As a child, there was a children's park on a … [Read more...]
