Mocha Cupcakes

Mocha Cupcakes

These mocha cupcakes worked out so much better than the batch of Chocolate & Mint cupcakes I made a few weeks back! I used a cake recipe from my Great British Bake Off book and then experimented with the icing. The coffee flavour is very subtle so next time I make these I will probably…

Chocolate & Mint Cupcakes

Chocolate & Mint Cupcakes

Chocolate, Vanilla & Black Pepper Cupcakes

These chocolate cupcakes are made using beetroot which gives them a really rich flavour.  I found the recipe in my latest cookbook Prepped!  I usually love using buttercream icing so I was a bit unsure about using cream instead but it actually made a nice change and tasted delicious. This recipe makes 12 muffin sized…

Guylian Mini Filled Eggs

These Guylian Mini Filled Eggs are absolutely delicious!  There are three flavours; milk chocolate truffle, milk chocolate praline and dark chocolate praline.  I couldn’t pick a favourite, they are all melt-in-your-mouth scrumptious and at £3.69 for 185g they make a slightly different and luxurious Easter treat!
