A little while ago (in a place far far away.. *cue music…* no, wait, thats star wars..) I decided that I wanted to make cakes. Cupcakes to be specific.
I have no idea why, they’re girlie things really, but they’re perfect bit sized pieces of heaven that can be made in about 30 mins and in a myriad (love that word) of different varieties.
So, Monday we made chocolate caramel with almonds and a chocolate butter icing with grated chocolate and almond sprinkles.
They were delish, perfecto and by now, Wednesday, all eaten. They are only teeny.
So, tonight, after lovely home made pizza, and perhaps fuelled by the couple of pints of beer I had consumed, I decided to make more.
All hail pistachio vanilla sponge cupcakes with purple butter icing and pistachio sprinkles.
Oh yeah baby!
