A special order for these cupcakes from my next door neighbor, was asked yesterday if i could make them for her son's birthday. A bit last minute but i couldn't say no as she wanted to do something special for her son :)
Made another batch of lemon cupcakes, you can find the recipe HERE, they are the same ones as the ones i gave her to try last week and she really loves them. And because this one is for a birthday celebration i put them on a cake stand and dress it up nicely with a bow.
Because these cupcakes are for a male recipient, we choose a more of a neutral colours instead of yellow and pink like last week :)
They are just as light and fluffy as the ones last week, this time i remembered to take a picture of the inside of the cupcake to show you how delish they are :P
As usual i can't decide which photos to post coz i love them all :)
This is how they look from the top view, i love how the rosette swirl looks :)
Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!
This weekend we decided to take a break from cookies and make cupcakes instead :)
Lemons must be in season right now becoz they are on special in our local supermarket, so we decided to make these lemon cupcakes. We posted the recipe HERE in our recipe sections.
And instead of making the usual buttercream icing we are trying out a different topping for these cupcakes. We made a lemon whipped cream icing instead, and they are so zesty and so delish!
You've just got to try making them as they came out so light & fluffy! Love the moist cupcake taste and they just melt in your mouth! Yummmm ;-)
Making the icing is really easy, you only need fresh cream, icing sugar & fresh lemon juice. These are an alternative from the normal buttercream icing, we prefer it actually (less buttery) and who doesn't like the taste of whipped cream right? :P
We posted the instructions on how to make the icing on the recipe section too. Here is the link in case you missed it earlier.
Okay i realized that these are a lot of photos, but in my defense these cupcakes are so photogenic
i just can't help myself :P lol
Okay, okay... i promised that was the last one, these cupcakes are a hit in our house. I would highly recommend trying out this recipe, you family will love you for it ;-)
Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!
We found a carrot cupcake recipe online that sounds pretty easy to make, so we thought we give it a go one weekend. The recipe seems easy enough...however the trickiest part was making the cream cheese icing. It was too runny and the vanilla essence made it look pretty yellow instead of the off-white stiff icing that we like.
However i can honestly say that the cupcakes were yummy and moist :) So I think the next time we make this cupcakes we will try a different cream cheese recipe, one that has a stiffer icing, and we might subtitute the vanilla essence with almond essence instead so it won't look so yellow.
Here is the finished result...
Dont you just love those cupcake cases? they are so pretty! Oh and we made the little daisies and leaf decoration on top of the icing.
Here is a mug shot of the cupcake for your viewing pleasure...i guess the photographer in me just wont stop at one photo lol :P
We also use a normal cupcake cases
They are so photogenic that i can't help taking more close-up photo :)
