I have a great fondness of any bird but the blue bird takes me right back to my childhood and my Gran R reading me Cinderella over and over and over. I loved those blue birds toting that pink ribbon to Cinderellas dress! The feature I love the most on these cupcakes is the little spackle of blue dust on the cupcake. This is definitively a go to if you are looking for that fairy tale Birthday celebration. Cheers to the Artisan Cake Company! xox

Earl Grey Cupcake Method and Rose Water

You can adapt this to most any cupcake or cake batter recipe that you have which indeed requires milk. The method you would use is to take your milk volume and bring it to a gentle boil, place 4 Earl Grey tea bags into the milk to create the infusion. For a successful flavour transfer to your cupcake without a bitter taste you  must only steep to a maximum of 40 minutes. Be certain to remove and discard tea bags at this point. To enhance the floral taste of the bergamot you at this point will want to add 1 tsp of rose water to your infusion. Make sure to cool the infusion before pouring into your wet ingredients of your recipe.

Pinkalicious Cupcake

I have yet to read Pinkalicious however this is all the motivation I need. Destini certainly captures that festive pink sweet celebratory mood with her work. Very inspiring and with a little patience I think anyone ought to try their hand at this. Just lovely.

how do you put in the cream filling?

There are 2 techniques I use. One is to use an apple corer and pull out a plug of cake, then I pipe the plug full of filling. I freeze the cake cores for other uses later. The second technique is I use a pastry filler tip and squeeze the filling gently into the cupcake with quite a firm hold on the sides. ( do not over fill or your cake will indeed split) Hope this helps

Happy Mothers Day to you All

Today is a different Mother's Day for me. I am not with my children this year as they give me a Mothers day everyday of my life. This year I am treating my hens to a spa for chickens like Mothers Day and they are loving it. They woke up to a delicious watermelon cut in half for the taking and mounds of strawberry hulls.

Much to my surprise they are also in love with warm brown rice so yes you guess it, a warm breakky on a chilled morning.

Finally to finish the morning breakky, coconut cupcakes unfrosted of course.

It is truly a Mothers day to share with you and my kids (25 years, 19 years, 11 years)
Cheers to all of you on Mother's Day
