Lemon Meringue Cupcakes:

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes:

These are really quite self explanatory  they are vanilla cupcakes and i scooped out the middle, filled it with lemon curd and meringue on the top! They really are easy to make ans they also look so cute!

All Blacks Cake!

ALL BLACKS CAKE! Happy birthday George

This was the rugby and All Black cake i made for my brother 14th birthday! As he loves rugby this really suited him! The bottom layer was chocolate and the top vanilla which he likes and all of his friends finished it so thats a good sign!

Vanilla Buttercream Cupcakes

Vanilla Buttercream

I actually made these cupcakes ages ago! They were the first ever cupcakes i made with a piping and tip. I love the colour pink in sweet food and i still love these pictures even if i did make them in 2009 when i was only 14. I have also always loved sprinkles which i think just makes these mini cupcakes!

Blue and White Cupcakes with Petunias!

Blue and White Cupcakes with Petunias!

This was the first time i had ever made gumpaste flowers. I bought a couple of veiner sets like petunia, blossom etc and these were my fav! They were for someone's birthday and she wanted blue, white and orange so this is what i came up with!

Cookie Dough Cupcakes!

Cookie Dough Cupcakes!

I had always wanted to try something like this and after googling many recipes and looking at many food blogs i didn't like any of the methods people had used like freezing the cookie dough in a ball and them cooking it in the cupcake as i wanted it uncooked and as cookie dough in the middle. So i cooked the chocolate cupcake, scooped out the middle and pressed in the cookie dough which i personally think is must nicer than if it was cooked in the cupcakes. Frosted with vanilla butter cream and sprinkled with the left over cookie dough on top!

Mochachino Cupcakes!

Mochachino Cupcakes:

I am not really a coffee person but i do like a good mochachino so here is my version of it in a cupcake! The cupcakes was just chocolate and i put a couple of the instant mocha sachets in with the hot water to get the coffee taste. To make it look more like i coffee top i piped meringue and browned it in the oven then drizzled chocolate!

High Tea Cupcakes!

High Tea Cupcakes:

These were for a high tea i was going to! I had bits and bobs left in my draw from icing flowers to butterflies so i mixed them all together to make it look a bit like a garden on top of pale pink icing!

Red Velvet Mini Cupcake!

Red Velvet Mini Cupcake:

I always get asked.. what does red velvet taste like? I never know how to answer because it not chocolatey or had a distinct taste it just is that 'red velvet'. These are one of my favourite just because they are different from plain old vanilla or chocolate and they always look nice with their bright colour. Cream cheese icing is one of my favourite i would eat it with a spoon if i could so with that on top you can never go wrong!

Coconut Clouds!

Coconut Clouds:

I really liked these cupcakes as they have a really nice flavour. Im not a huge fan of strong coconut which was good as the recipe had coconut cream instead of milk which gave them a really good texture and taste not too strong but you could still taste it. The marshmallow frosting was very sticky but exciting to make! Both the cupcake and the frosting were very light as they are called coconut 'clouds' and suit there name!

Caramel Cupcake!

Caramel Cupcake:

Yuuum who dosn't like caramel! The recipe had a caramel sauce that was in the cupcake, frosting and drizzled on top! I was worried they were going to be too sweet but they weren't although if they were any bigger they may have been! These didn't last long in my house :p

Cookies n Cream Cupcakes!

Cookies n Cream Cupcakes:

Cookies and cream need i say any more! Vanilla cupcakes with oreos crushed in them mmm! And them with cream cheese frosting (one of my favourites) with oreos on top! You can never go wrong with these, everyone loves cookie and cream! 



This was the first batch of macaroons i have ever made! I was so pleased as i was really worried they weren't going to work but they did. I made these as part of my food tech high tea project. The recipe i used said put sprinkles and glitter on the top which i don't think i will do next time as i would have like them to be a bit more pettie but i was still happy with them!

Wishing It Was Summer Cupcakes!

Wishing It Was Summer Cupcakes:

I made these in the middle of winter on one of the most miserable days! I was really wishing it was summer so i made coconut and pineapple base with cream cheese icing and jandals (flip flops) and daisys on the top as that seemed to me as a wishing it was summer cupcake!

Rugby Cake!

I made this cake for my dad 2 years ago for his birthday! If you cant tell already its a rugby field and the cake underneath was a chocolate mud cake!

Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes!

Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes:

You can never go wrong with chocolate fudge cupcakes! This is another one that i made a long time ago but love the photo! I don't actually remember what i did to make them different from a regular chocolate cupcake but it looks yummy and i would eat it! From looking at the photo i think i remember making a fudgey frosting and the chocolate decorations to go on top!
