I am not looking forward to this weekend. My boyfriend is working and weekends are the only time we get to spend proper time together and that’s not going to happen this week. I suppose I shouldn’t complain, he doesn’t normally have to work weekends, but recently he’s had to more and when he does…
My stand mixer arrived yesterday and I, of course, had to play with it as soon as I got it, so my boyfriend asked me to make filled cupcakes with strawberry filling (as I also bought a cupcake plunger!)
I’ve adapted a Hummingbird bakery recipe for this one. Don’t worry when you taste the buttercream and it’s not sweet. It’s not meant to be, it’s meant to be a tiny bit bitter I suppose you could call it. I didn’t think I’d like it as I don’t like dark chocolate, but it’s really nice!!
We were at Brands Hatch on Sunday at the first round of Touring Cars. It was a brilliant day and I made some vanilla cupcakes to take along 🙂
