Today’s treat was going to be a lemon drizzle cake, except for the fact that I’d forgotten to buy eggs! So rather than crying over unbaked cakes I thought I’d go eggless! I’m hoping it will make a yummy vegan cake for the collection – although I used cows milk!
The skirt was a yummy vanilla sponge layered with strawberry jam and buttercream, and finally covered in fondant icing.
This week seems to be manic, I have cupackes to bake for a meeting tonight, then I have a sandcastle cake for the weekend, and after that I have a pig cake, a disney wedding cake and a plane shaped cake!
So cupcakes… normally I use my ol’ faithful muffin recipie, but have run out of oil, so I am going to try a new recipie – well I say new.. it’s more of an old one that was used for smaller cupcakes so I have just adjusted the recipie.
