Assorted fruit cupcakes...New flavours peach melba, kiwi twist and mango passionfruit lime. Each are so delicious and fresh every cupcakes have fresh fruit folded into the batter.
My favorite is peach melba i used whipped cream and mascarpone as the frosting drizzled with raspberry puree.

Daring Bakers Tender Potatoe Bread Challenge

I had made bread before three times and all those times the bread turned out either under cooked, had no taste or extremely hard. When I read what this month's challenge was i was quite apprehensive.
I followed the recipe step by step only omitting the wheat flour ( which I thought I had bought but apparently did not)...
I must admit the bread turned out surprisingly like a crusty french baguette. Crunchy on the out side but soft with bits of potatoes hidden.
Great recipe one for keeps!

Lily Cupcakes

Red Velvet Cupcakes

I've always wanted to know how red velvet cake tasted like but quite frankly I never had the guts to try it out until now. I came across many recipes some adding bottles of red food colouring to the batter...Frankly that scared the ...out of me. Food coloring in vast amounts must be toxic!Or perhaps eating the cake might turn ur tongue red?

Well I made these cupcakes from a recipe that required the use of 2 tbsps of food colouring. They turned out pretty red once i sliced them in half they were moist and looked like velvet.

Taste wise they remind me of a cocoa cake.I think they'll make beautiful xmas cupcakes with ribbons tied around the paper cups.

Very pretty in pink

This was my first time using icing fondant...The results are pretty and cute.I hope it tastes as good as buttercream though.
Vanilla cupcakes always look good dressed with pink frosting. I don't know what it is but if you had cupcakes on a plate in all shades of pastels...i'd definitely go for the pink ones first. I love pink.
