Been really busy these two days...had a big order of vanilla and chocolate cupcakes for the Estee Lauder launch of their new perfume Pleasures on friday. Stayed up till late on Thursday night making cupcakes and swiss meringue buttercream...came up with new flavourings..such as Lemon honey, Vanilla almond and kiwi....just a different twist to the normal vanilla buttercream... I love martha's stewart's recipe....much lighter, fluffier and less sweet. Here are some pictures...the ones from the actual event I will post later when i get them from the event organiser... However just took two with my mobile phone when they were beginning to set up. Heard they all had fun decorating the cupcakes!!! ( the choc cuppies had to be glazed twice in order to be evenly glazed those in the pics were glazed once)

One can never go wrong with chocolate and whipped cream..I got this really gorgeous recipe for rich chocolate cupcakes( 6 0z of chocolate for 12!)...so when they came out of the oven I dipped them in two layers of Milk Chocolate glaze then topped them up with fresh whipped cream with sprinklings of choc chip.....wow they taste incredible!!! One of my favorites cupcakes to date!!!!!!
Cheesecakes ...theres alot to be said about them. They can come in many flavours and toppings, made from alot of cheeses, baked or non etc...However they all taste divine...just biting into a piece is cool, refreshing, soft sweet with a creamy velvet tang...Nothing describes it best till you've had a taste yourself. For me I've tried making a variety of cheesecakes ranging from mangoes to passionfruit...My favorites are Marbled chocolate and Pineapple cheesecakes Give a me a baked cheesecake anyday!!!!
