It was my sister’s birthday this week, and since she is now all the way in Australia (sniff) I cannot make her a birthday cake. When I go to visit her I will make one to compensate, no matter how belated it is! Which brings me to very, very belated photos of my own birthday cake(s). My birthday is in July, so these are fairly out of date, to say the least, but I’ve just realised I never posted them.
I am firmly of the opinion that one can never have too much cake. I also have a baking reputation to uphold at work. I therefore turned to the trusty Hummingbird Bakery ‘Cake Days’ cookbook for some cupcake recipes- I made hot chocolate cupcakes to take into work during the week (and even had the forethought to acquire some very miniature marshmallows with which to decorate them), and vanilla cupcakes the following weekend with my sister.
Needless to say, both were excellent, as I find is always the way with Hummingbird recipes.
