Remember to be thankful for cupcake ideas!
Well, Thursday is fast approaching and the groovy girlie cake chicks will be looking forward to cakes tomorrow evening.I am certain of it. Especially, as we are celebrating Rachel's birthday and a visit from an old girly cake chick, Louise, this week. So, I have begun making some cupcakes! (I won't spoil the surprise here, though,just yet!) My friend Abbie, gave me a fabulous cupcake recipe book for my birthday, called "Cupcake Magic" by Kate Shirazi,which is full of inspiring ideas. You can get her book online and each book bought includes a donation to the Battery Hen Welfare Trust! How cool is that! She has battery rescue hens - I would love that! The basic cupcake recipe couldn't be easier, has helpful tips and is given in measuring in cup or scales options!
Peasy! I love the way she talks about "plonking" heaped teaspoons of the mixture into the cupcake cases. I also found a fab website the other day and ordered some funky cupcake cases, more to be seen....later.
Meanwhile, check out www.cakeadoodledo.co.uk for the magic cupcake book and how to order cakes directly and www.craftcompany.co.uk for funky cupcake cases and other lovely crafty things!
