Friends of ours recently had their first baby (a beautiful baby girl) and, as I had already attended a baby shower where gifts had been given cupcakes was the ideal gift to give. A selection of sugar-hits was just right to get the new parents through the first few days of being up at all hours with baby! I had a little fun with a new flavour too; Chocolate Rose. A rich chocolate cupcake flavoured with rosewater, topped with a dark chocolate buttercream piped rose. For fans of Turkish Delight it is a must! Along with some Mint Chocolate & some pink frosted Vanilla there was something for everyone & I didn’t have to turn up empty handed; win-win!
We are visiting with a group of friends this weekend too & they got their requests for cupcakes in a few days ago so today I baked up a storm & we will be taking Lemon Meringue, Chocolate Peanutbutter& Fizzy Cola cupcakes with us. The smell in the kitchen this afternoon was lovely & I am looking forward to giving the gift of cake tomorrow.
