The latest faze to hit our house is cupcakes. Partly because I have been drooling over food blogs, partly because I look at far too many cooking magazines and partly because the kids love them. Now Nick and Sarah both wanted to make cupcakes last night, but of course they weren't content to both help with the same batch. No, Sarah wanted vanilla ones with pink icing and Nick wanted chocolate ones. So I did a quick search of some of my fav sites and found this divine Devil’s Food Cupcake with Chocolate Buttercream and Vanilla Scented Cupcakes. Made a few alterations to the recipes and voila, here is the kids finished result. They decorarated them with whatever they could find in the cupboards and the more colourful the better in their opinion!!

Then quite by conicidence at work today these people that come round selling cheap books at workplaces arrived with Susannah Blake's Cupcake book for only NZD$8. A steal as it retails here for $25. So I grabbed a copy of that and the kids are perusing that at the moment wondering what amazing creations they are going to whip up next!


  1. They look delicious! The other cupcake book I've been drooling over is the new Woman's Weekly one. They have a cookie book too that's on my must-have list.

  2. Ooooohhh... I love cupcakes! These look delicious!

  3. I love cupcakes!!!! Our tins were in bad shape and we didn't move them. I think I need to buy new ones. The kids love decorating cakes and this is the perfect canvas for them! Yours look great.
