|Mmm cherries and chocolate, my 2 favorite things to find in a cake!|
I'm such a bad blogger at the moment, sorry! I had a busy week or so sorting out an exciting new work/business thing (sadly not food related), and then I was ill yet again. I know, I know, thats all I've said lately and I promise it won't be said at all in my next post!
So, moving on to the food. I've made a few new recipes lately, all of which I promise to upload over the next week or two. The first of which was these coconut cherry cupcakes with added chocolate chunks, complete with milk chocolate ganache and white chocolate decorations. Why I've never made chocolate ganache before I have no idea but it is amazing, I am converted. Then I made iced marshmallow coconut cookies, which were a bit of a disaster looks wise but tasted great. Then a few days ago I finally got round to making brownies, from a recipe I found on the BBCs website which had great reviews, and it definatly lived up to its hype.
Finally today I've made more lemon cupcakes, I had to make sure my finished recipe was still good and not just a first time fluke. I scooped out the middle and added a dollop of lemon curd and then topped with lemon buttercream and decorated with lemon zest. Well if you're going to go lemon then you might as well use as much as possible!
