Over the summer, I made some cupcakes for my friends. (Really though, I just wanted to bake some new flavours and needed people who were less biased than my family to try them.)
They all came out really well.
*Apple Pie cupcakes! (Aka The D(ean).) *The cake was full of grated apple and cinnamon; and was topped with a ring of vanilla SMB, which held a spoonful of baked apples and topped with (slightly overcooked) homemade pastry lattices.
Vegan strawberry lemonade cupcakes. The regular version was so good that I really wanted to try and successfully make a vegan version, too. Both the cake and the buttercream were flavoured with fresh strawberries and fresh lemon juice/zest.
(No photograph available – I didn’t think they looked pretty enough to take a photo of, hah!)
Vegan vanilla cupcakes. “Vanilla cakes are so boring, gosh.” NOPE. I followed the recipe in the ‘Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World’ recipe book, and these are hands down the best vanilla cupcakes I’ve ever eaten, the only improvement being that I need to find somewhere that sells shortening, so I can improve the structure of the buttercream.
