A Marbling Delight!

Usually when I make a cupcake its that final flourish of Buttercream or Chocolate Ganache that really turn it into a thing of beauty (combined with glitter and sprinkles of course!), there is one exception to the rule and that is Double Baked Chocolate Cheesecake Cupcakes! The cupcakes are a combination of dark chocolate sponge and vanilla chocolate chocolate chip cheesecake (yes complete indulgence but entirely worth it!) I sometimes like to add a little crushed oreo biscuits just to add a slight crunch.

They have such a unique finish that is almost like marble and a complete shame to even contemplate covering in any form of icing, that said if you just cant utter the word ‘Cupcake’ without sugar filled buttery lovelyness then a cream-cheese based frosting works really well.


Life is to short for sifting flour….

I started this blog to share some of my favourite things in life; baking, photography and writing.  It is getting to that time of year when the sun starts to set a little earlier and the cold dark nights draw in; when only a hot cup of tea and a big slice of freshly baked cake will warm the bones…that or a slice of pie, or cheesecake, or a perfectly iced sparkling cupcake, a slice of warm just out of the oven smeared in butter bread…you get the idea don’t you?
