Anyway, the same day as my last post (over a month ago. Oops) I decorated some cupcakes. In the last post I told ya how I made bread to take down to a big family get-together. I also took cupcakes. Pretty ones. And some decorated for the holiday it was (any guesses?)
Whisk Kid and its super awesome. Its a meringue buttercream, which takes a bit of work to make but its super duper delish. I also used the icing to cover a cake I made to celebrate my Irish daddy's 40 years in the army (way to go!)
Outside the cake
Inside the cake. Colourful, eh?
I stole the idea for the cake from the Whisk Kid's Super Epic Rainbow Cake and obviously mine didn't come out nearly as nice, but I thought it was ok for a first attempt.
I also made a tasty baked cheesecake for my Irish co-workers as none of them had tried one (they do chilled cheesecakes here which are yummy too but I prefer the baked ones. Guess its what you grew up with) and it came out really good:
Baked Lemon Cheesecake with a short crust pastry instead of digestive biscuit. Yummy!
I did some dinners too, but the desserts are more colourful :)
Sorry again for the long gap between posts. I'll try to be better :)
I'll post tomorrow with the amazing snow we've had here and my oft requested multiseed bread recipe :)
