Moar cupcaeks

I’ve been asked to make 100 mini cupcakes for a party next month, so I thought I had better make a practice batch… I normally make giant cupcakes, more akin to muffins, but I think the smaller versions are actually a bit better – much less sickly. These cupcakes were supposed to have pillarbox red icing, but no matter how much colouring I put in, I couldn’t get it redder than this – is it possible?! And don’t even get me started on the green icing I tried – it was supposed to be a nice festive moss green, but ended up a neon lime green (plus it tasted foul). Very disappointing.

I also baked an apple cake (recipe here), which was absolutely delicious. I don’t have the sweetest tooth, but this was lush. My sister gave us a bag of apples she had been given, that must have weighed 5 or 6lbs – I think there are lots of apple crumbles and cakes coming up…

And I’ve also been doing some knitting…

Not the best picture, but hey. I managed to knit this in a day and I’m really pleased with it (despite the whole thing nearly unravelling; there was a knot in the yarn which was actually tying two ends together… Until it came undone. Not happy.) Anyway, I hope the recipient likes it 🙂
