Today, i have had the sweetest tooth! All I’ve felt like doing is baking deliciously chocolaty treats, but because of the lack of ingredients, it was postponed until tomorrow. For now though, I thought I would prepare you for what to expect in the next few days. I want to share a few of my recipes with everyone, so that I don’t feel as guilty about eating such terrible treats!
I absolutely LOVE baking and cooking, and I love altering recipes to add a little twist! Tomorrow I will be making a delicious minty, Lindty treat. But for today, because I was lacking ingredients, I thought I’d share a few photos of the quadruple chocolate cupcakes I made for my sister Kristen’s 22nd Birthday in Plett.
I was out of ideas- and because we were not at home- most of my baking tools, so i had to get a little creative with what I had, and I ended up using wax paper as cupcake holders, which turned out to look great! I used normal choc-chip cupcake mix, then added a slab of cut up milk chocolate and I made a chocolate butter cream icing to top it off, with grated chocolate ontop. It turned out much better (and chocolatier) than I had expected, and they were delicious!
On a different note, my daily blog mention is a lovely lady called Anthea , whose blog Embracing Style is absolutely lovely! It’s really refreshing and different, and it gives off a great South African feel. It is simple and creative and always an interesting read! This is definitely another daily must-see!
As always, ENJOY!
