Sugar and Spice
My lovely cousin Marlene recently gave birth to the first little girl in our family for 21 years, the gorgeous Abigail. I decided to whip up a yummy batch of baby girl cupcakes in her honour but also as some comfort food for her sleep deprived mummy. Marlene is a chocaholic so I decided to make a real 'old school' chocolate cupcake. Not a fancy pants mudcake or flourless cake, but an old fashioned, light and fluffy chocky cake like mum used to make. These are Classic Chocolate Cupcakes filled with Malteser mousse and frosted with Vanilla Buttercream frosting. The first design is based on a design by the amazing Not Quite Nigella and i have been dying for an excuse to make my own adorable baby booties. The second design are huge handmade sugar pansies and handmade initialled sugar love hearts with 'A's for Abigail.
