My friends James and Hannah are getting married on the 23rd June and they have asked me to make 100 cupcakes. It will be the first time I will have to make a large number of cupcakes under pressure.
I really like baking and I think I am sometimes quite good at it, I am nowhere near as good as my friend Abbie, check out her amazing blog http://danngoodcake.blogspot.co.uk/ you may thing her cakes look good, trust me they taste even better!
So because my baking isn't completely up to scratch I decided I should practice.
They are just vanilla sponge cupcakes with vanilla icing, the icing will (if James and Hannah approve) be blue to go with their colour theme. They are a tiny bit over cooked but I am generally pleased with them.
Things I learnt from this practice, 1. Don't get distracted when the cakes are in the oven/ set a timer. 2. put the silver balls on as soon as i have iced. I did it too late this time and they ended up bouncing all over my kitchen.
