This week, instead of making knitted cupcakes (or 'fairy cakes' as we used to call them in England), I have been baking them instead - batch after batch in preparation for a cupcake stall I volunteered to run at a big local event in two weeks. Everyone thinks I am mad to have volunteered but I am actually really looking forward to it.
I am not exactly a domestic goddess, I can only make a few things really well (full English breakfast, Hollandaise sauce, cup of tea, apple crumble, shepherd's pie, toast) but I am really proud of my cupcakes and they always get snapped up so I guess they are pretty good.
Tanya at Lily & Agathe asked me ages ago to write a recipe post for her cute new 'how to' blog, so I have posted my best fairy cake recipe and you can see it here. These are some of the photos I took for the post - do you think I own too many cupcake cases? I seem to have an obesession with them and was surprised at quite how many I had when I pulled them all out of the pantry!
