First things first, apologies for the lack of posting recently. Rest assured, this was not due to a lack in baking...oh no the baking has continued, but there was a lack of internet which was more than a little frustrating! How did we ever live without it, hey?! but I'm back online and have lots of goodies to post for you.
Starting with these...they may look like Valentine's cupcakes but actually it's just a co-incidence with the timing. I got an email this week from one of my best friends back home in England. A few months ago her boyfriend proposed to her in the middle of Central Park on a carriage ride in New York City!! Pretty awesome, right? So now they are planning a fun and fantastic wedding for September and what would she like me to contribute? cupcakes of course! There is no greater joy than baking for me...but baking for such a special event - well that makes me super excited!
So she told me her colour scheme is white and red, and that I absolutely had to make my Martha Stewart Brownie Cupcakes because she has never eaten a tastier cupcake! My baking supplies over here in TCI are limited. Whilst they have a good range of baking ingredients here on Island (because most of them are American) they are severely lacking in the decorating part.
So I made do with the decorations I brought over in my suitcase, yes I sat and picked my way through a jar of patriotic sprinkles sorting all the red and white ones but you do what you have to do!
and this is what I threw together this afternoon, just for fun and as a little sampler for my friend to see and decide if I am on the right track for what she was hoping for!
In the meantime, for those of you not planning September red and white themed weddings, they are perfect for a little Valentine's inspiration!
