Hello girls, thought I would drop in with a Lemon Cup Cake or two, pop the kettle on then hey 🙂
One of the girls at work made some Lemon cup cakes, she called them muffins, muffins they are not, cup cakes they are and VERY yummy ones at that. I almost got on bended knee and begged for the recipe because after eating hers I craved Lemon. The recipe is here you will see it is a cake, but if you make the cupcakes cook them at 170 deg for around 20 mins, although please do test them as mine took longer. I mixed a little icing sugar with lemon juice, pricked the tops of the cakes and drizzled the lemon juice over as soon as they came out of the oven. I made 14 on Sunday, there are two left today (Tuesday)
The top photo of cupcakes is not her recipe, I trawled online to see if I could find a similar recipe as the girl only works a couple of days a week and we only see each other on one of the days, I tried it out……..just not the same.
Todays effort – the little ones are for ‘taste tests’ by request from a mum at dance.
Do you like the cases???? They came all the way over from the UK from the lovely Cuckoo in this box of goodies, I have used all out of the three containers shown here. I love them…..thank you Cuckoo.
I loved Cuckoos so much that I went on line and I found these……soooo cute.
I found them here and via ebay. Good old ebay.
Have almost finished my dads blanket, I have just a little sewing to do and it will be ‘tah dah’ time. I am knitting some little green booties for a friends son and his partner who live in Ireland. I received this beautiful yarn last year from the lovely Karen we were part of a ‘swap’ Karen lives in Ireland, the yarn is from Ireland and so it will go back home. Such a pretty color, we don’t know if the baby is a Master or a Miss, so I think this color will be lovely for either.
Well must be off, it is past dinner time and I still have to cook.
Have a lovely week lovelies.
