Lemon Cup Cakes = Yum


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.

Ahhhhh, much nicer, the recipe from the girl at work.

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.

Actually it is more lime/citrus green than this, so pretty.

Well must be off, it is past dinner time and I still have to cook.

Have a lovely week lovelies.

    Love this wool, green is one of my favourite colours. It was my school uniform colour and as a result i think I detested it for years, until I bought a bottle green top with black bead trim ad fell back in love with green 🙂
    Have a lovely week too x

    Love those cupcake cases you found on ebay. They are lovely. Much nicer than the ones I sent from the UK. A good find me thinks!

    Where is the time going? Did you find that by the time your third child was 18 months almost every moment of your day is accounted for with kid/house stuff? By the evenings I’m too pooped to blog. I haven’t replied to any emails in ages either. I owe you one. How mortifying! I will respond, you know I will, I think about you heaps and wonder how you are doing.

    Did I read you are on the move? Exciting, if exhausting, times ahead. Just remember where ever you are as long as you have a yarn stash all is well!!!
