The other half laughs at me; I apparently go through phases when it comes to chocolate. I have a handful of favourites of which I alternate between, usually focusing on each one for a couple of months before moving onto the next. January through April it will be Mini Eggs, the rest of the year it is between Wispa Gold, Cadbury Lu and Crunchie. Right now, I’m having a bit of a love affair with caramel so Wispa Gold is the winner as well as the inspiration behind these Chocolate Caramel Cupcakes.Read More
Here comes the sun, doo doo doo doo… Unless you too are in Scotland. Then you might be blessed with the sun in the morning but it’s likely you’ll still get rain in the afternoon. That’s not to say that you can’t still embrace some summer baking like these zesty little Lemon Cupcakes!Read More

These constant grey skies have us craving the start of spring and these Spring Fairy Cakes seem to be just what the doctor ordered!Read More

(I’m definitely the latter). And for those of you out-with Scotland (or the UK – do you get Tunnocks Teacakes down south?) who have absolutely no idea what a Tunnocks Teacake is, these Tunnocks Teacake Cupcakes are just the education you need!
You know when you get an idea in your head and you just can’t let it go? Well, Irn Bru Cupcakes were my most recent obsessive idea! For whatever reason, I set myself a mission to turn Scotland’s number 1 soft drink into something I could bake & enjoy. And let me tell you, it wasn’t an easy task!

And this Gingerbread cupcakes recipe is just the remedy for feeding that festive feeling!Read More
