Lemon Cupcakes

Lemon cupcakes are a great alternative to the classic vanilla and chocolate flavours. Lemon desserts in general are always a solid option in my opinion. They offer not only sweetness, but a tangy citrus to cut through your taste buds. After vanilla cupcakes, I’d say that lemon cupcakes are the easiest to make. If you’re…

Lemon & Blueberry Cake

I have been MIA for 4-5 months, but it has taken a while for me to get back into the flow of university life after spending 2017/18 on a work placement. It was about time for a makeover, so I’ve acquired a domain, revamped the website and have a new logo courtesy of my good…

Chocolate Fudge Brownies

The cake itself is a pretty standard pound cake, but with a few extra flavours. The buttercream used is Betty Crocker’s vanilla buttercream. I used the Wilton…

Apple Crumble

This classic dessert brings back so many memories of lunchtime in primary school. Before the whole Jamie Oliver school dinners shake up, apple crumble was hands down my favourite. It was so good I remember one day I had seconds…and thirds! The majority of kids had it with custard, but I hated custard (still do).…
