Let summer be-gin! Fragrant, zesty and ever so slightly alcoholic, these cupcakes are delicious and so fresh. As with everything on my blog, they are really easy to do so I promise decorating them will make you feel ginvincible! Okay, okay I'll stop with the gin puns now...

Seriously though, these are perfect to take to a summer BBQ or as a birthday gift for that gin lover in your life. They really do taste like a gin...

A few months ago I went to a chocolate making class for a friend's birthday and I can honestly say I was expecting it to be a bit serious, a bit complicated and altogether not that enjoyable for an 'experimental' baker like myself. Thankfully Leesa of Deli-Cious Chocolate Nottingham gave us a wonderful morning. It was a very educational but also VERY relaxed 3 hour workshop that was honestly, one of the most enjoyable things I...

Where to start with these bad boys! Buttery, rich and triply chocolatey - these are perfect for those cosy Sunday evenings with a cup of tea. 

Unlike normal shortbread dough, this version wants to be slightly springy and oily to touch after it has been refrigerated. I really amped up the butter in these to make sure they stayed nice and moist. The butter also acts as binding agent because the cooking time is so short it doesn't...

Mmmmm...cookies...peanut butter chocolate in a crunchy chewy cookie... 

Okay I'll stop drooling now but you get the point. These cookies are AMAZING and so easy to make. They don't use flour at all, the science is all based around the peanut butter. I don't know if you have ever tried heating peanut butter up (if you haven't, don't) but when heated instead of melting and becoming oily, the butter becomes like a thick paste...

These taste just like they do at the fair but are a much healthier option (although this recipe makes 24 and they are highly addictive, so 'healthier' is something of a loose term). Soft and spongy and sweet and sugary - you definitely need two things before you eat these: a plate and a wet wipe.  And don't even try the 'Eat a Donut without licking your lips' thing that's popular at the moment. 

You will need a donut...

Remember the good old days of Ben and Jerry's and Pizza Huts warm cookie dough...well, they need to be a memory no more! AND you can enjoy these with a cup of tea- surely a win all round.

Rich, deep chocolate sponge is filled with Pulsin Vanilla and Choc Chip bars, then topped with chocolate and vanilla frosting...it's a cookie, in a cake! 

Enough drooling - let's get down to business

Happiness starts here. Tangy, sweet, gooey - these babies are all you could ever want or need from a cupcake. A truly exciting flavour, the balance of lemon and marshmallow can be tricky so follow the recipe exactly - no going free form like I usually do! It's also important to add the lemon juice AFTER the flour and baking powder have been mixed in, if you do it at the egg stage, the mixture will split when baked and you will...

So delicious and moist, they won't know it's gluten free, honestly, it's been tested! I would absolutely love to be able to claim my own wonderful baking skills as the reason this cakes turns out so well and yes, there's something to be said for extra moisture and the method used...but the truth is...it's mainly down to the brand of flour. It was a few years ago that I took a chance on Asda's Free From own-brand flour, simply...

If you like Pina Colada and getting caught in the rain... sorry I will stop abusing your ears now. Well that was a lie, I can't promise that, while doing anything connected to these I had that song stuck in my head so it's been whizzing round there for quite a while now. Needless to say, my husband is very glad to see the back of this post!

What I can promise, however, are some delicious cupcakes. Like a little ray of suns...
