twist and shout



I'm sure everybody's news feeds and timelines are full of declarations of love and photos and bunches of flowers so I won't bore you with any of that. Yesterday I spent about 4/5 hours in the kitchen making my boyfriend about 25 cupcakes (why so many?!!). I separated eggs, creamed mixtures together, melted chocolate, whisked egg whites (really impressed by this one), smashed two bowls, got flour all over myself and ate icing until I felt sick. Thought I'd share with you a few photos and a much easier chocolate cupcake recipe (here!) than the one I used. I topped them all off with a square of turkish delight as that is my boyfriends absolute favourite, but they would work for anyone topped off with their own favourite, I think malteasers would be a good one! Have a good day whatever you're doing! Also check out my millions of ebay listings if you're after some bargains or pattern cutting books for cheap, here.
