Scout fete... or is it?
Decided to try a new cupcake recipe for the Scout Fete. We had to put our names against a list of cakes to bring for sale and cupcakes had actually gone. Chocolate chip cakes, however, were still there so it gave me the opportunity to try these cookie dough cupcakes from 'Making Cupcakes with Lola'. They have chocolate chips in the cake batter and they also have cookie dough placed inside them when cooked. The mini cookies decorating the top are store bought.
I couldn't resist making some traditional vanilla cupcakes with a cherry on top as well. I did check that it was ok to make extra things so as not to tread on anyone's toes!
So I've had a busy morning indoors when the weather outside looked like this....
You can guess what happened next. Just put the last glace cherry on top of the iced cakes when I got the text that the Fete had been cancelled due to the rain! Looks like it's an afternoon in eating my bodyweight in cake... better get the kettle on! :)
