Thank you to everyone who joined in with last month's recipe - lovely to see some new faces too. All the creations looked yummy and there were some great variations involving different chocolate, apples and cinnamon. Congratulations to Sian at Pumpkin and Piglet who the random number generator picked as the winner of the lovely glass cake stand - enjoy! This month's recipe is apple crumble cupcakes, which I came up with to use up some cooking apples I have leftover. If you don't have cooking apples then I'm sure eating apples would work just as well, you may just need one extra for the recipe as cooking apples are generally bigger than eating apples.
Last month I decided to enter English Mum's Big Bakeoff with my Summer strawberry cupcakes. I watched, with my mouth watering, as the entries poured in. There were some truly wonderful looking cakes and cupcakes, and some brilliant children's entries.
A while ago I was tagged by the lovely Julie at Ice Maiden Cakes, who posed the question to fellow cake makers "Who makes your birthday cake?" Baking has long been a tradition in our family with my Mum, Grandma and Great Grandma all being fabulous bakers and that is certainly where I got my love of baking from. When I was little my Mum used to make me wonderful birthday cakes.
Roll call! So, who has managed a bit of baking this month? I only gave you a couple of weeks this month to get baking so I hope I gave you enough time. I have already seen some yummy looking lemon squares on some blogs but I'm hoping to see lots more! Don't forget to add any pictures to the flickr group to show off you baked delights and add a link to your blog post underneath here.
This is a sponsored post A while a go I received some different types of sugar from Tate & Lyle to try out when I was baking so I'm back with an update. I baked my cakes with the caster sugar and they were just as delicious as usual. If anything I would say that the sugar isn't quite as sweet as other brands, which is actually quite a good thing if you are then going to cover your cake in buttercream.
