*Easter Cupcakes with Cake Angels!

I’ve been so excited to publish this post!  As you may know I  love keeping myself occupied and one of the ways is baking. I mean you cannot have a better Saturday with sugar all over the work top and chocolate on your nose. It’s just a win win. Recently I got an exciting package of Cake Angels to contribute to my Easter baking.

The recipe I used for my fairy cakes is from the BBC food page which you can click here to access.

Once I had baked my cakes I got some chocolate icing at added it to the top of my cakes. I then decorated the cakes with the following toppings:

Cake & Dessert Sprinkles: I love sprinkles whether that’s for cakes or any types of desserts but for cakes they’re definitely my favourite. My favourite sprinkles have to be the multi-coloured ones because they’re just so pretty and really tasty.

White Mini Marshmallows: If you know my me you’ll know I LOVE marshmallows more than anything so I couldn’t be happier decorating my cakes with marshmallows.

Daisy Flower Fun: Finally I had some lovely flowers and Easter themed iced toppings they totally finish the cakes off perfectly. They look super adorable and are prefect for any occasion to compliment an event.

Hey guys!

I hope your having an amazing Valentines Day so far! I have finally got a week of college phewwww! Today I’ve got a recipe to share about one of my favourite snacks – cake pops!! It’s super easy if you have a cake pop maker which is so much easier if your like me!! Also, it’s a perfect treat and can decorate them how you wish making them super adorable. I’ve put a picture above if you want to make yours all pink – I went for chocolate themed ones because I love chocolate!

[Recipe from Food Network]

Ingredients –  

tablespoons of coffee granules

1 1/3 cup of water

box  cake mix

1/2cup vegetable oil

eggs

1 tub of Valentines Sprinkles

Directions –

Add the softened butter and sugar to a large mixing bowl and beat until light and fluffy then beat in the egg and vanilla essence to the mixing bowl. Add the salt and baking powder to the bowl and mix in. Gradually sift and mix in the flour. Add the milk and mix all of the ingredients until they come together to form a smooth batter.

Make sure that your Cake Pop Maker is pre-heated and that each cavity has been coated with an oil spray. Add a dessert spoon sized amount to each cake pop cavity on the bottom baking plate. Carefully close the lid and allow the cake pops to bake for 4-5 minutes.

You can test that the cake pops are ready by inserting a toothpick into the middle of one; if it comes out clean they are ready. Switch off the machine and leave to cool for a few minutes before removing with a wooden or plastic utensil.

Decorate your cake pops as desired.

I hope you enjoyed this post!
