Sunday baking

Lemon Meringue cupcakes

They really are yummy and as we have a glut of lemons from an online shopping mix up I knew I had to bake them.

My wonderful son gave me a lovely cupcake recipe book for Mother’s Day. Sponge base with lemon and cream cheese in the recipe, home made lemon curd on top of that then lovely crisp meringue with a fluffy soft inside on the top.

Bit more work than your average cupcake but boy are they worth it.

Was pleased with this sweet card which I made for a colleague for his mum. He recently forgot her birthday so is hoping this hand made confection will earn him some brownie points.

A perfect Sunday Afternoon

Cherry Cupcakes

After what seems forever, it was lovely to get out and about in the sunshine this afternoon. It was a bit chilly so we didn’t stay out too long, but a lovely walk in some local woods was just the thing to raise the spirits, after the seemingly unending gloom that has been winter this year.

Home into the warm and to round off a lovely afternoon some time baking was lovely. I made these cherry cupcakes and a batch of the most delicious ginger biscuits that are so easy to make it’s untrue.

Happy Sunday everyone!
