Gahh! I think I'm an addict. I just can't stop baking. I know this morning I posted that I was going to stop but I think I just need to stop making the guinness ones for a few days. So that said, Im moving on to my lavender, lemon and honey cupakes. All this cooking is in aid of the Ella Street Festival. Basically its a cute little street party that we have here in Hull on Ella Street and the street gets shut off and there are stalls and games etc. FUN! Sooo I thought it would be a good idea to kind of road test some of my ideas for the cookbook in there. Obviously I've ran with the Kitsch theme and I've split my table into two sections, we have the "Ladies Powder Room" and the "Gentlemen's Quarter".
For the ladies I'm running with:
Lavender, Lemon and Honey cupcakes
"Choc Mint Chic" Cupcakes
"Hot Lips" (white chocolate lips flavoured with raspberry and chilli and dark chocolate flavoured with orange and chilli)
and for the gentlemen we have:
"Drop of the black stuff" cupcakes (a combo of guinness and tia maria- yikes!)
Vanilla and Bourbon cake with a crunchy almond brittle topper
"Nutty Selleck" moustache cookies
"Benjamin Buttons" biscuits
and a few other little bits and bobs to keep the day ticking over. I'll post you some pictures later on so you can see how they have turned out. Fingers and eyes crossed please!!!
