Yes, I have been baking again!! (: The last batch were soo good and still have one more of my uni batch cupcakes left. It has been a little bit of a disaster with these cakes which I will soon explain but in the mean time I just want to say thank you to everyone who has spoken to me and said how impressed they are with my cakes. From my best mates to people I barely ever speak to who come up to me saying how they love my blog and how they have showed their parents or even asked for a recipe, I really do appreciate it!!
So I am a skint student, like the majority of us so I didn't want to buy anything new for this bake therefore chose some simple chocolate cupcakes with caramel sauce (all hand made of course :) )
It has been a bit of a disaster firstly because caramel sauce usually requires double cream or whipped cream but being silly lactose intolerant its very hard to replace this hence the sauce does taste a bit salty and not as creamy as I hoped but what can you do, its all trail and error!
I also used plain chocolate to layer the cupcake top and sprinkled some dairy free fudge, after it has set I made some caramel butter cream using the caramel sauce! Sprinkled with a touch of salt and drizzled some more caramel sauce mmm!
Now for the things that went wrong.. firstly I put the temperature on the oven for 100 instead of 160-180 degrees C.. then once they finallyy cooked I placed them on a hot oven ring. IDIOT, so burnt some of the cakes! Luckily I had about 2 cupcake mixture left in the bowl so baked them. But oh no.. shock, we had a power cut whilst they were in the oven and whilst the other cakes were setting in the fridge. To conclude, I have no idea what these taste like and am actually a little worried to try one. Never mind eh haha!
