Healthy baking

24 Sep

Happy Monday CakeSnobs! Sorry I haven’t blogged much recently, but i’ve been on a bit of a healthy kick recently and haven’t been making many desserts and a fat free dessert is very disappointing ūüė¶

However I have had 2 successes – sugar free meringues and frozen yogurt.

Sugar free meringues:

I added sweetener to stiff egg whites to make these goodies. Best eaten on the day of baking as they go soft when stored in tupperware.

Frozen Yogurt

For this scoop of deliciousness, I added natural yogurt, vanilla yogurt and vanilla extract all mixed together into my ice cream machine and let it go for about half an hour. Without a machine, mix all ingredients together and freeze!

I have to say this is one of the yummiest things I have ever made – healthy or not! If you have any healthy dessert recommendations please let me know!

Wish me luck for this week as I am make french macarons as a present for my best friend’s engagement party, I’ll need it!¬†Cake you later…

 

 

Dr Who Cupcakes

10 Sep

This weekend I made Dr Who cupcakes for a birthday. These were vanilla cupcakes, filled with either raspberry jam or dulce de leche, bringing an extra flavour sensation to the cupcake, and keeping it extra moist!

I topped these with Dr Who figures made from edible rice paper. Needless to say the birthday boy was very happy and the cupcakes¬†didn’t¬†last past the weekend!

 

100 Cupcakes!

3 Sep

Hi Cake Snobs! Hope you had a good weekend… ¬†I certainly had a nice rest after delivering my biggest order yet, 100 cupcakes and complimentary brownies for my first big corporate order! These were for the lovely Lorien Resourcing whose CEO used my cupcakes to raise money for charity… what a lovely idea!

So without further ado, here’s what 100 cupcakes look like!
