I don't know about you, but sometimes I wake up in the morning and think 'I'm going to make something yummy today!'
Yesterday was one of those days :)
As dinner had already been decided (lamb rogan josh in case you were wondering) I thought I'd make something particularly scrummy as an afternoon snack/desert.
At the moment I don't have a cake tin (shock horror) but I do, for some reason, have 3 different sized muffin tins. So muffins it was!
I decided to go for white chocolate chunk ones...mmmmm chocolate....
Here they are fresh out of the oven
Mmmm yummy! But they look a little bit boring don't they? I thought I'd have a go at making them pretty.
But there was a problem with that.
Cake decorating is one thing I am RUBBISH at. Honestly, my last attempt looked like a 4 year old had got some goo and slapped it on a cake. Don't believe me? LOOK!
Have you finished laughing? Or are you offended and know that your four year old could probably do better?
So yeah, I'm rubbish at cake decorating. But I refuse to give up! Yesterday I shut the kitchen door and told my other half not to disturb me until I told him he was allowed to come in and not to worry if he hears lots of swearing and a few cupboards being kicked (not that I would get that frustrated.....)
Disaster! My piping bag has gone walkabouts :( But I have the nozzle...so I fashioned one out of some cling film :D Huzzah! Back in business :)
Take a look at my raspberry flavoured butter frosting!
Oh yes! I'm pretty darn proud of these! You might notice a couple of mistakes (I know how eagle eyed you all are) but the main problem I had was that my blasted cling film piping bag kept splitting :( So not a bad job I think?
But they needed something else...
Ah! There we go :)
And they were delicious too!
