Georgous Cakes - part 4
This week I made Vanilla Cupcakes and a Marble Cake with Butterscotch Cream.
Both came out very well although my 'blue' icing seemed to come out more green.
The cupcakes are decorated with Dolly Mixture, so I had a bit of a mission early in the week to find some that were gluten free. I ended up using Monmore Confectionery who have a selection of gluten free sweets. I love the look on 'im outdoors face when he finds something nice that its safe to eat and tastes like the original.
The marble cake should have been cooked in a ring tin, but as I don't have one I made two sponges then stuck them together with butterscotch cream and drizzled melted chocolate over it.
I'm very pleased with how they came out, lets see how they last the week.
Vanilla Cupcakes: These were ok and lasted the week well although the dolly mixture started to go a bit weird. Nothing that special.
Marble Cake with Butterscotch Cream: 'im outdoors said this was his favorite and it wasn't big enough. Got a little dry towards the end of the week but otherwise lasted well.
