I do love a spot of Easter baking, and these fluffy little chicks I’ve come up with for Bake with Stork are just too sweet to miss!
So I’ll be honest from the outset, these frosted fancies are a bit of work, they’re not quick to do as there’s a fair few steps from cake making, coating and covering plus the decoration and there’s a fair bit of cleaning to do afterwards!
Not only do I have S’Mores Cupcakes for you today but I’ve teamed up with Ulster Weavers to celebrate National Cupcake Week with a great giveaway and you could be in with a chance of winning some fab kitchen goodies from their lovely range!
It’s National Cupcake Week this week (14-20 Sept) so it surely deserves a cupcake recipe on the blog! And we’re not just celebrating with a recipe, I’ve a fab giveaway lined up for you today too in partnership with Ulster Weavers and you can be in with a chance of bagging some beautiful goodies for your kitchen – watch out for my post coming later today!

If you’re still looking for something to bake for Red Nose Day this Friday then I have another fun and easy bake up my sleeve for you!
My Red Nose Red Velvet Cupcakes for Stork
You can get the recipe here including my usual step by step photos.
They’re fine one minute, beautifully risen golden cupcakes on the cooling rack, turn your back for a minute and they’ve made a bid for freedom with the cases sagging and splitting right the way away from your cakes.

(and a flaming strawberry!)
A Valentines treat that’s definitely got some wow factor!
There’s only one thing Mr C. loves more than cake and that’s ice cream so I’ve rustled up these Chocolate Valentines hearts especially. The cake and icecream is simple to do, the flaming strawberry bit is a bit faffy so think about having a practice ‘flaming strawberry’ run in advance.
