Somebody stop me!!!

Presenting baking attempt no. 2!!!


I decided on chocolate cupcakes instead of muffins (simpler recipe) and am delighted with the results again. I was under pressure to bake this week, I think every school and preschool in Australia must be having an Election Day cake stall and the note to mums at my boys' school and preschool specified "HOMEMADE CAKES"!!!

I'm so glad this deadline made me give it a try because I've really surprised myself by enjoying it. With my new baking knowledge I have actually managed to make 2 batches of yummy cupcakes and got a real kick out of pulling these lovely treats out of the oven and knowing I made them myself.

Don't worry, this isn't going to turn into a baking blog, just pretty excited with my first couple of attempts!
