Happy Easter – Lemon Cupcakes

cake5
Hello Everyone,

Happy Easter! At the moment I have two separate blogs for my beauty/fashion posts and my home/baking posts. I read so many blog tips saying that you should make your blog very specific and not to mix too many ideas into one blog. The only issue I have is that by separating my blogs I can’t post on both of them as much as I would like. Today I really wanted to post my Easter Cupcakes on here. As a beauty blog reader I do actually enjoy bloggers that have a variety of content on, especially baked treats. so please do let me know your views on this.

Cupcakes:

1/8 tsp salt
170g crème fraîche

Icing:

200g cream cheese

Cupcakes:
1. Preheat oven to 180°C and fill a 12-cup muffin tray with paper cups.
2. Sift together flour, baking powder, soda and salt, set aside.
3. Cream softened butter and caster sugar until pale and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until they are well combined. Beat in the lemon extract.
4. Fold in half the sifted flour mixture, then fold in the crème fraîche. When well combined, fold in the remaining flour mixture.

Ooo aren’t they so cute! And yummy too! I would say if I were to make them again I would increase the layering of the mixture to pretty up the inside of the cakes a bit more.

    Cute! The way I see it, it’s your blog, you choose what goes on it. Besides, if you listen to what everyone else says about what you should do with your blog then it won’t be unique to you anymore. If you write what you want and are passionate about it then people will recognize that and want to read what you have to say!
