#Cupcakes


Pair the delicate flavour of matcha with these delicious cupcakes for a perfect afternoon treat!


Nyan Cat cupcakes to help raise awareness for fighting against animal cruelty. You can help too with RSPCA Cupcake Day!


Spring is in the air, the Prosecco is flowing, and the cameras are clicking. It’s all about the Prosecco on our King Valley Food Photography Workshop. The spring blossoms are out, and travelling from winery to winery is nothing but a picturesque journey.

King Valley is most definitely a #happyplace just a few hours from home.


Just a reminder that RSPCA Cupcake day is on Monday!
If you are after something a little bit different, and little bit cute; why not give these a whirl!


Purple frosting is the thing of dreams, especially when it oozes a fresh blueberry flavour. Paired with the lemon curd cupcakes, it goes fabulously with a cup of tea.


What’s been going on?

• RSPCA Cupcake Day
• Luna 1878 Night Market – Queen Vic Market
• Yarra Valley Chocolaterie Hot Chocolate Festival
• Prahran Market Harvest Hall Reopened
• Queen Victoria Market Tours

It started with a tweet. It started with a tweet of mine: “good news – I didn’t buy a cookbook today. bad news – 1 bought 3 instead. is there a cookbooks anonymous I can join?” (Don’t worry Mum, they were all well below retail price, and my savings are going well!) The good thing

After brunch at Brown Sugar cafe, and some adventures around the city; which included me buying a new lens for my camera, to take better blog photos… there was a need for afternoon tea. Sure we could have just gone to the Lindt Cafe again, but I didn’t really want to blog yet ANOTHER Lindt

So I made it back into my kitchen to do some baking. After eating, and enjoying lots of free salami, I thought I’d try cooking something without using salami.. although I’m not sure how salami cupcakes would have turned out; or who would have eaten them! This recipe seemed interesting; combining doughnuts and cupcakes into

Nothing makes me happier than to see people get all excited and smile when you give them cake. Of course, the compliments that follow it don’t hurt the ego either. This was certainly the case today at work when I brought in neenish cupcakes! There were a few Michael Jackson jokes about it being black
