Explosions of Flavour

With my continued research into the world of baking and my desire to experiment, I have been in the kitchen trying out a few more recipes. My husband is big fan of macadamia nuts and requested I make some cupcakes using them in the batter. After some thought I baked Maple Syrup and Macadamia Nut Cupcakes. Rather than rely on feedback I sampled one and was pleased with both the flavour and the texture.

It was back to the kitchen to again try something new. My audience was well known for their "sweet tooth", so I decided to create a true chocolate experience; milk chocolate cup cakes iced with milk chocolate butter cream and then decorated with candy coated chocolate pieces. My husband and I enjoyed half a cup cake each, and we were both delightfully surprised.

Some of my readers know that I participate in the 'Relay for Life' each year, an event which raises money for the Cancer Council to fund cancer research. The Maple Syrup and Macadamia Nut Cupcakes and the Milk Chocolate Cupcakes were sold and the proceeds donated to this fundraising.
