Weekend Baking Teimes
This week I have been thinking about baking all weekend. I have actually got to baking as much as I like, but I still have all of Sunday evening so I may just get around to it yet. I have however made one batch of cupcakes I planned to make.
One of the guys at my work just has a lovely baby boy which he has called Alex. I know his wife loves to bake too, so instead of buying gift I have decided to make my winning low-fat vanilla and jam cupcakes decked out in baby blue. I think they look quite sweet. I hope they like them.
I've also tried to make some vanilla cupcakes with the low fat sugar substitute as there is quite a difference in the calorie count. These didn't turn out so well; the batter tasted fine and the texture looked the same, however they stuck to the cupcake case and didn't quite rise the same. I might give it another go with the substitute with another recipe, however I think I might stick to good old caster sugar.
Overall it was a great weekend of baking and domestic goodness in the kitchen.
Happy Baking x
