Cupcakes!

Soooo, I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been really busy with my exams lately and because of that, I haven’t had much time to hang out with my friends. I had a week with no exams so I slept over at my friend’s house and since we didn’t know what we could do there, we came down to the idea that we should bake something.

After a long long time, searching through the internet for recipes, we went with cupcakes. I don’t have much experiences with cupcakes as I’m not a really big fan of them cause they’re too sweet. I’m not one that likes food which are very sweet ): We initially wanted to bake red velvet cupcakes but after we found out that it needs lots of food colouring to make it red, we skipped it and went with chocolate banana cupcakes instead. I never knew cupcakes were so easy to make! It took us less than half an hour to make the batter and about less than an hour to finish off everything, including the baking. We used small cupcake cups cause we find that it would look cute and we would have more to give out to our friends, of course :b

After finishing the chocolate banana cupcakes, we still had a lot of free time left, so we looked for more recipes and made lemon curd cupcakes after. These taste like heaven! I’m also not a big fan of chocolate flavoured things, besides chocolate itself, so I prefer the lemon curd ones. I’m a very picky eater :b So, after we’ve done baking all the cupcakes, we moved on to the best part, the icing! I have to admit, I’ve never really done icing before so my first one on these cupcakes were a little.. ugly compared to my friend’s! I didn’t take a picture to show, cause it was bad and I didn’t want to let anyone see it, so I swallowed it before anyone saw it :b haha.

We brought the cupcakes and to school the next day and gave them to our friends and they loved it! I feel like baking more of the lemon curd ones cause I just can’t get enough of them! Here are some pictures to share! 😀
