And now for an important cupcake update. As some of you may have noticed, the cupcake challenge has been hotly contested between myself and cupcake girl at Daz's work. Up until now there has been no proof that cupcakes from the opponent were even baked. For all I knew it could have been Daz's very brilliant plan to get me to bake oodles of cupcakes. Well the joke would have been on him, I would have baked them regardless of fame and glory! Anyway, enough of my waffling.......here are the rival cupcakes.
Mint Chocolate Mousse cupcakes! (excuse the blurry photo, thankyou apple iphone!)
I didn't get a chance to sample them myself, but the word on the street was that they tasted exactly like a Mint Pattie. I pressed Daz a little further and got a description of the structure. Chocolate chip base (cupcake), chocolate mint mousse all topped with a piece of chocolate in the shape of a love heart. I must say these sound Divine. I wish I had gotten a bite myself, but I suppose a photo will do.
Onto other cupcake news. I am proud to announce the joyful arrival of my new cupcake courier, it was delivered at some point during Thursday and weighed in at under 5kg. She can hold 36 cupcakes and we've decided to name the new arrival Beryl. She's gorgeous and only cost me $39.95! You can buy you're very own Beryl from here. Here are some happy snaps of the new addition to the family. I was going to take some photo's of her having her first bath, but that just would have been weird...right?
I thought it would be sad to take photo's of a cupcake courier without any cupcakes in it, so I went to the bakery that is not named after a primary colour but shares it name with a venomous Australian snake and purchased a cupcake. It tasted horrible, but it was pretty, I never said I wasn't persuaded by looks.
To accompany my new cupcake courier, I finally got myself an offset spatula. From the awesome, but squeezy little shop in Melbourne - cake deco. I think I found my new money pit. I have grand plans for my new spatula, I've been thinking of all the different things I can finally make smooth and flat. Stay tuned for the forthcoming perfectly leveled posts!
Hope you've all enjoyed the update, that's whats been happening in cupcake town today!
