Sponge + buttercream icing = happiness
Next week is National Cupcake Week!
Can you think of anything more worthy of celebration? Well of course you can but still I invite you all to join me in praising this humble little sponge by baking up a batch or two or three for that matter. If you are not a baker then buy some and enjoy! I for one, need little encouragement but will use this celebratory opportunity to maybe try something new or that recipe Hubby Biscuit has been requesting or just to stare at the little beauties before I devour them.
I love cake.
It's really as simple as that. I love the alchemy of it. I love the word. I love the smell of it wafting through my home as that smell is home. The varieties are endless as is the choice to suit yourself and bake the cake that does it for you. Aah, the disappointment of bad cake, of horridly hard chocolate cake, of a bland powdery muffin! The heartache...
Now cupcakes...oh those itty bitty cupcakes...I love how the sponge looks like a really comfortable bed with it's buttercream duvet. I want to crawl into one and nap! Yes, I know, I sound like a loon but I am confident there are some of you out there who feel the same (not you Heather, I know, not you!). I have a bad case of the smittens!
Please join me next week in celebrating by baking some cupcakes and blogging about it. I'd love to see which flavours you choose and photos of your finished masterpieces because that's what each and everyone is, an ickle masterpiece! And always, most importantly, made with love!
