I learnt a valuable lesson making these: Even though 'vanilla ice cream' is sort of like the basic ice cream without flavour and colour, this does not mean that vanilla yoghurt is the same! This recipe had yoghurt in the mixture, and placed on top. I wondered why the yoghurt on top kept dripping down and wasn't all plump like the ones in the photo - and that would have explained why... This is what they were supposed to look like:
These were from the 'Simple and Healthy' section of the cupcake book, and they were really yummy, despite using the wrong yoghurt on top! My son and I both share a passion for blueberries, and we both enjoyed eating these!
And this is what mine looked like ->
Mine look more... Cluttered. But... Fuller, with yellow patties instead of pale green (can't go out buying different coloured cases every time I bake - that would be silly)
There was some good feedback with the banana split cupcakes. The banana slices on top kept falling over a bit, though, which for the perfectionist like me can be frustrating! But, once the chocolate was melted over the top, you couldn't really tell :)
baking and decorating cupcakes... Can you tell? :)
