Roopa After what felt like ages, I’ve had the opportunity to bake something! I had finals through April, and a practicum (and subsequent lack of kitchen) through May, and then some travelling around at the start of June. For my first foray back into baking, I wanted to try something new! I found this recipe for … More Purple Velvet Cupcakes
Roopa Despite living in different provinces, Alana and I seem to be on the same wavelength in regards to baking with mini eggs. She just made these mini egg cookies and I made cupcakes! I wanted to make them spring-like so I decided to go with a lemon icing. EGGLESS VANILLA CUPCAKES (24 medium) 1-¾ cups … More Easter Mini Egg Cupcakes
Roopa I always thought that the correct spelling was ‘St. Patty’s Day’ because it was from St. Patrick. I recently found out that the correct spelling is actually St. Paddy’s because it’s actually from Padraig, the Gaelic spelling. Fun fact of the day! Having just come back from Ireland, I felt compelled to make some celebratory cupcakes. … More St. Paddy’s Day Cupcakes
Alana Friday was was my last day of clinical (WOOOOO!), so being a good nursing student I brought cupcakes to thank the unit staff. I wanted to do something in Christmas spirit, so I figured some bright colours it would be easier than try and put together a more complicated recipe.

The ones I tried were adapted from ‘Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World’ with some … More Red Velvet Cupcakes
NUTELLA CUPCAKES Roopa I made a batch of these cupcakes with some leftover icing from this cake. ❤ Nutella.
Roopa I have a few people to make cupcakes for this week, and they told me to be creative, so I decided to give PB&J cupcakes a try. It’s pretty much my favourite so I figured I really couldn’t go wrong. I used a vanilla base with a peanut butter white chocolate icing, and filled … More PB&J Cupcakes
CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES WITH WHIPPED CREAM TOPPING. Roopa I made a batch of these and covered them in whipped cream and raspberries. Simple, but delicious. I always add vanilla and a little bit of granulated sugar to my whipped cream, which I think makes a big difference.
Roopa I still had some leftover ingredients from the butterbeer cupcakes, so I decided to try yet another version. I used more cream soda in the cupcakes, and some clarified butter as well for a more potent buttery taste. I was lazy to make icing so I just topped them with some whipped cream (that … More Butterbeer Cupcakes: Version 3
