It was my two year anniversary with my partner on the weekend and cupcakes seemed the obvious choice. We recently fell in love with disneys Up (the cutest love story ever!) so I wanted to incorporate that. Vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream.
I dont think the house was that good but I had limited time and i’m not that great drawing!
Next time I think I would spend more time on the background drawings and do mini cupcakes!
Happy Mothers Day to all the amazing mums today!
I took my mum for lunch and made her some homemade cupcakes. Red velvet with pink vanilla buttercream. You can find the recipe on my first ever post This is my first proper attempt at piping icing properly? Do you think it’s an okay attempt? I’m determined to master it!
Enjoy your day mums!
Lemon & Mint Turkey Meatballs. Yum.
These are so fresh, so tasty and so good for you!
I love fresh mint, but before this recipe I couldn’t imagine having it on anything other than a good bit of lamb. This does actually work really well with the lemon and turkey and it’s my new ultimate meatball recipe!
- 500g fresh lean turkey mince
- 1 small red onion, very finely chopped
- grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
- 3 tbsp finely chopped fresh mint
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 1 egg, beaten
Step One: Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, making sure the mint and lemon are spread evenly throughout the turkey mince.
Step Two: Divide into small meatballs. I made about 20 with this amount of meat, but it’s up to you how big you like them! Cover and chill for a couple of hours because they are more likely to hold their shape.
Step Three: Cook! Cook in a frying pan with a little bit of oil (I use my trusted 1 cal spray!) and make sure you turn every couple of minutes. Cooked till piping hot and not pink in the middle.
These are so nice! You could quite easily turn these into some nice burgers as well!
