“NICE” REFINED SUGAR-FREE APPLE PARSNIP GHOST & MUMMY CUPCAKES WITH “SLIGHTLY NAUGHTY” VEGAN BUTTERCREAM (plus Halloween/All Souls’ round-up with links to recipes & FREE templates!)

Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, All Hallows’ Eve, Alla helgons dag/All Saints’ Day… yes, it was a big weekend for many people around the world. Here in Sweden, the “American version” of Halloween is a relatively new celebration, and not one as yet embraced or understood by all Swedes. Case in point, my husband’s grandmother called from the […]

VEGAN PEANUT BUTTER CUPCAKES (with vegan chocolate ganache)

And just when I thought I wasn’t going to buy any more cookbooks until I’d cooked my way through those I already owned, I found myself browsing through amazon‘s collection… and I decided that two more couldn’t hurt my bookshelf ;). So I placed an order for Paul Hollywood’s How to Bake  and Vegan Cupcakes Take […]

THE COMPLETE BLESSINGWAY ROUND-UP (with LOTS of FREE printables, great blessingway/baby shower activities + links to all recipes & tutorials)

So, Baby Cupcake is due to make an appearance in the world in less than 4 weeks (yes, less than 28 days!). After having had complications from the very start (plus a diagnosed high risk pregnancy condition) and spending months literally counting down the days to full-term, I finally find myself on its doorstep. And now […]

MAGIC VANILLA CUPCAKES WITH COCONUT FLOUR (free from dairy, lactose, gluten & refined sugar! PLUS vegan vanilla frosting!)

I am calling these cupcakes “magic” simply because I cannot believe that something lacking in gluten, lactose/dairy AND refined sugar can be so perfect. Unlike some of my super-talented friends out there (Live Blissful, Fork and Beans and No Naughties, to drop just a few names) I am rather unaccustomed to modifying recipes for sweet treats […]

SWEET CORN MUFFINS

I was inspired to make this recipe after seeing it right here on WordPress, but Project Pinterest has, as I have explained earlier, come to encompass all things of a must-do nature ;). Wanting to minimise stress and last-minute cooking for my Thanksgiving for Dummies afternoon, when I found this recipe not only was I delighted by the sound […]

VANILLA CUPCAKES WITH CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING (AKA spooktacular Halloween treats)

On any given day I am partial to baking, but I simply can’t resist the opportunity when the occasion actually calls for it. An open, English-speaking babies play group here hosts a casual Halloween party each year and parents are asked to bring snacks for sharing. Last year I made chocolate spiderweb cookies, this year […]

CUTE CUPCAKE CAPERS… DOWN UNDER

I recently had the absolute pleasure of partaking in The Cupcake Lady‘s decorating workshop, Cupcake Basics, in a suburb close to South Australia’s capital, Adelaide. As soon as we had confirmed our Australian travel plans back around October, I jumped online and booked my spot in the class (they sell out fast!). I was not […]
