I followed the Hummingbird Bakery recipe, which although a little complex, always turns out perfectly. I topped them with the traditional cream cheese icing (though I always add vanilla to stop it tasting too 'cheesy'), and then decorated them in two different ways - the six that were set to be boxed up were topped with sugar paper flowers and edible glitter, the others were sprinkled with the crumbs of another cake from the batch.
I packed them up and brought them into London for an afternoon spent strolling around the corridors of the V&A and a relaxed late lunch in South Kensington...followed by cupcakes of course!
What's your cupcake of choice? Let me know if you want me to keep posting my various creations :)
