I wasn’t sure I was going to make this months SABH. March has been a bit of a blur in the DWAS household. With Stud’s parents arriving the first weekend, Stud’s birthday the weekend after, a 5 night stint in Melbourne for Grand Prix and then our US trip next weekend, this was really the only free time we had to get everything in order ready for said trip…..and I got sick. Argh!!! Pity party over, I did decide to whip up a little batch of Easter cupcakes with a twist. Remember the ones I made last year? I thought I’d go with the same principal but make then a little nostalgic, and a little bit naughty(er). You see this months hop is a Cocktail Party theme, and in our trip to Melbourne last weekend, a night at Polly produced a “Violet Crumble Martini”. Yes, you read that right. It...

Easter feaster – to add to your chocolate hangover

I know I’m a little slow on the uptake with posting these recipes, but life can really get in the way of blogging sometimes and a long weekend is not for being stuck at the dining table posting recipes.

Chocolate caramel Easter egg cupcakes

Happy Easter peeps 😀 Well as you know, the supermarkets (and Sydney in general) have been packed with Easter goodies since about, oh I don’t know, JANUARY! So although it’s the weekend of chocolate, I’m almost all chocolated out……almost. So here’s a little recipe that uses a few of your leftover eggs and jazzes them up a bit. Everyone loves a cupcake with a surprise, and this little baby opens up to a caramel filled egg. JOY! The icing also has flecks of crunchie through it. And let’s face it, who DOESN’T love sprinkles??? Warning to parents: your kids may be hyper after this cupcake. For this, I take no responsibility :/ feed them at your own risk!!
