*~^o^~ cheer*~^o^~ cheer*~^o^~ cheer

Time files!! I remember a year back when i first join Bake Along, i was just coming back to blogging. I enjoy baking and l learn lots of new recipes participating in this event. The hosts of this event are awesome ladies..they are encouraging, funny and most of they share their tested experiences of all the recipes. They are non other then these 3 lovely ladies 

This post is linked to the Bake-Along blog hop event hosted by Joyce of Kitchen Flavours , Lena of Frozen Wings and Zoe of Bake for Happy Kids

This is a favourite cupcake recipe of mine. When i am out of idea which recipe to follow i will always go back to the basic. This is a basic cupcake choice for me that i get from Nigella's book 'FEAST'. It is a gift from hubby.




简单的小杯蛋糕食谱是最受欢迎的. 而一个是简单又肯定成功的食谱哦 ;)
每每不知道要选择做哪个小杯蛋糕时我总是会做这个来自英国的性感甜点女神的Nigella Lawson的食谱. 她的书'FEAST', 是宝贝'爸'送的 :p

  19. Hi Doreen,

    These cupcakes are very cute.

    You are very neat and precise with all fondant sculpturing. I think you should open a bakery selling cute cupcakes. You will make lots of $$$ :D
