Lee's Birthday Cakes

My fiance Lee had his birthday in October and while he was away enjoying himself in Munich at Oktoberfest, I stayed at home slaving over a hot oven making him these cupcakes awaiting his return.
They are Ginger Cupcakes topped with Ginger Fudge Buttercream and crystallised ginger.  Recipe from Primrose Bakery Book, they've got a lovely spiced autumnal flavour.

Cake Day!

We had a Cake Day at work, so it was the ideal opportunity to bake some cupcakes.
First batch was Rose flavoured cupcakes, this recipe is from the Primrose Bakery book.  It's one of my favourites, made them quite a few times now.  I just need to perfect my 'rose' piping technique!
Secondly, I made my firm favourites.....  Carrot Cupcakes.  Recipe is from Rachel Allen, Bake!  The recipe is to make a large carrot cake but works just as good as cupcakes.
Look forward to the next Cake Day!!
