White Chocolate & Raspberry Muffins

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well. Today’s recipe is something a little different and more on the healthy side. They are slightly dense but not sweet at all and the white chocolate chunks compliment this very well. They also look very pretty and would make for a perfect insta photo.

I will say that I thought of this idea before I actually checked the kitchen for ingredients and as you can see I didn’t have many raspberries left but there was just enough for the top. If you really like raspberries you could add some to the mixture for a more fruity flavour. I even think that these would be great for a healthy midday snack because they aren’t too sweet and are quite filling.

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese

Hi guys, the last time I tried to make a red velvet cake I was not as successful but these cupcakes are fantastic. When ever decorating with a sweet top I try to make sure the actual cake mixture is not too sweet so when you bite into the cupcake there’s a subtle sweetness from the cream cheese. 

I even used matching red cupcake cases

On top I’ve added some sugar coloured crystals which looked great in the pictures.

Oreo Cupcakes

Hey everyone, so I had a box of chocolate Oreos in the cupboard for ages because wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to bake with them. Then I just decided on Oreo Cupcakes!! The recipe is super simple and the buttetcream is actually to die for, like it tastes so so good and isn’t too sweet. These cupcakes would definitely go down well for the festive seasonal parties.
