Chocolates, cupcakes and red roses are so last year; the iced biscuit is where it’s at. I mean, who wouldn’t love one of these little guys as a gift? They are just so damn cute.
Maybe I am biased; I will be the first to admit that I am a bit of a whale fanatic. You may have noticed my whale measuring cups and plate making an appearance in many of my blog photos.
My name is Anna and I am a coffee addict.
It’s the first thing I think about when I wake up and I honestly don’t think I can remember the last day that I went without a cup.
However it is not just coffee in its liquid form that I love; I am a fan of anything coffee flavoured, whether it’s a dollop of tiramisu, a piece of coffee flavoured chocolate or a slice of classic coffee cake.
Therefore I was really excited when I came across these coffee cupcakes whilst perusing Frances Quinn’s cookery book Quinntesential Baking the other day. Frances was the winner of the 2013 series of The Great British Bake Off and I have to say that she is one of my favourite ever contestants. Every week she would come up with something quirky and fun to present to the judges and her whimsical style of baking is definitely something I look to for inspiration.
