These cupcakes were made from blackberries foraged from the hedgerows and apples grown in the garden. This got me thinking about what other interesting things I could potentially forage/grow to put in cakes. Raspberries and strawberries would be the obvious choices. However in terms of foraging for more interesting things like bilberries and cranberries.. after some research I came to the conclusion that I would most likely end up poisoning someone. So many berries look alike and anyone who knows me knows it would be just my luck to accidentally confuse the deadly ones with the safe ones!
I am back…temporarily. Since my last blog post I have completed my first year of nurse training and I go back to start my second year in a week! I have been staying at home for the summer holidays and working in the local hospital as an auxiliary nurse.While being at home I thought I should make the most of having a proper kitchen to bake in before I go back to the joys of living in student halls.
