Gingerbread Cupcakes

I've been looking for an excuse to make these and at last I have one... Lou's birthday... and these were on time (unlike her present which still sits on my dining room table).

This is another recipe from "The Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days: Recipes to make every day special". 

If you like Gingerbread you should like these, I think they could be one of my favourites. Although I have an urge to try one without the icing swimming in a big bowl of custard...mmmmm.


A freebie for the boss

I've worked with Grahame for a number of years and at various companies. He may have dropped me in it on occasion but overall he is a good person to work for, hence if he has a job going that's right for me I'll apply for it.

Anyway, after bragging about my newly found cake skills I managed to foolishly volunteer myself to make a cake for his step sons birthday. I say foolishly because I only had a few days in which to do it and I already had a hectic week. Nevertheless, I did the best I could with the time I had.

Can you tell what it is yet?

Yes I think some parts could have been better but you can tell what it is right?

I was so short on time Mr Chris actually carved and decorated the controller for me. I had to redo some bits but I think he did an amazing job and the cake wouldn't look complete without it. He is a life saver :)

As the title suggests, I didn't charge for this cake but not because Grahame is one of my managers. In the time I've worked for him he has helped me through some pretty tough times and given me some sound advice, this was the least I could do to show my appreciation.
