Knowing how quick and easy the Cola Cupcakes were, I ploughed through with these ones. (See the post here for tips about where to source cola/lemonade syrup). We already know from the Orange Blossom Cupcakes that I have my yellow food colouring to utilise - this time on an appropriate recipe. You would think in a store that is the size of a small farm there would be some sort of lemon flavoured decorations/sweet to decorate these with. Zilch.
In the end rainbow dust was the chosen garnish. A last minute decision due to desperation, which actually turned out to be a jolly good idea. Cakes as garish as lemonade cupcakes required equally garish cakes, icing and decoration.
Unfortunately the only photo I got was a sly shot of the cupcakes in my new cupcake holder, so I can merely describe the cakes and apologies for the frustration caused by the lack of a good visual.
Interestingly I spoke to a couple of buddy who are also baking-fluent and they haven't had great experiences with the Hummingbird recipes. Apart from the obscure few all the feedback I've received has been nothing short of fab. Not a dry crumb in the entire portfolio! I just can't wait to get started on book 2.
