Like most of the UK, we had our village street/barn party for the Jubilee celebrations in the cold and drizzle. The great British summer didn't stop us from having a get together, we just wore our cagoules, stylish I know. It was still good fun, if a bit damp.
Here are the cupcakes I made for the party, lemon with a home-made lemon curd filling and a new one, Earl Grey- which were totally delicious. I wasn't sure how the Earl Grey were going to go down with a mixed crowd of locals, mostly proper farmers perhaps not so inclined towards the more unusual cake flavours in life. But the cupcakes all disappeared fairly quickly, so I needn't have worried. Perhaps the farmers of Devon are more experimental in their tastes than I had imagined. and of course, I decorated a couple of cupcakes especially for our Lizzie, if she felt like dropping by.
The village where the farm is is having a street party (well, more of a winding lane party) I've been volunteered to make the celebration cake and decided to go with classic British flavours with a twist. I'm making two batches, lemon and earl grey tea.
The lemon curd is made (I love making lemon curd, so simple and super yummy) The lemon cupcakes are made, now I just need to apply A into B.
I've not made the Early Grey cupcakes before, but I love the flavours as a tea, and am intrigued to see how it turns out as a cake. I will report back.
I live in Devon with my Handsome husband, Darling boy, Little brother, and our Gorgeous girl, who are 6, 4 and nearly 2.
We live in our lovely barn conversion on the farm, alongside Handsome husband's beloved cattle, who are looking fabulous and happy in the fields. As well as wandering chickens and the occasional visiting sheep.
I run a cupcake company, Adventures in Cake, selling cupcakes and other scrumptious treats for bespoke orders, all of which keep me out of trouble.
This blog is about our adventures together, and the cakes we will be eating along the way.
I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures x
