A friend of mine asked me to make some cakes for her baby shower, and that seemed like a great opportunity to make my favourite chocolate cupcakes – recipe here.
A few weeks ago it was a friend’s birthday. There’s a whole big in-joke about doughnuts, and having spent 45 minutes of my lunch hour utterly failing to find a single card featuring doughnut (by the end I would’ve settled for a rubbish one), I decided to make my own. I don’t know why that wasn’t my decision from the beginning – handmade cards are always so much better and more appreciated than a shop-bought one. I used watercolour and ink for the design on the front – and picked an envelope and inside lining to match the icing.
Happy Doughnut Day, Lou!
