So, I got THIS book, & after drooling over the pages, I decided to attempt vanilla cupcakes with frosting. I used blue colouring for them but my icing didnt quite go to plan, see above!!! I took a picture of them next to the photo in the book so you can see what they are 'meant' to look like!! Even if they didnt go to plan, they were delish!!
My 2nd attempt turned out better, delish again & the frosting held better, however I think the trick is using a mixer rather than doing it by hand, so I guess Im gonna have to dig the mixer out for the next ones!!
