The Gallery: Cake

 Of course, there had to be a birthday cake in today’s post (not because it’s anyone’s birthday, just because that’s what I think of when I hear ‘cake’), so let’s get that out of the way first:

But really, this post is about cupcakes. See, I don’t understand cupcakes… maybe the ones I’ve had just haven’t been up to scratch, but they mystify me. They’re often dry and tasteless, the best bit about them being the icing and decoration!


Don’t get me wrong, I love the decoration, it’s pretty in some cases, super impressive in others, and they look stunning and delicious, or even too good to eat! But I’m not one for just looking at them, and when I bite into it I want it to taste good. I want it to be moist (however much I hate that word!) and tasty and generally delicious.

I have never experienced a cupcake that met my expectations when I ate it. That makes me sad. I so desperately want to get on the “I love cupcakes” bandwagon! I want to rave about them like so many others do.

But then, on the flip side, it’s probably a good thing that I don’t love cupcakes, it would be just one more thing to try to resist in the battle against the bulge!

What are your feelings on cupcakes?

    I do think cupcakes are made to be pretty little cakes. I personally would prefer a big huge cake!

    I am totally with you on the cupcake issue. There is more often than not too much buttercream and icing. I am going to start playing around with cupcakes to make them more interesting to eat as well as look pretty.

    I love cupcakes, they look amazing and are so pretty, but I am not a huge fan of all that icing on top x

    You’ve clearly not had a decent cupcake my friend! Make properly they are divine, but I grant you the ones you tend to buy in the shops are pretty tasteless 🙁

      Maybe I need to try and make my own!

    Oh I wish I could say the same, I am all about the cake
