ok, so it's been a little while since i made some cupcakes and never one to dwell on or search for reasons, i remembered that we are going to visit my sister-in-law tomorrow who recently found out that she is pregnant with twins. so what better way to celebrate than with cupcakes. i used the chocolate chip recipe and also tried a coconut one too. however the coconut one could have had a more distinct coconut taste if you ask me - i do love that flavour. but perhaps others don't so much so maybe it's better off. I decided to be much more adventurous with the decorations than last time and experiment more with the icing bag and i'm really pleased with the results. i managed to create four different 'looks' for the cupcakes and each one in it's very own way is quite sophisticated and not as kiddy as my previous creations. i especially like the one with the malteser on top which i piped with little stars around it and surprisingly it wasn't that tricky once I got the hang of it. the others are with chocolate rice sprinkles, an oreo wafer stuck in the top and a cookie and star piped on top. anyway i'm looking forward to giving them to her tomorrow and hey, straight off the bat she gets three!
