Rainbow Cupcakes

Happy 2013 to all!!! Hope each and every one of you had a lovely break and was able to spend quality time with loved ones whether it was going away on vacation or simply staying at home and enjoying good company. My wish for my family, friends and readers is a 2013 filled with memorable moments, side-splitting laughter, happiness, contentment and success. Remember…if your day or year isn’t going as great as you’d hoped or you just feeling low on “happy hormones” you have the power to change it. I completely believe that your happiness is completely up to you (and our creator of course). It’s quite simple…if you want to be happy, you will be. Learn to appreciate what you have instead of dwelling on what you don’t. Continue reading

Chocolate Cupcakes

What a manic, emotional-rollercoster of a two weeks…I left my second home and family at marcusbrewster and joined the fabulous team at The Phoenix Partnership. For those of you who don’t know, I’m in the ever-exciting and unpredictable PR industry. During my third year of studying Public Relations Management at CPUT I completed my internship at marcusbrewster,was thereafter offered a permanent position and have been with the agency ever since – 4years!  Continue reading

White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

The best part of any cupcake is definitely the frosting and there are just so many options and variations, from melted chocolate to traditional buttercream icing. To give the traditional frosting a bit of a twist I decided to try the White Chocolate Buttercream frosting, and here’s how I did it…

Ingredients:

125g butter

4 cups icing sugar

3 tbs milk

100g white chocolate (I used Cadbury Dream)

Method:

1. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave (remember to keep monitoring and stirring). Set aside.

2. Cream the butter with an electric mixer until soft.

3. Gradually add two cups of icing sugar and the milk, and mix until combined.

4. Add the rest of the icing sugar and mix thoroughly.

5. Lastly, stir in the white chocolate.

NB: Add more milk if the icing is too thick.

Remember to have fun with your piping and decorations!

Happy Frosting! 🙂
