Everything but cupcakes (for once! haha)

Sadly, not everything in this life are Cupcakes... And that means that sometimes I also bake other stuff... Lately, I've baked shortbread with chocolate for my fiancé's colleagues, scones for breakfast, mince pies, etc...

And as I took pictures of everything, I want to share them :)

Let's start with the Shortbread.
I used this amazing recipe from Joy of Baking.
But, as I didn't have enough chocolate to cover them (how typical...), I decided to decorate them "my way"... haha...

This is how they looked like before being baked:

Then... them cooling down...

And then... chocolate mayhem... Yes, I'm clumsy and my hands tremble too much... Thank God I don't work as a surgeon for a living!!!!


Ready to travel to Deutsche Bank!

They were delicious (as you can imagine, my fiancé didn't take all the cookies to his job... as some were already in our stomachs!!!)

These are my scones! I followed this GoodFood recipe... however, it's supposed to produce 9 scones and I (somehow) ended up with 18... whatever... haha

I didn't buy the Clotted Cream (5€ for a tiny jar just because it's imported?? no way!!!) so I used double cream and jam for the filling.

And these are my (horrible-messy-looking) mince pies. I followed this GoodFood recipe, as I had previously bought a jar of MinceMeat (YUM!!!!!!!)

It was a bit of a disaster, but they were deliciouuuuuuuuuuus!!!!!!!

And, finally, as I also bake savoury things (sometimes...), I want to show you my "leek and potato pie". I used this recipe from Good Food but using puff pastry instead of shortcrust (I arrived quite late from my lectures and didn't have time to prepare the shortcrust... moreover, using puff pastry means that I only baked it for 20 mins)


Well... that's basically all (for now) haha

More cupcakes (and other recipes) coming soon!!!!!!

  1. The cupcake evolved in the United States in the 19th century, and it was revolutionary because of the amount of time it saved in the kitchen. There was a shift from weighing out ingredients when baking to measuring out ingredients.McDVOICE
