Anyone For Some “Beater Testing”?

Why “beater testing”?

Well, apart from the play on words (as in “beta test”) – testing recipes its expensive, and my loved ones are a little biased when I ask them what they think! 😛
This way, I get to work out exactly how long a new recipe will take, and how much it will cost, and I get unbiased feedback on whether a new recipe is a good one or not! 😀

I am planning on adding a range of sexy gourmet muffins to my repertoire, and I need FIVE people to test some new recipes for me!

For R108 (the cost of the ingredients) – you get a box of 12 gourmet muffins, in 6 different flavours:

Lemon crystal muffins
Banana walnut muffins
Jammy almond muffins
Pumpkin muffins
Cranberry orange muffins
Apple strudel muffins

Your test box must be collected from me on Saturday 15 July between 8am and 10am.
Then on Monday July 17th I will send you a few questions about your beater test to help me decide which flavours are a hit, and which are a miss!
If the date and time suits you – please contact me with your name and email address!

May the Fourth Be With You!

Happy Star Wars Day! 😀

I am a big Star Wars fan, as are my son and husband, having seen the movies many times over. As I have never done a cake or cupcakes with this theme myself (it’s a copyrighted theme), I thought I would share with you some of the incredible cakes, cupcakes, and sugar art I have seen, that honour this fabulous theme!

Cake with F•R•I•E•N•D•S

I recently started watching F•R•I•E•N•D•S on Showmax, and even though I have seen the show from beginning to end more than a couple of times – I still giggle like a lunatic!
Then I started seeing cakes with “Friends” as a theme popping up in my social media timeline, so its not just me who still loves the show! 😀
Here are several from CakesDecor.com to show you what a fun cake theme it can be!

You can click on each picture to go and take a look at the cake. 🙂

Have a #CupcakeForMyHero to Spread Hope

I am DEFINITELY going to be supporting this particularly delicious initiative for sure – and I have a loooong list of heroes I will be writing on my hand!
Get yourself to Brooklyn Mall this weekend to support their campaign!

Cancer is primarily seen as an adult disease, however more and more children are being diagnosed. If detected early it is highly treatable, but locally it is estimated that less than half of children with cancer are diagnosed, and many of those who are diagnosed are in advanced stages of illness.

This Childhood Cancer Awareness Day, Mugg & Bean will construct a Wall of Generosity to bring South Africans together in support of those who have been affected by cancer at Brooklyn Mall, Pretoria on 24 and 25 September 2016.
Each visitor will receive a complimentary cupcake from the wall and be asked to write down the name of their ‘cancer hero’ – someone they know who has battled cancer – on their hand, and then pose for a picture holding up the cupcake with the other hand.

“We want to create something special where everyone can come together to spread hope; hope for those who have been affected, for those who are battling the disease and hope for the future,” said Lee-Ann Cullingworth, Marketing Executive for Mugg & Bean.
“By driving the conversation, we hope to raise awareness of the early warning signs to equip South Africans with the knowledge to identify possible symptoms and act quickly to ultimately save lives.”

The Wall of Generosity forms part of Mugg & Bean’s annual Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer initiative in support of Cupcakes of HOPE that aims to raise awareness and funds for families in need of assistance. #CupcakesForHope 

In addition to bringing together a community of supporters, Mugg & Bean also introduced a lemon meringue cupcake to its menu for the month of September 2016. The sweet treat is offering consumers a simple way to help change and save lives – all proceeds generated from the cupcake sales will be donated to Cupcakes of HOPE.

“We’ve surpassed our 2015 donation of R100,000 within the first week,” says Cullingworth. “We’re humbled by the phenomenal response and honoured to be part of such a worthy cause.”

To support Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer, enjoy your lemon meringue #CupcakeForMyHero at any Mugg & Bean, upload your picture of support using the hashtag to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, spread the generosity by donating to the cause or visit The Wall of Generosity on 24 – 25 September between 09:00 – 17:00 at Brooklyn Mall.
