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! ūüėõ
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! ūüėÄ

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) Рyou 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!

Cookies from Cake!

I was craving cookies the other day, but I was also feeling a little lazy to bake them, so when I found a packet of chocolate muffin mix in my pantry, it was perfect timing!

If you have a box cake mix, or muffin mix, you can make delicious soft cookies by¬†mixing the dry powder with the eggs and oil as per the recipe – don’t add the milk or water in the instructions.¬†Roll balls from the dough, or spoon the mixture onto your cookie sheet and bake like you would regular cookies!

Delicious!

Its Ginger Time!

These were a bit of an experimental taste test… four¬†of them are my divine¬†vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream, the four in the middle have crushed ginger biscuits baked into the batter, and the bottom four have a chunk of preserved ginger as a secret centre!

A Giant Rose Cake!

I saw a tutorial for a cake like this on Facebook several times in the last few weeks, so when my mommy darling’s birthday came along I thought it would be perfect to celebrate with her!

Fancies! Or Uber-truffles… Or Tribbles…?

 

This is the result of the beater test – MeeA and Anneke loved them!

I have no idea what to call these, though… They’re not cupcakes, they’re not cake pops, they’re not truffles. I think “fancies” sounds nice?

This dark chocolate shell is filled with caramel, shortbread bits, and chocolate cake!

The nice thing about this sweet treat is that it can’t go stale, like a cupcake, and you can serve them as a dessert – MeeA had hers with ice cream!
I’m working on a few different flavour combinations, and I haven’t found the right packaging yet – as soon as I have it sorted I’ll post a price list!
