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!

Beater Testers Wanted!

I have something new – something uber-decadent, that you can’t eat more than one of – and I am going to need a few people to try them for me…

I love Pinterest (you can find me there), and there are SOOO many recipes and ideas that I want to try!
I spotted something there a while ago that I am going to try and make my own version of… I just don’t know what I’m going to call them yet!

So if you’re a fan of chocolate and caramel, and you would like to try 6 (not 12) of something for me, leave a comment!

The terms of beater testing are as follows:

  • If you want to try this test, there’s a small price to cover the cost of the ingredients.
  • You must leave a comment on this post to tell me which one you would like to try.
  • I will then email you further details – an invoice, my EFT details, a collection date and my address and directions.
  • Your order will have to be collected from me in Midrand.
  • I will specify the collection date for the beta test.
  • Biscuits and sweets can wait for collection, but cakes, cheesecakes and cupcakes need to be collected the day they are baked, or a day later at most.
  • After you’ve sampled your beater test order, you must email me, write a blog post, or leave a comment and tell me what you thought – this is imperative as this is the whole point behind the beater-testing!
