Poker night pink cupcakes?
A last minute request came in at the weekend from Chris. He was going to a poker night and could I make some muffins... Not my usual clientele i'll admit so I asked what flavour they wanted. The answer: raspberry and white chocolate. Not what I was expecting but who am I to judge?
When I add raspberries to my cake mix I tend to get flat or collapsed cakes. I have read that an extra egg may help stabilise the mixture so this was the perfect opportunity to give it a try
The result: a much better rise and no sinkage. Not massive domed peaks but respectable enough with a swirl of white chocolate ganache and a raspberry on top.
I couldn't resist putting them in pink foil cases to bring a feminine touch to the nachos and pizza. The boys were pretty full but managed to fit in a cake without too much encouragement required.

Amy, the cakes were truly fantastic! The white chocolate ganache was so tasty - Thank you for making them and I can't believe I only had the one!

Thanks Dan! I hear you were all pretty stuffed from the a la carte duck nachos but glad you made room for one :-) xx

Amy they look so tasty - Daniel was under strict instructions to bring me one home but apparently 'the dog ate it'... I have a sneaking suspicion that Daniel has changed his name to Dog! X

Amy I don't normally like raspberry very much. However, your cakes have changed that! They were delicious! I'd just eaten a big pizza and loads of nacho's yet still found room one of your cakes! (Ok i'm lying, I had 2!!). And the "dog" must have also eaten the cake that Michelle wanted brought back for her.. pesky dog! Cheers Amy, you're a baking goddess x
