Mini Cupcakes

The latest in baking - mini cupcakes. I like them and they are very morish. I ate 2 `just to taste them' without thinking! I could have ate a few more but stopped myself - for the time being anyway.

Chocolate cola cake


I made this rather scrumptious cake from a James Martin recipe. The cola made it very moist. I will put the recipe up shortly as I think this is a good easy and tasty cake to make. The birthday Erin said `Its the best choclate cake ever. Its really rich but also moist.' Now thats a compliment and a half!
