Just to keep you updated…

I’d like to apologise for my lack of posts over the last couple of weeks but I haven’t been near the computer or the kitchen all that much because my Grandad passed away last Tuesday so I haven’t really felt up to doing anything

Once everything sorts itself back out I’ll get back to baking and posting

 

Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hello! Sorry I haven’t posted anything recently, I’ve been pretty busy and haven’t been baking very much.

Anyway, last weekend I made these Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies from Chef in Training and they turned out pretty well! I changed a few things from their recipe but they still worked fine.

I used all brown sugar for my biscuits (because we had no caster sugar)
I used about 1/4 cup of fresh orange juice instead of just 2 teaspoons, and I used about 1 1/2 tablespoons of orange zest instead of just 1
and finally I used chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips (just smashed up a 200g block of dark chocolate) because chocolate chips are twice as expensive as a block of chocolate and you get half as much… so yeah!

I didn’t take any photos, sorry. Hopefully I’ll do some more baking in the week and have something a bit more interesting to talk about!

Hi I’m Kat and I’m obsessed with buying cupcake cases…

This is my collection of cupcake cases (or patty pans as I call them) I keep them all in their own little box ready to be used, but I never seem to use any of them, I just keep buying more hahaha. 
The ones in the box with the cupcake toppers were a birthday present, and the rest I’ve just bought for myself over the last couple of years. I like the cardboard “cups” because you don’t have to hunt in the cupboard for a muffin tin, they just sit on a baking tray. They look pretty too, the only annoying thing is you have to rip them to get the cake out which is a shame. But oh well, at least they looked nice once haha. I have lots of Christmas themed ones because I always have brilliant ideas to make Christmas cupcakes for people and then I never end up making them because I’m too busy baking other things (like gingerbread)
I’m actually looking on ebay right now for some more… Oh dear hahaha I think I need to go on that show “My Crazy Obsession” !!!
