I’ve only just started to make cupcakes again. The lovely Jemma of Iced Jems gave me a crash course in her pretty 1950s kitchen and I haven’t looked back. I’m not generally one for too sickly sweet desserts so when I saw this lavender cupcakes recipe in the “hummingbird bakery” Cook book I knew I HAD to try it. I love using lavender and rose in my baking, rose macarons are probably my all time favourite flavour and in all honesty these are the best flavoured cupcakes I’ve ever tried. The dried lavender flowers are infused with the milk for both the cake and icing mixtures thus creating a real delicate flavour. I used the baking cups I got from the Iced Jems shop as I love the way you can un pleat the cases to create a little plate almost. This recipe is most certainly a keeper!

For my 28th birthday I decided I wanted a little family bbq and garden party using all homemade food. James made his famous burgers for the bbq made using local beef and handmade sesame seed wholemeal cobs. He also created some lovely spicy chicken skewers filled to the brim with vegetables and served with a fresh tzatziki. One of our favourite salad recipes is the date and pitta salad recipe from our “Persiana” cookbook so a huge bowl of that was prepared for the table. A plate of cured meats and seasoned olives sat beside a bowl of Greek salad and everyone had a glass of prosecco and strawberries. For dessert I raided the Iced Jems store and came away with this gorgeous afternoon tea stand, silicone teacup cupcakes cases, pretty decorative windmills and the strawberry milkshake flavoured icing 💕 I piled the stand high with cupcakes, macarons, cherries, strawberries and scones with clotted cream. Nothing beats a table full of homemade food and watching our nephew took into healthier bbq alternatives made by our fair hands from scratch.
