I’ve caught the flu after ions and ions. Haven’t felt so bad in forever and decided that today that I have the energy to actually do something in and about the house and received a polite request from Mike to make something sweet for him 🙂
Since I’m avoiding leaving the house until I need to (tomorrow for work) I have scavenged what I had in the house and decided to make lemon and honey cupcakes with some blue fondant 😀
INGREDIENTS: makes 10
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup flour
1 pinch salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 piece of ginger (as big as the top part of your thumb)
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
zest of a lemon
1tbsp of honey and lemon juice
edible glitter (optional)
Put the milk in a bowl with the ginger and heat it in the microwave for 1 minute. Let it cool completely. Turn oven on 180° and line a cupcake tray. Beat butter and sugar together and add one egg at the time. Combine the dry ingredients in one bowl. Take the ginger out of the milk and add the honey, lemon and zest. Add the flour to the butter and alternate with the milk. Pour the batter in the cupcake tray and put in the oven for 18 minutes. Let them cool.
Now roll out the fondant. I used a stencil to make some shapes on the surface. Place it on top of the fondant and roll to impress the images on the fondant.
Then with a cookie cutter or a glass, cut circles in the fondant to make the cupcake toppers. If you have any sprinkle some edible glitter on them 🙂
Now mix the extra honey and lemon juice in a small bowl and pour some over each cupcake and cover with the fondant toppers. Make sure it cover the whole surface evenly.
Enjoy ciao for now! xox
