National Cupcake Week… the cheaters guide!

This week is the perfect excuse to whip up a batch of cupcakes and scoff them with a nice cup of tea... here's how!

Lola’s cupcakes – yum!

Ditch the diet and revel in this week’s tasty treats celebration – National Cupcake Week! We were delighted when we found this out, so we set MFM writer Kimberley Smith a challenge to get baking (and bring them into the office the next day, obviously…)


However, if you want to whip up a batch of delicious calorific cupcakes but can’t be bothered with the mess and mayhem that comes with it (or if you’re more likely to create a small kitchen fire than a cupcake masterpiece) – cheat!

Yes, we said cheat (Shhhh!) and invest in this super handy cupcake maker by Breville? Cut out the mess and your time with this gadget which makes 8 cupcakes at a time – all you need to do is decorate and eat them! Plus it’s only £34.99…

Make sure you check out mouthwatering recipes from the Hummingbird Bakery for tips on how to create the perfect cupcake, or better still, leave it the experts and order a batch from Lola’s Kitchen

Kimberley is going to report back on her cupcake making attempt tomorrow – let us know if you’ve made any and send us pics!


Happy munching….
