    Recipe: Honey and Lemon Cupcakes

    It’s been such a long time since I’ve made cupcakes but last weekend I decided to whip up a batch to take to a roast dinner with extended family. It also gave me a chance to test out my Russian piping tips which I was given for my birthday. This was only my second attempt at using them and I definitely need to practise a little more but I do love the effect that they give. These cakes are easy to make and you can make them look as fancy as you like by experimenting with the icing. Easy to make with hit of zesty lemon.
