Scrumptious - especially, I'd say, the whisky ones! Looking at those made me think '1950s'; now just where are my Rockabilly skirt and Audrey Hepburn sunglasses...?  Wink

Yours,

Iron Bru and cake, a fantastic combination!

I heartily approve of cake, great stuff! Keep it up!

I would gladly but I am afraid they´d spoil during shipping. I can give you the recipe instead.

Oh me, oh my; all those wonderful looking cakes an me with diabetes. BTW here in South Africa there is a very popular desert called malva pudding. it's really more like a cake than a pudding, but "pudding" is a generic term for dessert.

If you, or anyone else, would like to give it a go the recipe is available on the internet under that name.

Have you tried making mug cakes? Very quick, very easy, very tasty and because you only make one (literally in a mug) you don't have to feel guilty when you scoff the lot ... Share? I don't think I fully understand that concept in relation to cake.

Favourite mug cake recipe:
1/4 cup self-raising flour
1/4 cup castor sugar
1/8 cup cocoa powder
1 medium egg
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Mix the dry ingredients together.  Mix the wet ingredients together. Mix wet and dry mixes together. Put into a microwaveable mug. Put mug into centre of microwave and cook for one and a half minutes, check cake is cooked (a skewer should come out clean but if you overcook it gets a bit rubbery). Eat. Decide to diet tomorrow!

Those meringue cupcakes look cute and tasty.
Have you considered making chocolate spoons to eat them with?  I bought a silicon mould that makes teaspoons and is great fun for edible decoration of desserts.  (Although to be honest they don't make very effective cutlery, I really only got them as an excuse to melt chocolate.)

I don't have molds and I am not use how one eata caje with a spoon Wink
If you need an excuse to melt chocolate i suggest making a batch of choco chip cupcakes, then melt chocolate and dip tops of the cakes in it. It will harden on the cake and be a delicious topping (that also prevents the cakes from drying out)

Keep up the variety.  Some toppings, etc may be more popular than others, but try a lot of different ones & see which ones are preferred.  Keep records...
