When in doubt make Chocolate cakes

It has been wet, grey and miserable day and my plans did not go as they should today.   So I thought I would do a little bit of baking.   The recipe was for Chocolate Muffins, but they didn't look like the muffins you can get in the shop so I added a little bit of chocolate icing to make them into cup cakes.   They are by no means perfect but they taste very scrummy.


  1. chocolate: girls best friend!!!

  2. They look pretty good to me! Can you package some up and send them over to Singapore?!?

  3. Hmmm, I don't think baking is a mood imnprover for me... I would have been upset about them not turning out the way I wanted but you are so much better at dealing with things and just made them into something else. Well done. I'm sure they were delicious!
