Yesterday was my adult sons 24th birthday, time fly's by so fast,it only seems like yesterday that he was a cute little bubba now he has his own family.
But it doesn't matter how old my kids get i am still mum and i still like to bake for them, so instead of making a devils food cake like i usually do for my son i decided to make cupcakes and brownies.
I thought i'd share some photos of the baking i made, i don't bake a lot anymore and the photos i take are usually of soap not actual food so it was a nice change for me.
I found a lovely recipe which i changed slightly and the result was moist dark chocolate cupcakes, i made a chocolate mousse for the frosting as i hate a gritty icing made with icing sugar, next i made lemon and vanilla cupcakes with a lemon buttercream frosting, and lastly came the brownies, these are a huge hit in my family super moist and a little chewy with huge chunks of chocolate in them and just a dusting of icing to finish.
My son had a lovely evening relaxing with his family exchanging gifts.
