Carrot Cupcakes with lemon cream cheese frosting

Traditional carrot cupcakes

My parents in law love the carrot cupcakes. I sometimes make carrot cupcakes for them.
I added pineapples so it has some fruity tropical flavour.
It makes a big difference,too.

It is perfect for kids who don't like carrots because it is super delicious!

I love the carrot cupcakes with a cup of black coffee. AWESOME!
Meet my recipes after I set up my blog design.
You can see me at market soon,too!!
Have a delicious day!

Exploring Cupcakes in Sydney #Part1

I've been traveling around Sydney for cupcake shop in Sydney.
So.. my weekends are very busy but it is worth it. Me and my husband visited the cupcake stall in Rocks market last Saturday. Unfortunately, I didn't take a photo of the cupcake stall. I bought 5 mini cupcakes; strawberry, lemon, cinnamon latte, berry choc, mint chocolate. Except for chocolate based cupcakes, strawberry, lemon and cinnamon latte cupcakes were so dry.. I couldn't find any flavour of strawberry in my stawberry cupcake. Um..... Despite of fact that cupcakes were not impressive, the shop looked busy and people walking next to the shop seemed not to be able to just pass it.

Anyway, I went to the Sparkle cupcakery located in Surry hill.
I like the interior design of the shop. Simple. Just the way I like.
I've seen so many cupcake shops with the pretty pink colour theme..
Princess style's shops..
but sometimes men might feel not comfortable to walk in the princess's shop like.
hahahaha.. my husband is quite sensitive about it.

Cupcakes!! Well.. if you are a serious cupcake lover, you will notice that this design of cupcakes is exactly SAME as the 'Sprinkles' cupcake shop in U.S.A.
Similar names : Sparkles / Sprinkles
Similar design : Simple frosting with a dot which shows you a flavour of a cupcake.
It was like a serious replica! No offence.. but as a fan of the Sprinkles.. I was shocked when I saw the cupcakes in 'Sparkles.'

I love the interior!!

We ordered the green tea bubble cupcake(above) and white choc strawberry cupcake.

I opened my greentea bubble cupcake and I found the BUBBLES.. hahaha
It was tapioca pearls..
The cake was a bit dry.
I was hoping the frosting had the green tea flavour, too.
It could've been nicer.

My fussy husband didn't like his white chocolate strawberry cupcake.
He said it was not moist at all and lack of the strawberry flavour.

I should've tried more cupcakes so I could figure out their strong points. Um.. I can say, the image of the Sparkles cupcakery(similar to my blog's name -_-) is luxurious and sophisticated.

It is always good to spend my precious weekends with cupcakes ...and with my lovely husband, too.
Have a great day with a delicious cupcakeswith coffee!!! I will post Cupcakeshop trip #Part Two next time.

Cappuccino Cupcakes

ChocoLatte Cupcakes

Dark chocolate cupcakes filled with dark chocolate ganache + coffee Kahlua buttercream frosting

I can say, they are sooo rich in flavour. I love cupcakes full of joyful flavour.
I still have to work on the recipe to make it fantastic!!
I got some reviews after making my new cupcakes.
I am always glad to hear honest reviews so I can do better next time.

When I tried the chocolatte with my husband, we all went.."um~"
which is a good sign from my picky husband :-P

Before I leave, I changed my old blog name "sweetcupkate" to "sugarcupcakery."
Some of my photos still have the old blog address on them.
I hope you don't get confused :-D
See ya!!

Banana Vanilla Cupcakes - 'Banilla'

 Banilla Cupcakes - Banana cakes with Vanilla butter cream frosting

Moist banana cakes with some spices... and lovely vanilla frosting.
Bananas' season has ended... but my customer wanted banana cakes for birthday cupcakes.
waiting for fruits in season..
They are always full of flavour!!

I made hearts on the top with sugar fondants.
It is very fun to work with and great for decoration..
If you want to make your cupcakes more special and give them some theme,
Working with sugar fondant is a good way to present your idea.

These cupcakes are for my dear friend.
These are banana cakes and dark chocolate mud cake.
I also decorated one cupcake with a sugar rose I made..
I wrote friend's Korean name on a cupcake with chocolate icing.. hoping
she feels special when she recieved this cupcakes' box.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.
I hope you have a delicious day!!

Enjoy my twisted version of Red velvet cupcakes

Yum. Each cupcake has its own face. Who's mine?

Red velvet Cupcakes

Red velvet Cupcakes with Different Decoration

Red velvet cupcakes are supposed to have white icing which symbolize 'Bride'
I used cream cheese frosting with pink colour so it is not traditional style of Red velvet cupcakes
but inside is still redish chocolate cakes.

I decorated cupcakes with my lovely sugar fondant which I made last time.
So much fun to make decoration with sugar fondant.
