I like the look of the cream cheese one best, this is what I did today with a milk based one:

There are blueberry & vanilla sponge made with sweetner & sugar & very low fat spread.




I'm caling them "Happy Cakes For When You Are Blue"



They will have bright blue smiley faces on them in a bit...I love blue food.

Cream cheese icing is the best. It's a little firmer and pipes pretty well. And it has cream cheese in it. Can't go wrong with cream cheese (unless you're vegan or something).


Then you use vegan cream cheese! Which I think tastes better any way.




(And thats from someone who would and does put bacon on everything. So uh...not very vegan at all)

Yeah Tofutti 'Better Than Cream Cheese' is pretty stand-up. Other vegan things have their limitations but their fake cream cheese is pretty good.

I feel like since I am posting I should comment on icing but typically I just use some combination of butter/cream cheese, beat it until smooth, then add sugar/cocoa powder/whiskey/espresso until it tastes good and has the texture I'm looking for.

Score one more for vegan cream cheese, The Lady made (dairy-free, egg-free) chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese icing last week and they were amaaaaazing.

Speaking of which, dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free recipes, anyone?

I recently made James' vegan brownie pie. It was fantastic. Super fantastic delicious. You could not add the nuts and it would still be fantastic. I traded it for labor. My piercer removed my microdermal for it, and she thought it was totally absolutely the best super fantastic delicious, as well.

i am a great big giant LOST nerd now, all because of my silly lost nerd friends.  tomorrow is the series finale (omg what am i going to do with my life once LOST is over??), and apparently there are two different LOST parties i have to go to and everyone is all upset with me "you're only coming to the preshow?? jerk!"  "you're missing the preshow and you're only coming to watch the last episode?! jerk!".

so i am making Lost-themed(ish) baked goods to appease everyone.

Claire's Peanut Butter S'more Cake

i took this recipe and made it into cupcakes.  i'm going to put peach ice cream in the centers, and a chocolate shell and/or whipped cream on the tops.  I'll probably decorate some of them with Dharma logos.
i am really nervous about them though because they are full of air bubbles and i hope they're not totally gross!

last week i made rainbow cupcakes for a friend's birthday.  i wish i had photos because they were adorable!

i love that i finally have time to bake again, and plenty of excuses to give it all away (:

Your link is impressively borked, but it sounds good from your post! I wish I had the facilities to bake - maybe next year's oven will be cleaner and nicer and generally functional!

I'm glad!




Also, guys, I'm currently waiting 2 hours for some french bread to ferment! I'm a little nervous that I've screwed this up some how. This bread has been two or three days in the making.

I have been buying these raspberry and blueberry muffins from a tiny little coffee stand at my uni. They are delicious! However, I kind of want to know how to make them, but I don't want to ask the people at the stand.

They are not cakey, they are very dense and heavy, but don't feel like they sit heavy in your stomach. They look ridiculously healthy, aren't overly sweet and seem to have muesli pieces in them? I can only assume they are muesli muffins, however I have never made them before. Does anyone have any good recipes for this type of thing?

The Bourke Street Bakery have muffins sort of like this. I have their recipe book at home. I will copy it in when I get home.
Muffin recipes are so varied! I hope you can find something you like.

Thanks lunchy, that'd be awesome. I'm going to have a look in my baking books when I get a better chance, because my goodness these are delicious and are starting to cost me a fortune.

I tried to bake flapjacks today [...] I'll try again another time and not include quite as many oats.

She also mixes in a bit of larger oats and a bit of pin oats to give more variation in texture.

So, I'm leaning closely to Muffin Can Stop Me Now(thanks Tania!) for the name of my bakery. Our slogan would be "Tourtiere anyone?" Because of a NIN song, which goes "Nothing can stop me now, I don't care anymore" so it is funny! But still not sure if it is exactly what I want.
