Mini Cupcakes for Mini Hands: children’s party cupcakes

Sometimes we’re asked to do things which are off-the-menu, and sometimes these things make us squeal with delight!

Bite-sized cupcakes for a 4-year old’s nursery party is definitely one of those latter occasions.

We loved making these super-cute cupcakes, perfect for tiny hands. So simple, just a delicious vanilla sponge topped with princess pink buttercream, dipped in white chocolate stars and sugar pearls.

The Science Behind the Perfect Cookie

It’s commonly known that baking is a science; here is a cute video we found on YouTube which talks about why the smell of baking is so intoxicating. 

For example, did you know that there is an ideal temperature to bake cookies so they brown perfectly and the sugar caramelises?

And did you know how to use your nose as a tool to determine when the baking is done? Of course, it’s wise to keep the timer in reserve, but your nose (after time) will alert you to when it’s time to pull the baking tray out of the oven. As a professional bakers we can tell when things are ready before the buzzer goes off… no-one likes a burnt muffin!
