Feeling Fancy

"Pearls are always appropriate"

Anyone else remember when we had sun and it was actually warm enough to wear just a camp top out of the house?! No me neither! But here's an old blog post I found and clearly forgot to post from when that weather did exist.

Lemon Daisy Cupcakes

I'm back today with a brand new recipe for you!
These are perfect little Summer cupcakes for any kind of occasion. 
I personally made these cupcakes for my Grandma's Birthday, and everyone loved them, I also posted a shot on Instagram of them and they were a real hit so I wanted to share the recipe.
SERVES 12 Cupcakes

Ingredients:

For the cakes:

125g softened butter
125g caster sugar
2 medium eggs
100g self raising flour (sifted)
2 tbsp milk
1 and a half lemons (for zest)
1/4 of a lemon (for juice)

For the icing:

100g softened butter
200g icing sugar (sifted)
1/4 of a lemon (for juice)
12 edible wafer daises - you can get the ones I used HERE

Recipe:
For the cupcakes:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line your cupcake tray with cupcake cases.

Using a freestanding mixer, beat together your butter and sugar until fully combined.

Add the eggs, sifted flour, milk and the zest of 1 and a half lemons and the juice of quarter of a lemon.

Then mix everything until completely smooth.

Spoon your mixture into your 12 cases until they all have an equal amount, I started by adding one and a half teaspoons into each case and then continued on until I had used all of the mixture and the cases where equally full.

Bake for 15 - 20 mins, or until golden brown and when putting a cake tester or knife into the cupcake and pulling it out it is completely clean.

The icing:
(I didn't add a huge amount of icing to the cupcakes because my Grandma isn't a fan of a huge amount of buttercream)

Add you sifted icing sugar, your butter and lemon juice to a free-standing mixer and blend together until the mixture turns a pale primrose colour and looks light and fluffy.

Once the cupcakes are COMPLETELY cool spread the buttercream onto each cupcake and decorate as you please! I added these lovely edible daises to each one.
Let me know how it goes if you ever make these cupcakes!!

Summer Shoe High Street Wishlist

After yesterday's blog post of my Summer Clothing Wish List post I thought it was 100% necessary for me to do a shoe version! I mean absolutely no outfit is complete without shoes, that's just a fact.
Therefore, for this blog post I have compiled a few of my favourite Summer shoes from the high street shops (which ps is basically just sandals because I live in sandals and flip flops in the warm months!)




Are there any items in the shops that you're lusting after for the Summer?!
