Bank Holiday Bake Sale

Since the sun didn't grace us with its presence this weekend, I spent this afternoon slaving away in the kitchen to make two different kinds of cupcakes, as voted for by my colleagues at Racepoint: Cookies & Cream and Lime Meringue, both recipes courtesy of Primrose Bakery.

The Cookies & Cream ones are chocolate cupcakes covered in marshmallow icing and broken Oreo Cookies and the Lime Meringue cupcakes are lime flavoured cupcakes filled with lime marmalade (should have been lime curd, but couldn't find any...) and topped with meringue.

Because this will be the last bake sale I do at Racepoint, I pledge to match however much I raise in the office in the hope that I can meet my £500 target....

Summer bake sale raises £17.22

We've been having a bit of a heatwave in London so what better theme for this month's bake sale than 99 ice creams?!

I made vanilla cupcakes from the Primrose Bakery recipe book and topped them with fluffy white meringue icing.
