Tropical Cupcake with Ginger Cream Cheese Buttercream

Crushed pineapple, shredded carrots, coconut and spices, this tropical cupcake has it all. With each bite, you get the tantalizing flavour of the tropics. This tropical cupcake is incredibly spiced and moist and just right for autumn.  The Pièce de résistance of this tropical cupcake, is the swirled ginger cream cheese frosting. The flavour of the ginger in the frosting is just right, not overpowering.

Raspberry and White Chocolate No Bake Cheesecake (An Ode to Summer)

Rich, indulgent, decadent raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake.  The marrying of raspberry and white chocolate is a match made in cheesecake heaven.

Bye bye summer, hello autumn. I can't complain.  We have had an absolutely brilliant summer. The sun in England for once worked and i mean worked. It wasn't in the sky just for cosmetics. We had heat waves, we had barbecues, we had birthday parties where the children could play on the bouncy castles without the fear of the skies opening up on them. Must have been Esme's 3rd birthday,  when we hired a bouncy castle and all it did was rain throughout the party. So yay to the English summer for not disappointing us this year. Thank you for the abundance of berries.

These funfetti sugar cookies have been on my to do list for a while now. So this week i finally got around to making them. It has been a very stressful, busy summer for me. With the children on vacation, work and a hundred thousand things i had to do, baking these cookies was therapy. There is sometime about funfetti that makes me happy, joyous and want to azonto.
