Simply Scrumptious Cupcakes – a book review and giveaway

Simply Scrumptious CupcakesAnyone who follows me on Instagram will know that I’m often to be found in the kitchen baking cakes.  Sometimes by myself, sometimes with my egg beating assistant AKA Monkey, aged nearly 4!  So when Liz Berwick, the lady behind Simply Scrumptious Cupcakes asked me if I’d like to look at her soon to be launched recipe book – I said Yes Please!

Simply Scrumptious CupcakesSimply Scrumptious Cupcakes recipe book is being published on 3rd December, you will be able to purchase from Amazon then for £6.00.

The 33 page paperback book (a Kindle version will also be available – but you know me and technology!) covers tips, equipment and frosting ideas, along with 10 cupcake recipes with 10 additional variants.  All of the recipes in Simply Scrumptious Cupcakes are really very easy to follow and all have accompanying photographs.

I decided to try the Carrot and Walnut cupcakes (minus the walnuts – sorry Liz, friend with allergy alert).  My Monkey son, was eager to assist with egg beating as usual and watched my every move to ensure I made the cupcakes correctly.

What did we think – they were moist and truly scrumptious! I didn’t even get a chance to add some frosting before my two gannets had helped themselves.  Oh well, gives me an excuse to bake something else – maybe Black Bottom Cupcakes or Nanna Gore’s Sticky Gingerbread Cupcakes …..

The Simply Scrumptious Cupcakes recipe book would make a lovely stocking filler for any home baking fan.
