Blueberry Cupcakes by claremanson Blueberry Cupcakes by claremanson
I wasn't planning on baking today but i passed some lovely looking blueberries in the shop this morning so decided to make cupcakes (made wit gluten free flour so i could try them) with my eldest daughter.

I was going to put butter cream on top but then realized they are for the kids and it is not exactly good for them plus they would probably end up eating the butter cream and leaving the cupcakes so dusted over a little sugar instead.

I am having a bit of a problem with my camera at the moment. The auto focus is not focusing half the time when i get close to my subject, i have to back off a lot and it is ruining my shots, it is becoming very frustrating. Not being very technical minded i am not sure if it is me or the camera but it has only been happening these past couple of weeks. I will have to have it sent off to be looked at but 3-4 weeks at least with no camera is not a nice thought! On top of that as i baked spur of the moment i didn't have great lighting, i normally photograph at a certain time of day for the best light so apologies for lack of standard today!

Made with my usual recipe!

This reminds me that I still need to make blueberry muffins. Maybe I should just come over and steal the cupcakes instead, he he he.

But that might not be until July! They'd still be there by then? :XD:

Me and my sister made some chocolate and banana ones for our mum for mothers day. But the paper got stuck to them, I wonder why :/

i read this can happen when you eat them still hot/warm they will stick. I also read sometimes spraying the paper liners with a little cooking spray can help stop the sticking

I like raw blueberries most, I find. I'm a huge berry fan, though, lol.

Ooooooo...a breeze, that sounds nice. It's only just cooling down here.
....I saw the cakes, and when you'd mentioned not putting butter icing on, all I could think of was a topping of Mr Whippy instead..:hungry:

I think this is one of my biggest bakes yet. It's four 12x9 inch roasting tins worth of sponge, that will hopefully resemble a lorry by Thursdy!

....and no Mr Whippy..:( but it is just starting to cool down now...:)
