I was in a bookshop down in the city centre when I stumbled up on the Cake Boss cook book.
Absolutely awesome, I have been a great fan of the Cake Boss show but never knew there was a Cake Boss cook book.
So naturally I had to, really had to have it.

I learned I really like to make and decorate cupcakes and big cakes.
The recipe here is greatly inspired by the book but, being a chemist I have made a few modifications. Just to have some more consistent results and avoid the need for a mixer.

Yes that is right no need for a mixer, a whisk will do you just fine.
Pre heat the oven on 180 deg C.

Ingredients:
225g of plain four
100g of brown sugar
230g of white sugar
40g of cacao powder
10g of vanilla sugar
5g of baking powder

2 large eggs
125g of butter (vegetable shortenings)
50g of dark chocolate
120g of buttermilk
120g of hot water

Tools:
Big bowl
Small pan
Whisk

For filling the cupcake cases, get a sandwich ziplock bag, put the batter in and cut a 5mm hole in one bottom corner. You essentially pipe the batter. Its clean and easy!

You make it look so easy! I hope you do more videos on making other flowers. I quite enjoyed that.

Hi, just found your site. Everything's lovely. To get the batter in the liners, use an ice cream scoop- you may call it a disher. That way the cupcakes are all even in height.
