I wasn’t looking forward to this recipe – white cake, white frosting, how special can it be? I could not have been more wrong. The cake is soft and fragrant with vanilla. The frosting includes my new favorite, golden syrup; it imparts a sweet, toffee flavor to everything it touches. I’m sure this is something I will make again. I was a little surprised though. I have room for 12 cupcake, pan and oven-wise. The recipe say it makes 15, I was wondering what I would do with the extra batter, but I ended up with only 11 cupcakes.
Unlike my other blog posts, as part of the Heavenly Cake Bakers, I don’t post recipes from this book on the Internet. One of the reasons for this baking group is to encourage readers to purchase the cookbook. That strategy worked on me! After follow the group’s baking adventures for a couple of months, I ordered a copy from Amazon because I wanted join in.
