Perhaps one of the reasons why I was delaying this bake is because... I can't believe this could be the end of FWB!! Four and a half months and 16 recipes later, I'd like to think we're taking 'a break', an indefinite one that is. Lest you think we are parting ways, we are not!! This is break is unavoidable to allow my baking partner (second, friend - first) to focus on what she had just recently embarked on - pastry school in Paris!! Isn't that simply WONDERFULLLL??
Whether this is the end of FWB or not, we'll let time tell. I am just happy that we've baked our recipe choices on CUPCAKES and more glad that Jenny chose this recipe for our (maybe) finale.
The recipe says it yields 34 cupcakes, so I decided to make a third and used smaller sized paper liners and got 19 cupcakes. That's a LOT of cupcakes.
I already have a favorite moist chocolate cake recipe which I swear by and use in all my layered chocolate cake, chocolate cupcakes etc, so I was excited to see if this recipe can top my favourite recipe.
On a scale of 1-10, I give my fav recipe a 10 and this.... a 10 too!! They taste very very similar ( though the steps to make them are very very different). Chocolatey and moist, these will get the thumbs up from even the most discerning chocolate cake lovers.
I hate goodbyes, so there won't be any... hope to see you again soon.. meanwhile, I will be baking and such and blogging about it here.
It all started with this book: Martha Stewart's Cupcakes
Fueled by the passion for baking and inspired by the recipes, I wanted to share the joy of baking with my dear friend Tina whom I got reunited with through FB recently. Today, despite leading separate lives and being distanced by several thousand miles, we have renewed our 2-decade friendship through baking! Join us as we enter this new chapter!
Rekindling friendships. Creating new ones. One bake at a time!!
As Martha would say, "It's a GOOD thing".
Thoughts from Tina's kitchen
Amazing how the love of baking, then a gift of a book re-strengthened a friendship after a 'lost' decade.
We are baking because... we can!! and so can you :) Join us as we bake in the name of friendship.
Go get your ovens ready, babes... we have cakes to bake!!
