Today we have been celebrating Hubby’s birthday. His actual birthday was a week ago, but we were in Lewis and I’d forgotten his birthday card, his present hadn’t arrived, and I couldn’t be bothered to bake on holiday. So his fake birthday was today! And we celebrated with these:
There were more, but they were either badly iced, or already eaten by the time I took this photo! The star shaped one was made with some old star shaped cup cake tins that my mum has had forever. As we are trying to de-junk (very slowly), I thought I’d better give them the chance to prove their worth. I made 3 which I squidged a muffin case into to line, and for another 3 I just buttered & floured the tins. The ones with the muffin case were sad little not quite star shaped cupcakes, while the others just took a little work to get out of the tin. Definitely think I’ll be using them again…although I’m not sure I’ll stick them through the dishwasher again…not sure what metal they’re made of, but I’m not convinced they won’t rust!
