Happy Sunday everyone. If you don’t feel like braving the chilly outdoors, then why not indulge in a little home-sweet-home baking?

 

Today’s oh-so-tasty recipe is brought to you by Lucy, Editor of the delicious blog Supergolden Bakes. Lucy will be showing you how to create the crème de la crème of cupcakes – seriously, they are divine. But beware, once you try these little beauties, there will be no going back, they are literally all you’ll be able to think about! Enjoy…

 

Supergolden Bakes:

This cupcake was inspired by a cake my mum used to make when I was little. It has a moist, fluffy sponge and an incredibly addictive Swiss meringue buttercream frosting laced through with crunchy hazelnut praline. Every single person who has eaten one of these babies has emitted something between a sigh and a moan upon biting into one. Yes, they are THAT good.
