For Christmas I received a set of cake cases in the shape of cups. There were also a set of saucers to serve them on. They are made by Wilko and are delightful. I made a basic sponge mixture for them and added white chocolate drinking chocolate and milk chocolate chips for flavour. They looked very nice as you can see, but a bit bland.
The picture on the box showed them with pink, piped butter icing, but this did not look quite right. I then thought ‘If they are ‘cup cakes’ they should look like a drink’. So I made up a mixture of vanilla butter icing and spread this over each cake leaving it a bit rough to resemble either cream or frothed milk, and sprinkled cocoa powder on the top. The result was some very realistic cups of capuccino. Such fun to make and a wondeful gift to give to someone.
