It already seems like kind of a monthly tradition for me to showcase things which I find entertaining at the particular time of my life. I know that the whole idea is actually borrowed from other bloggers, but I've come to love it as if it was my own, and usually just can't wait to share with you a brand new batch of not-so-fashion related pictures!
Bright-colored necklace + matching nail polish = just the right amount of colour to spice up all the monochromatic outfits I usually wear...
You've got to excuse me for posting so many blossom pictures, but having been born in May, I've somehow always felt strongly attached to all kind of flowers ... On the other hand, how could anyone remain insensible to the charm of blooming apple trees?!
The shoes! No further explanation needed if you've got a chance to read one of my previous posts...
Classic Vanilla Cupcakes got a bit of summer-ish makeover...The foolproof recipe below!
All night partying must have left this lady quite exhausted... She came back home at six in the morning! I've never meant to become a strict parent, but if it happens one more time, I'll seriously consider setting a curfew!
Classic Vanilla Cupcakes:
125g unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch
a pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature!
Line muffin pans with paper liners. Sift together all of the dry ingredients. In a seperate bowl, cream the butter and sugar on high speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, then add the sour cream and vanilla extract. Sift in the flour mixture and mix on low speed only until combined. Fill the cupcake liners to the top. Bake at 180°C for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let them cool before frosting.
Now, I usually stick to my tried & tested Cream Cheese Frosting, but you can follow any recipe that's righ up your alley, or just top them with some freshly whipped cream. As for the final touch, I'm currently all into chocolate dipped strawberries!
