Cupcakes for the gardener in your life

These fun cupcakes are ideal for anyone who loves gardening or just loves the look of what a garden can produce. The silicone 'pots' are now widely available from cook shops. Lakeland in the UK has stocked them for a while now. You can slip a paper case inside the silicone if you want to (especially if you giving these as a hostess gift and want to take your silicone ones home).

Nutella and crushed Oreos

My inspiration, as so often when it comes to cupcakes, comes from the wonderful Australian baker, Elise Strachan,who has one of THE best YouTube channels around. Search mycupcakeadiction and you'll find her represented on every social media.

I made chocolate brownie cupcakes in the Thermomix, baked them in the silicone pots, dipped in softened chocolate spread ( Thermomix owners can make their own and reduce the sugar 🙂 and coated them in crushed Oreo biscuits.

Then it's up to you which fruit, vegetable or garden bug you make. You can use modelling chocolate, tinted marzipan, or common sweets like jelly beans or starburst (opal fruits to those of us of a certain age).

Have a wonderful day!
