I didn't think I'd have time to do a bake of the week this week, but you're in luck! I picked up these gorgeous cupcake cases earlier today and had to use them. As I'm off away to my conference in Cambridge and this is the first time I've been away from my boyfriend since he moved in a year ago, I thought I'd make him a little surprise for when he gets back from work tomorrow. I'm also filling the fridge with packed lunches, fruit and vegetables, and feeling faintly ridiculous about being so pathetic when I'm only going for two nights!
These are cherry cupcakes - the usual cupcake recipe with a couple of tablespoons of black cherry jam stirred in.
I love books, baking and my boyfriend, and love to write about the first two. I particular love "forgotten" books, books brought out of obscurity by republication and those still languishing in obscurity. I'm currently reading my way through all of the Virago Modern Classics, but taking in other books along the way.
