Beetroot and Chocolate CupCakes!

Beetroot and Chocolate CupCakes! What a combination!

A little healthy and a little naughty.

These cupcakes were filled with the nutritional value of beetroot, raw caster sugar, dark chocolate and eggs. And unfortunately the bad aka a standard cupcake mixture with a few extra bits.

On a scale of 1 (awful) to 10 (great) I would rate this recipe a 9 out of 10.

The texture was light and fluffy. The colour was deep red, which almost resembled a red velvet cupcake. The smell was AMAZING- it was like sweet and savory, almost like a muffin. The chocolate icing on top of the cupcake gave it that extra bit of sweetness which I loved.

So where did the recipe lose 1 point? The taste of the beetroot was a little to strong (for me personally). However whoever tried my cupcakes said that the taste wasn’t that strong. So it was probably just me.


Also finely grating 3 beetroot bulbs took a while. If I were to make these delicious cupcakes again (highly likely) I think I would try the food processor. Saving myself some time

Why cake decorating?

First time blogger!

So why cake decorating? Because it’s so much fun.

As most of you know I am a scientist but during my spare time I love baking and decorating cakes.

If I didn’t become a scientist I would have pursuit a career in hospitality, in particular patisserie. Creating special and unique things out of sweets and chocolates is not only delicious but rewarding.

I started my facebook page a while ago so people could see the array of work I do, however I found it hard to communicate about the good and bad I experienced while creating my delicious items.

So please stay tuned. A special treat is not far away 🙂
