Yesterday I shared a pancake recipe with summer berries, today I’m (finally!) sharing another berry idea. It was Judiete’s birthday at the end of July and we used that as an opportunity to invite the rest of our banding crew to our cabin by the lake for a birthday/end-0f-season party. So of course I also used the opportunity to bake cupcakes.
I made vanilla cupcakes using my favourite recipe and iced them with my favourite frosting. Some I frosted with vanilla, and for chocolate, I added some Nutella (and a little extra milk) to the icing. (You could use cocoa instead, of course.) To pipe the vanilla I used a Ziploc bag with a corner snipped off, as I didn’t have my piping tips. And then I added raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries. The end result were pretty, colourful (with no food colouring needed!) delicious summery cupcakes. They also took far less time than decorating with multicoloured frosting.
I’m sure someday I’ll make similar ones again.
What’s your favourite summer berry?
