    /me gets into baking mode!
    Also, does it have to be a cupcake, I don't have any cupcake molds/cases. How about a general cake.

    Is there a text book definition on the difference between a fairy cake and a cupcake. im sure they are the same really but fairy cake is what brits call them though they tend to be smaller and less decorated.

    I normally don't care too much about decoration when I bake. What matters most is the taste. Something that can't really be judged on a forum. [​IMG]

    No cake snobbery here please. because what your basically saying is your cakes look rubbish =p

    Mine do taste great. I just put efforts into design too. I never match flavour and colour. I had blue lemon cakes lol. I needed them to be blue, but lemon tastes the best. I also only ever use the natural colourings. Like I wanted a lime green but they only had it artificial, so I went for the darker green.

    My cupcakes are going to be epic! I have them all planned =D

    Cupcakes!
    I might enter this. I can't make good cupcakes for the life of me, though.
