Cheers!......G&T anyone?


hi everyone....hope everyone has had a good week....spent the morning at gramps's..he's a little brighter today, he's off on a day trip with the hospice next week, which he's looking forward to. He's going on a boat trip up the thames!
Went to a friends for dinner tonight, had a lovely evening and it gave me a fab excuse to make my Gin & Tonic Cupcakes!...my friend is very partial to a G&T so these were great for a hostess gift!...also decorated a wine tag for one of the guests birthday.


For the Cupcakes: I used a basic plain sponge recipe for the cupcakes, substituting milk/water with Tonic water. For the Icing ...250gm mascapone, 2Tsp Golden Syrup, Blue/Green Food colouring, 1or2 Tbsp Bombay Sapphire Gin.


Enjoy!
