I have been waiting for this book to come out for months so I was very happy to forget about my cookbook goal and buy this book.
The first cupcake I made was the Smore cupcake on page 151.
The cupcake was made with graham flour so it tasted like a graham cracker. I made a chocolate ganache and put that on top of the cupcake.
Then I made a marshmallow frosting and put it in a pastry bag and covered the chocolate ganache with the frosting.
The fun really began when I pulled out my seldom used kitchen torch and toasted the marshmallow frosting......fun times.
It was a fun baking afternoon. I also made two things from Donna Hay cookbooks.
From the book Flavors I made a fantastic roasted beet salad with mint (from my herb garden), feta and the best dressing made from balsamic, wholegrain mustard and pepper. I love beets!
From the Classics book I made a potato goat cheese tart made with puff pastry and rosemary also from my garden.
