More Scrumptious Baking!

I blogged last weekend about our attempt at making these Double Choc Chip Muffins and this week I'm back with another yummy baking relating post. My nephew came over to stay for the weekend & of course we baked some cakes again. I think Sunday has become the official baking day in the McKenna household. I enjoy baking with my nephew it's such a nice start to Sunday plus with the weather being so horrible out later it's definitely something fun to do whilst stuck in doors.
This time around tried the Cadbury's Button Cake Mix. These look amazing on the box, so yummy! Included in the box was a cake mix, icing mix, a packet of white choc buttons and paper casings. We scrapped the latter as they were a bit on the small size, my Mom wanted to make bigger cupcakes. We used the step by step guide on the packaging which couldn't of been more straightforward. The buns took literally 12 minutes to make in the oven when they were done we left them to cool before putting a lot of icing on them. I'm surprised there was any white choc buttons left as they are Ryan's favourite and of course he took the page and devoured most of them. We managed to safe a few to finish off the cupcakes. The only thing that didn't go to plan was the icing. Something went terribly wrong there! Like it didn't look anything like the picture on the box, if anyone has tips or knows how we went wrong let me know.
I think we did a pretty good job if I do say so myself. I know we won't be opening a bakery anytime soon but these look nice nice to me. A lot of the family will be enjoying these after our Sunday dinner. I seriously enjoyed the break from working on my college assignment. This particular one has been extremely stressful for me. I can't wait to hand it in tomorrow and get it out of my hair for good.



  1. It looks like the cupcakes weren't properly cooled before the icing was put on. Either that or the butter was too runny/soft when it was mixed.

    I'm useless with packet mixes, I burn them all but when I make it from scratch it's usually fine. It'd save a lot of hassle if I could just whip these out!


    1. I say it was the latter, I think maybe the butter was too soft as the icing itself was runny before I even put it on the cupcakes. Aww well they still went down a treat with everyone especially my nephew.

      I'm the complete opposite packet mixes work really well for me, I'd be lost without the instructions xx

  2. These look fab really want to make some now

    1. They were so nice, my whole family loved them. I really like how they're so much fun to make too xxx
