When the clouds are grey, the sky overcast, a slight chilly breeze blows and rain is imminent, it usually calls for blankets, hot drinks, a good book, and or baking to lighten things up. Since stumbling upon Lydia’s blog LydiaBakes, I have been tempted to try something from her recipes that were doable with my skills – or lack of should I say. I couldn’t taste the cupcakes myself as I recently developed an allergy towards certain types of chocolate. Nevertheless I got my sister to be the guinea pig and they’re happily acceptable for my first attempt. Yay!
