My first Fairy Buns

Fairy Buns. That's what the Irish call cupcakes. How cute? It has a much lovelier ring to it.

I've always used pre-made mix, but now that I own my own kitchen, I thought I should do it the proper way - That and I couldn't find Betty Crocker mix here :) There are SO many lovely cupcake recipes, but I decided on lemon cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting.

And they turned out really well. BF even ate TWO of them, and he doesn't eat sweets (or crisps or anything do we manage to live in the same house?)

Here they are in all their badly frosted glory. I'll practice presentation for next time. BTW, those are silicon, reuseable cupcake holders, and I'm obsessed. They are so cute and easy to use.

I never knew that the Irish called cupcakes fairy buns. My friend Jess who works in MTV and writes a blog called Jess Loves Cupcakes ( would love this!
