A chocolatey Valentine’s day collab |Glücksgeist

Angela from LifeofAngela asked me on Instagram if I wanted to join her Valentine’s day baking and of course I had to say yes. Personally I don’t celebrate Valentine’s day, but who doesn’t love to eat some baked goods especially if it’s chocolate.

We both have Rosanna Pansino’s cookbook so we really wanted to use a recipe from it. Angela went for the chocolate cupcakes and I had to follow because chocolate is my favourite. I am really excited to see what Angela made out of this recipe.

I thought a little bit on how I should decorate my muffins, but my family and I actually aren’t the biggest fan of icing believe it or not. Mainly because my icing never turns out that good so I thought as I am baking for the day of love I actually treat my family, so I didn’t go for icing in the end. Instead I used these super cute muffin cases. My sister got them for me a few days ago, she’s just so cute.

The are in this lovely pink with hearts on them, so perfect for Valentine’s day. They also turn a boring brown muffin into a little piece of art, so I was really happy with them.

My family absolutely loved these and they were gone in a day. I think there’s no better present than something baked because it shows the effort you put into it.

Don’t forget to check out Angela’s cupcakes! Thank you so much Angela for doing this with me, I had so much fun!

Milkshake cupcakes 

Hi everybody!

Today I want to share such a cute cupcake decoration idea with you. As you probably know I am a huge cupcake lover for years now. I love to bake cupcakes and create different shapes and toppings.

So today I show you how to create a milkshake cupcake.

First of all you need to bake your favourite cupcakes. I used my trusty lemonade recipe which you can check out here.

After you baked them let them cool down. Then start with the topping. Again, I am using the recipe from my lemonade cupcakes.

Now I took some straws and cut them into little pieces. Then I added one piece to each cupcake.

How cute are these?! They look just like little strawberry milkshakes.

Have an amazing day.

The little mermaid inspired cupcakes 

As a child I watched so many Disney movies, I mean who didn’t?! I loved beauty and the beast, I mean I did a whole beauty and the beast week (which you can check out here).

I loved the movie Mulan as well , but there was one movie I absolutely loved but totally forgot about: The little mermaid. 

Recently my brother and I talked about the Disney movies we loved to watch as a child. My brother and I used to watch Aladdin 2 so much, we absolutely loved it. But then I remembered the little mermaid and I just had to watch it again.

And I loved it! I felt quiet emotional because it took me back to so many memories. I absolutely love this movie!

If you read my blog for long enough you will know that if I love something I bloody love it and probably get a bit too excited about it.

Because I love the little mermaid so much I decided to create some inspired cupcakes.

I used my trust lemonade recipe (check it out here). I am so obsessed with these cupcakes recently just because they are my sister’s favorites.

After the cupcakes cooled down I started with the topping, again I used the topping from this recipe and added some blue food colour to the mixture. This time I went for a pastel blue, which looks like the sea.

I piped the topping onto the muffins and created a swirl on each one.

Now I added these cute little yellow stars sea stars.

For all the Coffee addicted #PLLW

Today on my third post during my ‘Pretty little liars week’ I want to share something coffee related with you. These girls must have coffee in their blood because they drink so much, especially Spencer.

So I thought these tiramisu cupcakes would be perfect!

Also if you don’t like coffee just give them a try. I don’t drink coffee but I love the taste of these ones!

Let me know what you think of them in the comments.
