I can't believe Christmas is over! I had a lovely time over the holidays and managed to do some baking. Now I just have to sit down and get blogging! First installment…

I baked these birthday buns for my dad who's birthday was the week before Christmas. I added some lemon zest to the blueberry cupcake mixture and topped the cakes with a cloud of white chocolate buttercream which was sweet and scented with vanilla. I didn't have any blueberry jam to hand but it would have been nice to cut out a little hole in the cupcakes and fill it with jam before topping with the buttercream – next time! The gnome candles were bought from The Primrose Bakery and matched the multicoloured cupcake cases – cute or what!
