Cupcake to cocktail?

Over the last few months their have been more patty-cases and pretty icing filling shop windows than shoes – if only boutique bars were to multiply at the rate of cupcake parlours. And it’s kind of ironic, we rally for a relaxation of liquor licenses, yet it’s the petite cake shops that go into overdrive. Initially i was caught up in the craze, taken over by a love of fluffy sponge and buttery icing – every weekend i looked forward to baking another 12 delights and painting them with a sugary new hair-do. However i think i can officially say i’m cupcaked-out. There is a point when enough is enough and one more will send you running for the toilet bowl with spatula still in hand. Having said this… i now find myself gravitating back to my kitchen bench and like a zombie, flicking the papers of my grotty notepad till i’m once again staring, memosrised, at “Kristen’s cupcake recipe”. Don’t think, just bake.
