Today was a public holiday! Always great when you don’t have to go into work but still get paid for it! 🙂

Today I baked Lemon Cupcakes from the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook. Delish! This cookbook is my favourite EVER. I use to live in Wimbledon for nearly 2 years and fell in love with the shop at Portobello Road in Notting Hill.

I found that I didn’t have enough mixture for the full 12 cupcakes – but that would be because I used muffin cases instead of cupcake size. Also the amount of zest all up is 3 normal size lemons. To get the zest use a micro-plane grater, if you don’t have one get one! They are easy to clean and you get more zest out of the citrus.

I will upload the recipe tomorrow –

Welcome to Tamicakes!

Over the coming posts I will be uploading my baking adventures from some of my favourite cookbooks. I hope to upload and bake something each week but as I still want a social life this might not always happen.

That’s all for now…I am off baking 🙂
