Breakfast in Cupcake form

Out of all of the meals in my day, breakfast is without doubt, my favorite.  I can't say that French toast is my favorite thing to have for breakfast (I'm an easily please bacon-poached egg-toast-coffee kind of girl), but it is pretty delicious.  So when I saw the recipe for French toast cupcakes, I had to put them on my to-bake list and make them.

Also, look!  I finally got my icing to work!  ...Granted, I can't remember what I did (pretty sure I used pure icing rather than soft, but I'm not sure), but none the less, it worked.  These cupcakes also seem to get better the day after (if they last that long) - infinitely more French-toast-y, and absolutely delicious.

Finally, these cupcakes would be the one baked-good which my boyfriend's gone crazy over.  He's generally pretty "meh" about my cooking, but he loved these.  Especially the icing.  That maple icing is delicious.  Oh, and since I couldn't find the maple essence requested in the recipe, I used 1 tablespoon of maple syrup per teaspoon of maple essence.  It worked quite well.

I found the recipe on The Busty Baker's blog!

Until next time,

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…
