Dr Pepper - Pinterest inspired Cupcakes!

Before we get into the pretty pictures, I'd like to clear some things up:
1) I actually really hate Dr Pepper - not a huge fan of the fake cherry flavor (tastes like the cherry cold medicine I used to get when I was a kid), but my boyfriend loves this stuff.
2) ...I don't have a sifter.  You'll see what I mean in a minute.

Dr Pepper Cupcake!

Since Dr Pepper isn't exactly common here in Australia, none of my family have actually tried it before.  It was highly amusing getting my family to try a bit - my brother took a small (by small I actually mean pretty much non-existent) sip, and Mum took one sniff and pulled the most amusing face.

To explain the random lumps in my icing...  Yeah, I don't have a sifter.  There was one, once, but it was a weird contraption which had a huge buildup of flour and icing sugar and was impossible to clean (it had rotating blades and was... again, weird).

Dr Pepper cupcakes =)

Apparently these cupcakes were "alright, but not really Dr Pepper-y".  Not my words, I took a tiny nibble and all I could taste was Dr Pepper.  So won't be making these again, but it was an interesting Pinterest-inspired project!

The batter was the other half of the brownie cupcake recipe from last week, and half a cup of Dr Pepper.  The icing recipe was from somewhere on the internet, but they all looked pretty similar when I Googled "Dr Pepper Icing"

See you Wednesday!

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…

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)
