Excess Easter Eggs 1: Caramello Cupcakes!

I don't know about you all, but I have an abundance of chocolate eggs around my place at the moment. In addition to the ones gifted to me by my family, I accidentally overbought eggs for my students (I had 2 unopened bags...). So I'm making myself a mission: a series of posts dedicated to using up the excess Easter eggs in a way that (hopefully) won't send you into a chocolate coma.

In the first edition of Excess Easter Eggs, I made (the admittedly very obvious but I felt it needed to be done anyway) egg-filled cupcakes.

I initially intended to use a chocolate cake recipe (oddly enough, the one I used in my last post) but then realised I didn't have cocoa powder.  Mild issue, that one.  So I went with another Julie Goodwin recipe, this time the "No Fail Cake".

Seriously, that cake is no fail, to the point where my younger brother (who has minimal cooking skills) could make it.

The reason why I left it uniced was partially because I was feeling lazy and partially because the recipe didn't actually need it; I took quite a few of them over to a mate's place to watch Game of Thrones and they were gone pretty quickly.

So what I did was got my cake recipe, made it according to recipe, then put 1/4 cup of mixture in the pan, lightly put an egg in the centre and covered it with a little bit more mixture.  Mm, delicious.  Oh, and I baked these cupcakes for 20 minutes, but for other recipes I'd check between 15-20mins depending on the recipe.

Anyway, I'll see you Friday for more chocolate-ty goodness!

  1. Wow, that's a cool idea! Did it work out well? I've never seen a Carmello egg, but I know that the caramel Cadbury cream eggs (which may be the same thing, for all I know) have really runny centers, which seems like it could be problematic.

    1. Thanks! =D It sort of worked? The caramello ones (sadly) didn't have much caramel in them, so they worked about as well as the solid ones did - they didn't melt that much but were still delicious!

Pattern: No Navi!

It's been a while...  Life's been pretty hectic around here, finally 3/4 way through my prac, so hopefully I can get more pattern making / stitching sometime...  For now, here's a small pattern inspired by this demotivational poster:

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 =)

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…
