Strawberrylicious Cup Cakes

I was sent two bottles of liqueur by Four Cousins in order to take part in this challenge. This recipe for Strawberrylicious Cup Cakes is in line with my blogging policy.

I tend to bake every weekend if I have the time. It is mainly because I love to have something sweet after dinner every night. I also love to share what I bake and I usually send half of what I have made home with James, my step son. On the weekend of the 12th and 13th of October I spent quite some time in my kitchen making and baking for my blog. I also baked some bread rolls for James as he is house sitting for us as well as some bread for Dave to have at lunch time at work. I made a dozen cup cakes and as soon as they were iced and photographed I sent James a whatsapp message telling him that cupcakes were being served until 16h30. Sadly for him, he was not in the village. The plus side for me is that I have had more cup cakes to eat – and most of them were eaten at tea time as they are so good. As part of the creamgenius recipe creations I used the Four Cousins Strawberry Cream and as you bite into them you can smell the strawberries. To cut the sweetness I made a very simple icing using cream and dark chocolate.

What is your after dinner treat?
