I might have mentioned about my wonderful friend Suze...she is the most excellent baker, and very unassuming about her obvious baking abilities. Well. today Suze came to visit me, and brought with her 2 boxes of her amazing cupcakes from her latest recipe book. The cakes are divine, topped with praline, and the most velvety smooth chocolate texture cake. Anyway, sorry that you can;t taste them, but here is photo of them to tease and tempt you :)
If anyone is interested in recreating these beauties, the recipe is in the latest Hummingbird book!
