I found my mojo… it was lost for a little while but it’s popped back up with a vengeance and I’ve been concocting a variety of cakes and bakes recently that will be making an appearance soon.
I thank the back to back Bank Holidays and the lighter Spring evenings for giving me the boost again. The dark winter evenings just aren’t the best for motivation or photographing, and food really doesn’t like flash (and neither do I). But with Spring comes not just lighter evenings, but country walks, eating outside, catching up with family and friends, lots of birthdays, and the new crop of fruits, berries and vegetables popping up… everything looks, feels and tastes just so fresh; and the mind feels a little fresher too.
That said, I’ve still been baking away in the wings, and I’ll admit that these cupcakes were baked back in February (of course they were… hearts and cupcakes scream Valentines; don’t they?). But don’t fret they’re not still hanging around, they disappeared in a matter of hours.
