I promised you 3 giveaways this month and this is number two!
But before I get to that, I wanted to show you what I made with the great items on offer. And it is very much inspired by my Scottish roots – Scottish Tablet Stuffed and Iron Brew Frosted Cupcakes!
We are using an OXO Good Grips Batter Bowl to whip up some vanilla cupcakes. The bowl has high sides, so no splatter. It has permanent red markings (up to 2 litres) and a soft grip handle. And it has a wide spout to pour those more fluid batters. This retails at £13.00.
I used the recipe from my Trifle cupcakes and divided this between 12 cupcake cases. Now let the cupcakes cool before you move onto using the OXO Good Grips Cupcake Corer. This handy tool lets you remove the centre of cupcakes to fill with anything you choose. With an easy movement you core the cupcake and it ejects the centre for you to top the cupcake off with (or just snack on!). It’s has soft and non-slip grip, so perfect for kids or if you are making a large amount. This retails at £6.
I whipped up a batch of my Scottish Tablet (I overcooked it a tad in haste!!) and carefully spooned this into the cored cupcakes before it set. I let the remaining tablet set up in a separate pan, so I could snack on this later.
I let the tablet set fully in the cakes before I whipped up a batch of Iron Brew flavoured buttercream. I purchased the Iron Brew flavouring online and added 1 teaspoon to 500 grams of icing sugar, 200 grams of butter and one tablespoon of milk, all whipped up with some orange food colouring.
To spread the buttercream onto the cupcakes I used the OXOGood Grips Bent Icing Knife. I like to call this an off-set spatula myself as the stainless steel blade is raised from the handle which is perfect to keep it away from all the frosting going on. It has a soft non-slip handle and is very easy to use. This retails at £6.50.
To finish I decorated the frosting with some little blue chocolate balls. And that was my Iron Brew and Tablet Cupcakes. Give them a try!
