We've had a busy few days here at Cutiepie HQ. First we decided to experiment with our new flavour 'Chai and Mighty' - a chai latte cake. We kept the cakes nice and moist using strong tea, walnuts and citrus.
Then, to flavour the frosting, we made some lovely Chai Tea Syrup. We bubbled this up on our stove using the following recipe:
3 cups sugar
3 cups water
10 x Chai Tea Bags
It took about 10 - 15 minutes boiling away to reduce and is totally yummy!You can use it in hot drinks and to make iced tea as well! Why not give it a try? You could use regular tea if you don't like chai. We store ours in a pretty glass bottle which can be re-sealed and kept in the fridge for freshness.
Cutiepie Cupcakes have also been out and about meeting their customers and had a fantastic sell out success at No Strings Burlesque and Cabaret Club in Norwich on Saturday night. We took along Truly Madly Chocolate and Marshmallow Clouds and they practically flew out of our hands.
Ellie - owner of Cutiepie's managed to squeeze her increasingly pregnant form into a little vintage style number and shimmied her way through the very dapper and glamorous audience at the Norwich Puppet Theatre. She had so much fun she will be at the No Strings Boogaloo which is taking place at the Norwich Arts Centre on 23rd October. See if you can spot her there!
