Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes

Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes unadorned

Cupcake #3 from Cupcakes Galore. I had a bit of difficulty making the frosting for these - I think it was because I didn't whip the whipping cream enough. My tip for this cupcake would be to only make a third of the frosting at a time. As the cupcakes are decorated when served and cream only lasts 3 days it's probably better to make it as needed.

I had just enough cake mix this time although I think I have about twice as much frosting as I need.

The knitting front is kinda slow at the moment - I'm busy making gauge squares for all the new yarn I've recently acquired. Jaywalkers have slowed as in Tuesday's SnB group I knitted past the start of the toe shaping by accident and have only been able to go backwards about 1 row before losing the will to live ...

Oh! and I got another fabby parcel from my secret pal. I will post pics later :)

I get the feeling that the author of this book reckons on eating half the frosting for every recipe as she goes along! Or maybe she thinks that most households have small kids who want to lick the bowl?

I've not picked up needles, yarn or hook for several days now, (no) thanks to this heat.
