The first Kit Kat out of the Hello Kitty lucky dip bag (yes, the picture on the bag matters) is Satsumaimo (Sweet Potato) flavour. I think this is the white fleshed variety of sweet potato, but I only have the site I bought them on to go on, so this may be total fallacy. Believe it or not, this biscuit does taste different to last year’s variety . Unfortunately, this is not a good thing. While I enjoyed last year’s one for its sweet potatoey flavour, this one tastes less like sweet potato and more… just sweet.

I need very little excuse to get over excited about cakes, but when I was invited to a chocolate party last weekend…Well, I could hardly control myself. In fact, I think I did very well just to stick to one type of cupcake and one big cake.
These are hot chocolate cupcakes. Chocolate Chili sponge with a hint of cinnamon frosted with dark chocolate buttercream and chocolate coated marshmallows. I personally can’t resist a chocolaty marshmallow.
And this is a 4-layer white chocolate cake decorated with three flavours of macaron, hand made chocolates, hand piped chocolate cupcakes and at least three types of edible glitter. I’m sorry there aren’t any better pictures of this one. Oh well, just means I’ll have to make another!
My sister challenged me to create some mini vegetable cupcakes for autumn. The flavours are beetroot, carrot and parsnip. Although they are still sweet, they do taste predominantly of their main ingredients. Much more so than a traditional carrot cake. They are unusual, but I really enjoyed them and so did my sister. The only problem is, are they the pudding, or the main course?
