Crafty Things

Chocolate and Guinness cupcakes
Happy Happy Happy

I made these chocolate and guinness  cakes recently and they went down a storm.I got the recipe from this blogging lady.

Finished product

Fancy a pint?

 The recipe is as follows:

For the cupcakes
250ml Guinness
250g unsalted butter, cut into pieces
75g cocoa
400g caster sugar
142ml sour cream
2 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract
275g plain flour
2 ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

For the topping
300g Philadelphia cream cheese
150g icing sugar
125ml double or whipping cream

Preheat the oven to gas mark 4/180˚C/fan oven 160˚C. Line 2 muffin tins with muffin paper cases.

Start by pouring the Guinness into a large, wide saucepan and add the butter; heat until the butter's melted, at which time you should whisk in the cocoa and sugar. Beat the sour cream with eggs and vanilla and then pour in the pan of brown, buttery, beer and finally whisk in the flour and bicarbonate of soda.

Pour the batter into the muffin cases ¾ of the way up and bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Leave to cool in the tins for 20 minutes and then cool completely on a cooling rack.

When the cupcakes are cold get on with the icing. Lightly whip the cream cheese until smooth, sieve over the icing sugar and then beat them both together. Add the cream and beat again until it makes a spreadable consistency.

I also have had my hand at making lavender pieces which look super cute...

 Lavender hearts and sachets with super cute heart details.....

Triple performing facial emulsion with Spf 15- review

As you saw from my last post I went to the Benefit counter to have one of their make overs....

Now, I would only recommend going, if like me you were after a couple of bits or you had purchased bits and you wanted to know how they worked...DO NOT GO if you don't need anything... not only will you feel pressured to buy (my Benefits lady was lovely and did not oversell but still..)  and secondly even if your not sold to, you're going to want to buy it anyway!!!!!

I was after a new moisturiser and after researching a few, I felt this one sounded like a good option....

It is described as an emulsion as it is non oily, however it is meant to be hydrating. I suffer with sensitive, combination skin and I struggle to find a moisturiser that makes my skin moisturised yet not over greasy  As you can see it comes in a pretty bottle, which looks cute (I know that's not a big thing...but it kinda helps!)

 I like the fact it comes with a pump top so it doesn't all squeeze out, the benefit lady reckoned 3 pumps a go!

Overall I think the moisturiser is really good on my skin and a great base for make up, however at £19.50 it is pretty pricey, lets see how well it lasts!
