Guest Post #6: Lemon Curd Cupcakes

Bonjour mes cheris, get excited for me! After I finish these exams I am wading through right now, half of year 12 will be forever finished and over with! YAY!

Mais non, focus, FOCUS! It certainly is not over yet no matter how much I dream about year 12 formal. Ah, c’est la vie!

Anyhow, while I am not here to give you recipes, tips, tricks and well, my blog, I have some pretty fan-friggin-tastic fabulous chefs lined up to do so instead! A whole range of dishes for you to enjoy while I am on this undesired break  – You won’t even notice my absence I promise!

See you soon for the April holidays and wishing you all a marvelous Easter and break! Promise me you will chow down on what that Easter Bunny brings you/your chocolate loot stashed in the bottom of your drawer – Yes, I am on to you all!

Another Aussie blogger alert my friends, and this person rivals my own sweet tooth so you have been warned about an onslaught of deliciousness to come 🙂

Miss Carla from Eat. Sweet. By Carla Sue knows what people want. Over the top, sweet and fun treats full of colour and flavour blasts. Honestly, you could call her a walking, talking, cooking carnival 😀

You will see what I mean when you see the incredible lemony cupcakes to come… 🙂

Hello everyone! I’m Carla, from eat sweet. by carla sue. I just wanted to say a big thank you to Uru for allowing me to do a guest post for Go Bake Yourself! I actually emailed Uru to ask her how to ‘apply’ (hehe) to become a guest poster on her blog, and she told me that there were no applications necessary and she would put me on the list! I love following Go Bake Yourself (so many great recipes, all the time!), and Uru is such a wonderful supporter of my blog.

Paula. Vintage Kitchen. Both names/titles have a certain air of success about them. I say ‘Paula’, you say ‘Chef’ 🙂 – When she offered to do a guest post, I was definitely off my face happy! She is witty and so talented at photography so team that up with her cooking and you have a winner! 

Don’t be holding your breath for an average recipe my friends because Paula of the brilliant Vintage Kitchen Notes is about to show you the classical pound cake with her own not-so-vintage twist as she reminisces about summer 😀

********************************************************************

Hey everyone, I´m Paula and I´m so happy to be having this chat with you all and sharing one of my favorite cake recipes. I’m sure Uru would have no problem if we all dropped by unannounced bearing cake and asking for a cup of coffee. She is, after all, one of the friendliest persons ever to cross the blogosphere, and a talented chocolate alchemist as well. It´s a treat to be guest posting here.

Getting down and healthy seems to be the newest trend these days, keeping that stomach trim and those intestines fresh and detoxed now and again. I am all for getting on this though I prefer my sweets with real butter and real sugar, with my usual return being more exercise. 

I think I may have found someone to convert me. Meet Bek from one very healthy, Aussie blog, Crave! 😀 – She has goals to maintain, a fitness regime BUT makes some out of this world food without the usual fatty ingredients!

Why am I even talking? See for yourself with her healthified and incredible rendition of Rocky Road Ice Cream! 

****************************************************************

Hey guys! Are you craving something cold, icey, satisfying, sweet..but healthy? Well ladies and gentlemen, I’m here to tell you that you CAN have it all.

But before I fulfil your wildest dreams let me introduce myself- My name is Bek and I’m behind the blog Crave!

You have met my third guest poster before and I am pretty sure you would remember her well considering she made an incredibly delicious Chocolate Amaretti Torte!

She shows off her range today by changing from a decadent, chocolate overdose to her traditional family recipe which oozes out sun, Spring and lemons!

So, who do we have totally awesome guest poster #1? Ms Mimi from Chef Mimi Blog! This chef has pizzazz if I may say so, the magic in the hands to toss together simple ingredients and create something incredible from it – Trust me I have stalked… errr… ‘read many of’ her recipes 😛

Starting us off with a classic favourite dinner (lunch or breakfast too I suppose) for all, please welcome Mimi and her fabulous (and a little naughty!) Pasta Puttanesca!

************************************************************

One of my guilty pleasures is eating Pasta Puttanesca.  I’m not too sure why, because there’s nothing “sinful” about it.  Maybe it’s the history behind the name “puttanesca,”, having to do with Italian prostitutes.  (I think Nigella Lawson refers to it as “Slut’s Pasta!”)

Happy Early Easter!

’tis the season to eat chocolate falalalalalalalalalalalala’ – never did know how many ‘lala’s there were at the end but hey does it really matter? 😉

IMG_6031

Aaaah, Easter… cutesy bunnies, gorgeous hyper-coloured chickens and enough chocolate available to have you so high that you can see that unicorn riding a rainbow… not that I would know what that feels like… of course… 😉

It also means a nice big dose of delicious (yes, I said delicious!) extra holidays! Two more days of chilling, long weekend-ing and of course, eating chocolate (did I forget to mention that before?)

You probably reckon I should be celebrating international woman’s day or something since April is still pretty far but um… read title please? Early Easter on Go Bake Yourself (forever providing you with an excuse to eat more chocolate – my linebecause during Easter, I am off examining (jokes, I am being exam-ed!)

Supercalafragalisticexpialadoshus-ism

As if this ‘word’ needed to be made any longer!

IMG_5790

But like ‘cubism’ or ‘realism’ or ‘impressionism’ or any of the ‘-isms’ which my English teacher seems to believe applies to every English word in the dictionary (humanism, beliefism, train-trackism – whatever, the context, believe you me there will be an –ism in there!), I decided that one of the most famous words in the history of English should really join the party. And thus…

Supercalafragalisticexpialadoshusism was born. 🙂

IMG_5808

There are some concepts in this world which have a supercalafragalisticexpialadoshus-ity about them.

What I mean when I use this convoluted but very catchy word is that there are concepts which are hit-you-in-the-head-with-a-brick painful.
