The Cupcake concordat

pretty cupcakesLaydeeez and gencleplums, may I present Divorce Tower’s entry in the delightful English Mum’s Cupcake Concordat?

As you will see, they are as pink and fluffy and Valentiney as anyone could ever wish:

pretty cupcakes

Delish, n’est-ce pas? I can say that without seeming (too) disgustingly boastful as it was actually Child One, my secret weapon, who made the little artworks with her own fair hand. Here she is in the act of decoration:

And look at the detail on this one:

Of course, I don’t know where she gets this culinary talent from.

No, seriously, I don’t. Because here are my efforts, truffles concocted as a Valentine’s gift for TL. As you can see, they look like an intriguing amalgam between roadkill and turds:



No, seriously, they are. And their rather, shall we say, disreputable appearance, is just my way of keeping small hands off them. Well, that’s my story, anyway.

    Oh lovely girl, you crack me up! I expect the turds taste nicer than they look, and the cupcakes are divine! A day too late, but divine all the same :o) xxxx

      Luckily, they do taste nicer than they look – or did, I should say. Looking forward to the next contest, ahem, concordat xxx

    Show off. That’s all I’m saying. I bet you waited until we’d all posted so you could have the whole day to yourself . . . pft

    • Dulwich Divorcee Says:

      Yep, you’ve got me there, Tara, it was all a very carefully planned exercise in prevarication executed with masterly panache *cough* actually I forgot ….

  3. Rosie Scribble Says:

    Did English Mum just use the word turd? Shocker!

    Your cupcakes are gorgeous if a little late. If I had had an extra day mine would have won first place rather than third.


    • Dulwich Divorcee Says:

      Personally I am utterly shocked by English Mum, where does she get this language from? Not from English Grandma, that’s for sure ….Yes, I’m certain that if you’d had an extra day you could have iced another batch of cupcakes reading ‘….or else’ xx

  4. Linda Says:

    I want me some turds that look like that.

    • Dulwich Divorcee Says:

      Happy to send you over the recipe dearest, but it does take special skill to make them look that ropey xx

  5. Heather Says:

    ahh, cunningly disguised treats to keep the ids at bay. i like your thinking!

  6. Mummy Bear Says:

    I actually quite fancy the look of the turdy truffles…I am not big into icing but ten out of ten for the love hearts! I feel inspired to bake, I won’t, but I feel inspired none the less!

    Love it – make the good stuff look a little (whisper, sorry not trying to be rude) *rap, and you get to eat it all yourself. Clever cupcake maker, you’ll never have to do a school bakesale ever again!

    • Dulwich Divorcee Says:

      I tend to delegate the bakesales to the kids for obvious reasons ….last time Child Two triumphed with Flat Brownies (we forgot to put in the eggs!!)

  8. Alcoholic Daze (Addy) Says:

    The Cupcakes and truffles look great. It’s what they taste like that counts!!!!

  9. Chic Mama Says:

    All these cupcake posts are making me feel inadequate!! I want to make some but ALONE…no children allowed.Ever since Met Mum published her delicious sounding custard icing I’ve had a craving to try. I may just have a go later! ;0)
