It’s a sunny Sunday here and I spent all afternoon walking around the city, having iced coffee and ginger beer, and counting down the days ’til we leave for Dubai (three!)
But it’s that time again: new post, new zodiac-inspired cupcake! Today I’ve got Cancer going on. My sun sign’s Virgo (check out that cupcake!) and my moon sign’s Cancer, so this is another one I’ve especially enjoyed doing.
Cancerians are born between June 20 and July 22 and, as their element is water, they’re known to be emotional, responsive, and sympathetic. They’re really good at giving advice because of this sensitivity and deep-rooted ability to empathise and to tap into other people’s emotions. Their heart rules their thinking. This also makes them loyal and dependable; a Cancerian’s a great friend to have.
With this strong tie to their emotions, they can also be moody, oversensitive, and self-pitying.
The flavour I’ve chosen is vanilla and marshmallow! Sweet, just like Cancerians, and with all the fluff that emotions bring.
The cupcake recipe is from ‘Lemon Sugar’ which you can find here. When they’d cooled from the oven, I cut out some of the middle, filled it with marshmallow creme, and replaced the top.
80g unsalted butter, room temperature
160g icing (confectioners’) sugar
Splash of coconut milk
Handful of desiccated coconut
2-3 tbsp blue food colouring
Mix all the ingredients together—make sure to sift in the icing sugar so it doesn’t get lumpy.
LIBRA will be up tomorrow!
