A repeat: the best frosting ever!

I know, I know, cupcakes are SO 2010.

But since I have a preference for bite-sized food and pixie versions of any kind, I can’t let go of them completely. If they’re good I mean.

There are so many bad recipes for cupcakes out there, and some are focused more on the decorations (urgh for sugarpaste) than the flavour. But I have two great recipes for you.

The chocolate cupcake from The Hummingbird Bakery is first class (and I thoroughly recommend their first cookbook) and this frosting recipe which is totally weird (you start with a roux) is utterly delicious and not too sweet or sickly.
