COOKIE MONSTER

COOKIE MONSTER

A while ago I made these beauties! A cupcake and a cookie!
They were so delicious!
To make them:

For the Buns:
100g Marg
100g Sugar
100g Self raising flour
2 eggs
and a drop of vanilla essence

Pre heat the oven to 150 degrees on an electric fan oven! All I do is cream together the marge and sugar and then beat in the eggs with a splash of vanilla. After this you fold in the flour.
Put the cases into a bun tin, I normally get 12 cupcakes out of it.
They should take about 20 mins, but check on them!

Once they are cooled you can apply the Icing!
First I cut out a smiley mouth onto the top of each bun!

Next I make the icing or you can do this while it’s in the oven! To make the icing I never use measurements I always just go by what looks right (Normally I have some left)
So to make the icing I put some marg in a bowl with a splash of milk, vanilla and blue colouring. Then I add in the icing sugar til its the right consistancy for spreading on a cake! (for a non baker i’m sorry if this isn’t useful!)

Then put the icing onto the bun, make sure you remember which side you cut the mouth out of and (I bought a pack of maryland choc chip cookies and cut them in half) then place your half cookie into the mouth section.

then put the eyes on (you can also make these while the buns are cooking!) For the eyes i rolled some fondant icing into circles and used a black cake pen to create the eye hole! once the icing is on and the cookie is in place the eyes on.

Then start on the next cupcake….it works best doing the combination all at once rather than all the mouths then all eyes because the icing hasn’t set on the bun when you do do them individually therefore everything sticks better!

This is so true, so I have dusted off my gym card and today I start my exercise challenge…Well i need to set a goal line first…also I really need to know how to properly use weights because I watch someone (slyly while I am on the cross-trainer) and feel like the next Arnie however I am sure I’m not really doing anything! 

FRIDAY

Since starting a Monday to Friday job I totally now get that Friday feeling where I know I am going to be off for TWO WHOLE DAYS!! 

I will now have a chance to actually read!! 

oh yea and go out for lunch tomorrow 🙂

T-Rex

 

So my sister is really into animals and has now brought home a Tortoise, I have nicknames T-Rex because it just makes me think in a previous life it would have been a dinosaur! 

I am firstly going to block the myth they are slow, yea they aren’t really fast but you would be surprised at the speed it can shift once its warm!

Due to its size ours now doesn’t hibernate so it’s awake all year! 

The cat also is unsure on it, kill it, torment it or leave it be, its not sure what to do, normally he’s a total hunter who is a mass murderer of birds and mice! 

Resolutions?

I do not normally like to make resolutions because I never stick to them, however this year I am going to make an aim for New Year, which is to stop neglecting my blog and attempt to write on it every week! 

I have finally gotten a new full time job, which has just taken up so much of my time combined with spare time taken up with Christmas. Now it’s time to get into my job and attempt to move forward.
