Little Cakes

The really excellent thing about cupcakes, which it is just possible you may not have grasped, is that they are cakes which cook in a much shorter time than big cakes.  This means it can be a mere hour between the realisation that you truly need cake and the moment when you get the last dollop of (probably rather melty) icing onto the last cake and can get stuck into the cake itself.  Only biscuits go faster, and biscuits are excellent too, but sometimes, you really want cake.

These cakes range from the quick and simple to the elaborate and wedding-worthy, including one foray into the world of roasting and grinding chestnuts which is basically the definition of insanity (if you aren’t insane before you start, you will be before you are done), but is also quite delicious.  Then again, you would want it to be.
