Mothers Day

As it was Mother's Day yesterday I thought I'd made a little something for my mum and gran to have.  I got the idea for these little cakes from http://sweetapolita.com/blog/ and had a lot of fun (and made a lot of mess) making them.

I baked a square of chocolate sponge and 4 coffee cupcakes and then cut them into shapes before filling some with buttercream; orange for the squares and rose for the hearts, and coating them with chocolate buttercream before covering them in melted chocolate.  Plus theres some cake balls in there too.

Mum had already asked me to make a cake for her to give to Gran so I baked a coconut and orange sponge; its a fruitcake type sponge so its' fairly heavy but it smelt amazing.

I hate being on a no-carb diet...
