This is my voyage of discovery into the beautiful world of the cupcake while I try to decide if I should try to sell them. Any advice or comments would be very well received :)

Well my first effort for my fireworks cupcakes has gone a bit wrong. The idea was to put hundreds and thousands in the batter as I had heard that the colours would then spot through the cake. Obviously these weren't the best hundreds and thousands as there is not a lot of spotting...either that or I should have put more in! The second part was to put popping candy on top so that you got the bang but it got very sticky very quickly and just doesn't seem to have its pop when you bite into the cake. So back to the drawing board I go.
The chocolate orange ones worked out lovely. They are an orange cupcake, orange frosting and a chocolate orange ganache piped into the middle.
