I tried to decorate with frosting but failed.  My frosting too watery.  End up, got to use strawberry to hide the imperfection.  keke….  Lousy me….

I like the taste of the muffins.  Not too buttery and just right sweetness.  And this round, no overflowing at all.  Phew~ So going to bake this again.

Ingredients:

75g butter

75g caster sugar

2 eggs beaten

75g self raising flour

1/2 tsp Almond extract (* I used Vanilla Essence)

110g candied (glace) cherry, chopped (* I used strawberries but I did not candied them)

Frosting:

75g icing sugar

2 tsp hot water

Methods:

1. Beat butter & sugar till light & fluffy.

2. Gradually add the eggs alittle at a time and blend well.

3. Sift in flour & gently fold into the mixture with almond extract & cherries.

4. Spoon into the paper cup & bake for 12 – 15 minutes or till golden.

5. Preheat over @ 180 degree.

Frosting method:

Sift icing sugar into a bowl & stir in enough hot water to make a thick frosting.  You may search the web for better methods though.

My nieces been asking me to make Jelly Heart Cake.  Was wondering what is that.  Finally, found a recipe that looks yummy from Happy Home Baking.

It’s really easy, just that after every steps, must wait for some time.  First step, 30 mins, second step, at least 4 hours and last but not least…  I cut my cake the next day.  🙂

My niece came to my house after school.  She had 2 pcs and said it’s yummy.  And she packed 2 pcs home too.  hee….  Glad she likes it.
