Frosting - cream cheese and buttercream.

yumyum cakes!
Frosting is a little funny sometimes, it might work out perfectly one time, and another time it just ends up being a runny mess.  here are some pointers to help you get it right.  

At the bottom of the post, there are a bunch of pictures, including "successful" and "failure" frostings. 

First of all, the most important things - it seems like a stupidly long list, but really, once you've made it once successfully, you'll see it's actually not hard!

Wild Asparagus and Greens Pasta (Wild, Natural foods take 2)

Springtime is a great time for foraging in Malta.  There are plenty of delicious and healthy options to find just on your weekend walk in the countryside (and sometimes, even just walking around residential areas!)
Happy Spaghetti sauce :)

Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes

Strawberries are in season.  They are at their best right now!  And it won't be long before you won't find them at the market!  I wanted to make as much use as possible this year, and amongst other things, have found this great recipe for strawberry cupcakes. 
These cupcakes are exactly what I was looking for! So good!
