Loving these pics of the babes wearing my glasses (that make me look like I should have a fake nose and mustache attached to them!):
Apart from taking geeky instagram pics of the children, I made rhubarb cupcakes with our rhubarb from the garden. A proud moment indeed - I have been trying to grow rhubarb unsuccessfully for ages - and now its in full flourish!
I used this lovely recipe on Sugar and Spice and all things Iced and I just changed the way I made the rhubarb purée (details below) and they turned out just deliciously!
2 cups chopped raw rhubarb
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
3 tablespoons water
Simmer all ingredients in a pan until the rhubarb has softened to a purée. This takes around 5 minutes. Allow to cool before adding to the recipe.
