Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes

In theory these cupcakes were a fantastic idea.  In practice: not so much. You may recall that a while back I posted about my Surprise Pan, which is what I thought I would use to bake these bad boys.  The surprise pan lets me stick the treat onto a spike in the pan so that … Continue reading

Imperial Cookies, Take 2
