(Supposedly) one of the most delicious cupcakes I have ever made! I wouldn't know - none were left for me to try =)) but all the ingredients were amazing, that much I can say =)

So, for the recipe: I used a basic recipe for fruity muffins I have, just left out 200g of blueberries that usually go into the batter.

How I made the peanut butter and jelly cupcakes? Simple. I made basic muffins and once they were cool (they're almost always cool. Cool cool cool =), made a hole in the top. I filled the hole with homemade sour cherry marmalade (you can use whatever jam or marmalade is your favourite) and then added the peanut butter frosting (recipe follows a little down the page). 

---------------------------------

Basic muffins

250g flour
1 pack of baking powder
1 egg
150g sugar (I always take half white and half brown sugar)
8 tablespoons of sunflower oil
150 ml milk
1 pack of vanilla sugar

1.  Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. 
2.  Mix the flour with the baking powder (I usually sift the baking powder because it tends to stick together).
3.  In a bowl mix the egg until fluffy. Add sugar, vanilla sugar, oil and milk. 
4.  Add the flour and baking powder mix to the egg mix and mix until smooth. (This is where I usually add the fruit e.g. blueberries).
5.  Line a muffin pan with papers. Fill them with the batter (3/4 full if you want to add some frosting). Bake for approx. 12-15 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.

Peanut butter frosting

Peanut butter
Butter
Icing sugar (which is powdered sugar)

1.  In a bowl mix butter until very fluffy. 
2.  Add icing sugar - as much as you want the frosting to be sweet (I don't like the peanut butter frosting to be too sweet, so I used only a few tablespoons). 
3.  I used about the same amount of peanut butter and butter (both probably about half a cup each). I improvised =) So if you feel the frosting is too runny, add sugar and/or butter.


Hope I inspired someone to bake them - don't be a fool! You know you want them =)

I love photoshoots.

well, to be frank [which is not my original birthname, but ok] I've only had two up until now =) but! I enjoyed both of them very extensively and enormously [wow, that's a sentence you don't hear every day =)].

my dear Metka has made some space in her otherwise pretty full time-space-continuum schedule and we were quickly off to a nearby summery location - with, as you can see, we swam in flora =D

the other gorgeous model in the photos is the talented and adorable stand-up comedian Tanja Kocman [if you have the opportunity to see her live, it's highly recommended =)].

yeah, you can see that it wasn't a dull photoshoot at all =) she's done a marvellous job portraying us! [yeah, don't worry about the knife-cosita, we just have really weird humour =) ]

so this is past folies pt. 3 -- or as I like to call it - the photographic one;

well [as you can see for yourself], I'm no photographer in any way, but my brother and me like to experiment with some weird photography stuff [no! not that kind of stuff =)].

and today I came across some of these photos we've taken quite some time ago and rediscovered their sheer mad beauty [not necessarily the object in the photo - I'm talking about the pure esthetic aspect of it, gee =)]!

check them - I want to see any responses =)
