Sainsbury’s Hidden Centre Cupcakes

Hidden centre cupcakes

I do love a good cupcake, or in the case of when I make them at home tiny fairycake, and am always envious about ones that come nicely iced because icing with a piping bag is probably my worst skill in the kitchen. The soft swishy cake against the sweet and well-formed icing makes for […]
