I got this recipe from The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook and it's the first time I've made it. I love a cupcake but I have to say even I found these ones very sweet. However if you do have a sweet tooth then they could be the ones for you. My frosting didn't turn out as normal either today - I'm just maybe not having a good baking day to be honest! I was going to abandon this effort altogether but was happy that I'd used some Pasmak on the cakes. I received a packet of Pashmak as a gift - it is 'persian fairy floss' and the flavour I have is Rose. It is like a refined version of seaside candy floss. The make of my packet is Pariya - it's worth trying just for the unusual texture - it's a bit like fibreglass! As the cupcakes were already very sweet I thought I'd gild the lily just a bit more by adding a little finish of pasmak on the top.
