Yesterday I made my first batch of Hot Cocoa cupcakes! They came out exactly as I was hoping they would. I used more cocoa powder than flour, plenty of vanilla, and heavy cream instead of milk. This made them come out nice and moist, fluffy, with a silky texture and tasting a lot like a cup of cocoa! I topped them with a lightly sweetened whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and a piece of Cadbury’s Flake. They looked super cute, and tasted great. I’m not sure I’ll need to change the recipe on this one – tasters so far say I’ve got it right the first time! I’m super excited to share these with all my tasters.

Welcome to TamsinCakes! TamsinCakes are locally made, handcrafted cupcakes with unique yet sophisticated flavors. We are currently in the very early stages, developing recipes and brainstorming flavor ideas. It’s all very exciting!!

As I test and develop new flavors, I will be posting updates on this blog and on Twitter – you can follow us at @TamsinCakes.

Cupcake lovers in the SF Bay Area – I’m looking for Beta Testers to try out new flavors as I’m perfecting them & give feedback. Interested? Just leave a comment here and I’ll get in touch with more details. Don’t be shy – the more Beta Testers the better! No culinary expertise necessary, just a love of  delicious sweet things!
