The dangerous bun diaries

 I have never eaten a chocolate bun with a cake fork before.......

However, today I made an exception. I'd made the buns last night and we nibbled a couple whilst still warm and un-iced.  Today, I made chocolate icing, using the 'add a bit of syrup' method. This gives the finished icing a slight caramelly flavour and the most impressive glossy shine and also helps to distract from the bitter-dry aftertaste that some cocoa powders leave.

I may have been a bit generous when I glooped the syrup...... so, on each bite a slow lava flow of thick chocolate icing oozed generously down the sides all over my fingers and my face and the more I wiped and licked, the more it spread... after I'd had two bites and had to first lick, then wash my hands each time, I resorted to a cake fork.

When, later, I handed them around with cake forks and mugs of tea and received curious looks - I explained 'they're dangerous buns - you'll need forks' they soon understood!

    1. I'd happily go with out cake - however it is an ever presence in our house due to the hollow legs of the menfolk I live with!

  8. Love your cupcakes; we make 'exploding' sandwiches that can only be eaten in the privacy of one's home! But I like finger licking.... x
