There are many occasions in life that call for 'special' food: birthdays, parties, graduations, holidays - you name it, you can celebrate it with special food. And then there are those times that deserve to be celebrated, just because they are. After all, who needs an excuse to bake a fabulous cake?
Here's a collection of some of our favourite recipes that are just a little bit fancy.
Book Cakes - These fun cakes take a bit of time and effort, but are much simpler than they look to make. And they pack a double wow - once when people see them, and once again when people taste them! :D
Double Chocolate Raspberry Cake - This impressive-looking cake is dead simple to make and tastes as fantastic as it sounds.
Double Layered Chocolate Mandarin Cupcakes - Cupcakes with two layers for an extra-fancy touch.
Lemon Meringue Cupcakes - Elegant cupcakes in a perfect flavour combination. These are suprisingly easy to make considering their 'wow' factor.
Spekulatius Cupcakes - Based on the flavours of traditional Dutch and German Christmas cookies, these cupcakes would make a good addition to the Christmas spread in the northern hemisphere.
