Cherry Bakewell Cupcakes
Birthday celebrations always require cakes and birthdays at work require cakes even more!

As it was my colleagues birthday, I decided (after much deliberation) to make some Cherry Bakewell Cupcakes. I got this particular recipe from BBC Food Recipes, these cupcakes were featured on The Great British Bakeoff and were created by Holly Bell (who has her own blog). They're fun and tasty; perfect for a birthday treat! To give these cupcakes the signature Bakewell flavour, I modified the recipe slightly by adding almond essence in the icing instead of lemon, just to give it another punch of almond flavour (who doesn't love almonds?).
