I received a great book for Christmas. The Primrose Bakery Book of Cupcakes so I decided to give it a whirl yesterday and made some vanilla cupcakes with a white chocolate butter icing top!

They were delicious, though my dislike of anything chocolate did prevail. I thought white chocolate would be okay, and indeed I only had a slight taste, but it was quite evident that once again chocolate and I just were not meant to be.

Jon did have one which he enjoyed, so the rest are now in the freezer ready for his snack boxes in the New Year!

Talking of New Year I have made my resolution....
The only advice I am going to follow is advice I like or agree with!

Sound don't you think?

  1. You are the first woman I know that doesn't like the taste of chocolate.
    Beautiful cupcakes anyway. I'd love a taste myself.

  11. Now I'd have eaten at least two of those! I adore white chocolate but must curtail any ingestion because my body doesn't no how to say "No more!"

  13. I don't know many people who don't like chocolate to I do think you fall into the unique category and you're probably healthier than me as a result! Ah, well -- sin and chocolate go hand in hand! And I definitely agree with your advice! Wishing you a very Happy New Year! Enjoy!

  15. Wow, you could make cupcakes of ALL the letters; they'd have to be different colors, though...

  16. I love chocolate but give me a cupcake with topping on it, I'll just scrape them off, even if it's chocolate. I love chocolate on it's own.

  17. What a delicious "X"! Truly hits the spot!(<-- "X" marks the ?) Hope your New Year is just as yummy!

  18. I can't pretend to understand your disliking of chocolate, but the cupcakes look good all the same. I'll see what other (non-chocolate) cupcake recipes I can find.

  19. I, too, am not a fan of chocolate - and never have been. I think white chocolate is even less nice.

    Now LEMON cupcakes I would have stolen from your table!

  20. I'm told you either love cheese or chocolate - so why am I addicted to both? Maybe I like the chocolate for you. Your cupcakes look delicious, and the X is a very clever touch.

  21. They look as good as X's for kisses! Nice touch!

  22. Yummy. Love the look of the X as cupcake treasure!

  24. Just popped by to wish you every happiness for the New Year. I hope to be able to stop by more often soon. PS. Can't believe you don't like chocolate!

  25. Good heavens above, woman! You're letting the side down! You don't like chocolate ... ? Wha .. ?

    I've just eaten two squares of the most delicious 65% gourmet chocolate, sent up for Christmas by my brother. YUM!!

  26. Really nice, well they look tasty. My grandson does not like chocolate either.

    Happy New Year!

  27. It is quite alright with «Louis» that you shun chocolate. That leaves more for him...

    Bonne année!
