Ms Cupcake Golden Syrup Cupcakes and a Roller Marathon

After the long awaited release date I finally got my hands on a copy of Ms Cupcakes recipe book.
Ive been a fan of Ms Cupcake since my first encounter when I stopped off there before visiting a Roller Derby game in London, Ms Cupcake was at the game too, as one of her staff was a roller girl too.
I don't get to visit as much as I like, but I am always looking at the tasty photos of their treats online.
I have always been really impressed with their cakes, especially the Gluten Free ones, as they taste equally as good as the wheaty ones.

This weekend I skated 26 miles for charity as part of the South Coast Roll at Goodwood motor circuit. Our team Basingstoke Bullets skated a total of 583.2 miles and raised £500 for the Youth Sports Trust. It was hard work to skate 26 miles but I was so happy to have the support of my team.

As the tradition seems to go, I make a batch of vegan GF cupcakes for all the gang.
I have been eyeing up my new cupcake book for a few days and eventually made my choice.

 Im really addicted to golden syrup porridge and the smell of it sends me into a frenzy.
I thought about making vanilla cupcakes as anything too fancy might not suit everyones taste buds, (cinnamon haters) but when I saw this Golden Syrup Cupcake Recipe I knew I had to make them.
Icing using a plastic bag, next time I will be using real icing kit.
The best things bout Ms Cupcakes book (apart from the beautiful 50's style photos) is the English-American ingredients translation, as I have never known what to use in my frosting/buttercream as a shortening, the book suggest Trek, which is pretty solid at room temperate which makes for perfect frosting on a sunny day.

Jaffa Cakes and Turkish Delight Cake are high on my to make list as well as custard icing!
Ive already spurred a few friends curiosity to buy the book with my cupcake photos on Instagram DropkickNoMercy.
You should buy Ms Cupcakes book and then join a Roller Derby team; this sport seems to come with vegan cakes (and sometimes vegans too).
