Well today was not my most successful day of baking cakes ever. I decided today to experiment with a new buttercream recipe (swiss meringue to be precise). And I must admit that whilst time consuming this turned out pretty well, very light and tasty really! Note to self however, remember to leave the cake to cool overnight before filling with swiss meringue buttercream - otherwise this happens:

What can I say other than... WHOOPS!!! And a very big apology to my lovely friend Kat whose birthday cake this was supposed to be. But to make it up to her I have made her these retro inspired cupcakes instead!
