A cupcake selection

Cupcakes are fun and easy to make. I try to come up with something different all the time but when you make hundreds of cupcakes a week sometimes it is not that easy.

pardon the use of my phone camera.
 it can not be compared to the real thing but at work there is no other option most of the time

Playing with Chocolate

This is simply a humble Chocolate cake, just out of the fridge. 

What can be more fun than Plying with Chocolate? And a camera of course ;)

Rye Sourdough

Hmm, ok I brought a Rye Sourdough home so I can take some nice photos. 

It was my first ever batch of real Rye Sourdough so 

I wanted to take some nice photos... 


This was all that was left before I could take my camera out
