More Henna Cupcakes




It had been almost a year since I last made henna cupcakes. It's a long process to make them but they are a labor of love and a becoming tradition for any given occasion. Both the white chocolate macademia nut cupcakes and the buttercream frosting are made from scratch. The frosting is almost the same consistency as henna so it's perfect to put it in an empty (homemade) henna cone. (I've tried pre-made frosting and the flow is just not the same--it always has to be made from scratch!) Each cupcake is then uniquely designed which takes about 3-4 minutes each.

What are some of your baking traditions/dishes?

P.S. It's soooo good to be back in the swing of things. Some NY snapshots here: 1, 2, 3

  4. I remember these! Glad they're a tradition, there's no way they could only make an appearance once.

  8. OMG - made from scratch?!! I'm sure it tastes amazing!! And more so, they look absolutely beautiful, Tana!! You are so good at making these... Hmmm baking traditions? I don't really have any! I'd love to bake more though, since baked goods are the absolute best! Since I'm allergic to wheat, I have a few GF recipes to try out, keeping my fingers crossed that they don't end up tasting like cardboard :( Hope you're having a great week, my lovely friend!! xoxo

    1. I love their taste because of the hazelnuts/macademia nuts/walnuts (we mix them up sometimes.) I'd love to bake more too, have you come across some GF recipes that you've liked? I'd really like to have less of it too. Thanks, Jessica! :)
