Notes about this recipe

  • melissabazley on May 14, 2011

    Great little morsels, not very chocolatey though!! Great texture, very light and smooth. The icing proportions are not correct. I used the juice of 1/2 lemon and it was super runny. I ended up adding over another 200g of icing sugar just to get it semi-spreadable. I also put the icing mixture in the fridge to firm it up before spreading on the cup cakes. Excellent flavoured icing, however, looking at the photo, Jamie uses vanilla bean, not vanilla extract as listed in recipe.
