Petit Pois- inspirational cupcakes

February 25, 2011

To be honest, I pretty much think all cupcakes are inspirational. But these ones are just so different. I know recipes for healthy cupcakes are nothing new- but this new Petit Pois range seems to have got it just right.

Behold: low calorie, high veg content (chocolate and beetroot, anyone?), preservative free, all-natural cupcakes. I’m even loving the little green pea on top.

They’re available from Selfidges from March 15th and come in 4 flavours- vanilla, chocolate, lemon and orange. I think I need to do some experimenting of my own… but maybe I’ll just buy some of these to start with.

Valentine’s Day Truffles.

I made these for the boy, for Valentine’s Day- which we spent in the living room, on a picnic rug, surrounded by good food and candles and watching films- The Princess Bride and Chocolat. Perfection!

Truffles made from this recipe here.
