2013 seems to have flown past so quickly that it’s now the 9th of January 2014 and I still haven’t posted my wrap-up post! 2013 was a busy, exciting and sometimes stressful year. I travelled a lot – both domestically and internationally, the blog has been steadily attracting more attention and I feel my photography skills are evolving, I sold my cupcakes at a cafe and directly to customers, I gained many new freelance design clients, I produced and sold my own range of mini food and travel magazines, and I am finally getting the ball rolling on a few personal dream projects (which you will hear more about soon)!
I actually found it quite interesting to go through Google Analytics and find out what recipes my readers loved most this year, and am sharing my 5 most popular recipes:
These cupcakes are fun to make and heavenly to eat, so I am not surprised this came in as my #5 most popular recipe!
A rare healthy recipe for Love Swah, but this recipe I created was a hit with health nuts and dessert-lovers alike!
I took the humble red velvet cupcake and jazzed it up for Valentine’s Day – by icing it with white chocolate buttercream and hiding a delicious treat in the centre – a Lindt ball!
I managed to include not 1 but 2 types of alcohol in this boozy cake delight for St Patrick’s Day! Adding beer to chocolate cake may sound weird, but I honestly think it’s one of the best chocolate cakes I’ve ever made.
And… drumroll please… my most popular recipe for 2013? This one won by a landslide!
I did a series of Microwave Mug Cakes this year that were all really well received, but after my “breakfast in a cup” banana bread-style mug cake got featured on The Kitchn it really took off!
I hope you all have had a great start to 2014 and I look forward to sharing it with all my lovely readers. Thank you for your support!
