Hello everyone!! Happy Thursday & welcome once again to a new edition of Ink & Batter!
Summer has arrived and although I have many recipes that I want to try and many ideas for book inspired cupcakes, Ink & Batter is gonna be taking a bit of a breather from its weekly schedule. It's too hot to get the oven cranking and to play with fondant (it dries up too easily and gets too sticky when modeling), so unless I get a few cooler days (with summer storms and lower temperatures...) I won't be baking as much.
But, this week there's a new collection of cupcakes! And this week once again Pivot Book Reviews's Cover Puppies and Ink & Batter are synching books!
And what book is the one inspiring Becca and me this week? The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes!
Check out Becca's Lainey Cover Puppies too!
I looked around in my liners bag and ended up settling for the lilac ones since they seem to match the colour of the back cover of the book best. When choosing decorations I had to have two, a cupcake with a mohawk (the author herself requested it) and one with a football (soccer) ball! As for the flavour, I went for chai cupcakes cause I noticed quite a few mentions of chai latte or chai tea while reading the book!
Football (soccer) ball and jersey, some of the different locations from the book, the book that started it all and a cupcake with a mohawk! I had a blast making these! Hope you guys will like them!
Hopefully I'll get to make more if the weather isn't too horribly hot! But at the very least, be on the lookout for Deliverance cupcakes Ink & Batter on it's release week! ;)
