Continuing with our picnic bake series we thought these cupcakes would be perfect for a garden party! I know we are living in hope that the weather will stay nice!! Coincidently there seems to be a shortage of flakes in Ireland and the UK as we are doing this tutorial. We promise we don’t have a huge stash somewhere but we did mange to get a packet of regular flakes! They finish the cupcakes off perfectly. Chocolate, Coffee, Baileys, need I say more! If you are making these for kids you can substitute the Baileys for regular fresh milk and/or cocoa powder instead of instant coffee.
