Let’s Bake! (Lemonade Cupcakes Edition)

While going through Anni’s blog for my Have You Met series, I came across all her delicious looking cupcakes. So I decided to try her Lemonade Cupcake recipe. Be sure to check out her post as she is the one who originally shared it 😀

Also, I can’t wrap my head around mls and grams, as I go by cups, so I’ve done some conversions.

As always, first make sure you have what you need.

For the cupcakes:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract/essence
  • 1/4 cup (almost) vegetable oil
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup (almost) Fanta (or other orangey sodas out there)

For the topping:

  • 1 cup (almost) cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup (not quite 3/4 but more than 1/2) sour cream
  • 1 package vanilla pudding powder

Meg blogs over at Wandering Meg. She’s based in Sheffield, England. She’s 20, and is currently a university student. She started her blog in January. She blogs three times a week, about “travel, lifestyle, beauty and everything in-between” as her tagline says!

Like with many of my blogging friends, I can’t remember how long I’ve been following Meg or who find who first! Nevertheless, we’ve been supportive of each other, and I always love checking out what Meg has been writing about, and I especially love seeing where she’s visited!

Here’s a extra snippet about Meg from her About page:

One of my main interests is Travel and I am currently trying to see the world one city at a time alongside my best friends and boyfriend, funded only by a student loan and a piggybank.

Very ambitious plans, and she’s so far been doing very well!

Here are some of my favourite posts of hers:

In this post, Meg asked her friends and family to share about their favourite trips. It’s so much fun to read about the range of travel adventures that is shared 😀

As the title says, Meg shares the things that make her happy. It’s always important to take note of the little things around us that make us happy!

Meg writes about tips to help shop more ethically, and to be more aware of the clothes we’re buying and how they came to be. Definitely an important topic.

Meg recently celebrated her 20th birthday! For this she comes up with a list of things you should try to do before turning the big 2-0. Also, she shares a baby photo of herself, and I had to include it in this post! 😀

To celebrate her 6 month blogiversary, Meg shares with us all the story of how Wandering Meg came to be. She’s always been a fan of blogs, and had lots of stories and recommendations to share. The final push she needed was a kick up the backside by her roommate and best friend Amy.

Josh and Meg celebrated her 20th birthday in style with a trip to Budapest!! I love seeing travel posts to places I have never seen (don’t we all?) and this is chock full of lots of pictures, adventures, and apparently 38 degree heat.

Meg has recently moved, and in this post, shares with us her new set up. She got inspired, and makes it cosy and well-lived in!

Be sure to also check out Meg on Instagram!
