  3. Hi Kit,

  8. Your jasmine cupcakes look so lovely. And I'd love to have some donuts too, please! :)

  9. I am also not a fan of buttercream and much prefer Creme Chantilly. Lovely cupcakes, very pretty frosting.

  10. Kit , crème chantilly's a great alternative to buttercream frosting , much lighter and easier to make :D Lovely cupcakes you got there ! I love your beautifully-piped frosting :)

  11. Wow that sounds terrific! Great job :)

    Happy Blogging!

  19. These look so delicate and beautiful! Where did you get jasmine extract from and what did you think of the flavour? I made jasmine cupcakes previously but used teabags and found the flavour very subtle.

  20. Hi Kit, aiyoh... so sorry I miss a few of your posting. Love this cake, the topping is so cute and look too good to be eaten. With the jasmine extract, I'm sure it smell and taste heavenly. Very pretty flowers, beside baking you're very good in gardening. :)
