Another paleo icing recipe

This is another icing recipe I found. I actually used a very similar recipe as chocolate mousse before I saw this. The avocados give the thick, smooth texture to it so it’s actually a nice chocolate fix for chocolate addicts like me. My processor couldn’t really beat the avocados very well (I think the quantity …

Paleo cupcakes

So when was the last time I wrote a post ? Months ago! Yes, it seems I’m horrible at this blogging thing. Maybe doing a PhD and blogging about baking just don’t work together but oh well. As much as I love baking, and more so cake decorating, I have been trying to eat healthier …
