Mrs Woog Bakes. And a KitchenAid Giveaway!

Sponsored by Tic Tac

It had been brought to my attention recently that I had never blogged a recipe. I was issued a challenge, and I am always up for pushing myself out of my comfort zone, so I accepted.

You see, we have one of those super fancy mixers that sits collecting dust on the kitchen bench.

It is super fancy and super shiny. Mr Woog has used it twice and if I can be honest, I use it everyday. As a storage facility.

So lets get a baking!
First up, clean out the bowl and give it a bit of a rinse. Then take some time to prepare all of the ingredients you will need to make your cupcakes. This is important because you do not want to get halfway through the process and realise you have forgotten something really essential.

Place all ingredients in the bowl making sure you leave at least one small piece of eggshell in it. (Because I could not get it out. It is now the signature element of this dish)
Then blast it!


Mix for about 5 minutes. Use this time to get together the apple component of this cupcake.


It is important to select the finest produce you can find. Look for an even, glossy colour, a fragrant aroma and make sure it is firm to the touch.

Spoon your smooth, velvety mixture into a cupcake pan that you of course have already lined. Because you are a professional, remember…
Make sure you distribute the mixture evenly.

Or not…….
Whack them in a pre-heated oven set at 180 degrees and settle down on the couch for 15 minutes to watch some infomercials and lick the bowl. Please set a timer here.

Cool your cakes down in the fridge and turn your attention to prepping the fruit. Fill a little bowl with Green Apple Tic Tacs.

Next step, spend about 45 minutes trying the get the right consistency of icing together. Add a bit of icing sugar, add a bit of milk, then more icing sugar then a bit more milk.

Until you have enough icing sugar to decorate Kim Kardashian’s wedding cakes for the rest of her life.


Turn your iced cupcake upside down and ever so gently, press into the apple mixture. And you find yourself with a delightful treat, suitable for when even the most poshest of friend pops over unexpectedly for a cuppa. It is a taste sensation, made possible from the tiny little green apple taste explosions that the Tic Tacs provide!


Who said I could not bake! Oh ye of little faith……

But a super cook must always respect her ingredients and tools. Should you find yourself wanting to re-create my dish, you will need yourself one of these.
