|Me in my moment of fame in more! mag|
Yup, sharing the page with fellow 19 year old Conor Maynard is none other than little old me. And you, dear followers of handbagsandcupcakes of course had the opportunity to make your own magazine-worthy cupcakes before the rest of the UK even knew they existed! Thinking about it, this page in the mag probably isn't the best example of the diet of a 19 year old: pizza with curry sauce followed by Lindor cupcakes. It is, however, probably somewhat accurate for many a student out there.
I sent my recipe in to more! aaages ago, then a couple of months later I got a reply saying they wanted to use my recipe and asking me to answer their foodie related questions, then I got sent a copy of the Hummingbird Bakery recipe book (as if being in the mag wasn't enough of a prize, this book is amazing!), but I didn't actually know when my recipe was going to appear. It doesn't help that I'm currently living in Vienna working as an au pair... There's only so many times you can keep reminding your mum and sister to check more! mag for you.

Student, 19, Leicestershire
What's your favourite food?
A no-brainer for me - cake!
What's your guilty pleasure?
Cookie dough, cake mixture or icing. I also like peanut butter or Nutella straight from the jar with a spoon.
Where did you last eat out?
An Italian restaurant on holiday with my family.
What's your favourite takeout?
Indian. I love a creamy chicken korma with with a sweet coconut Peshwari naan bread.
What's your favourite family meal when you go home?
My mum's lasagne. Her cheese sauce cannot be beaten.
Sweet or savoury?
Sweet, every time. I could easily have three puddings for starter, main and dessert.
What do you drink when you go out?
Sweet drinks that don't really taste like alcohol! Malibu, Baileys and Amaretto are my faves.
Meat or veggie?
I'm not a big meat eater because I don't like the texture. I could happily be vegetarian - I love Quorn.
What's your signature dish?
Cakes. This one has a surprise inside. Yum!"
So there you have it! Reading it back, I realise I sound like a complete and utter sugar addict. I'm going to blame that on, erm, the editing. Yes. I'm not reeeaaally addicted to sugar. Sweet tooth? Me? Never. Just take a look at all my blog posts about, erm, cakes...
Moving on! This is extremely exciting for moi, as I can't say I'm used to appearing in national magazines. The teeensy "article" I had published in Star magazine about a year ago is in a frame in my bedroom. No joke.
