Lisa & India: cupcakes

There is something special about family recipes. Handed down by generations, sometimes in written form and at times, simply memorised.

Once upon a time, Lisa learnt to make cupcakes by baking with her mother. And now the tradition is being preserved through India; star baker and self confessed ‘cake monster’.

Miss ‘Indie Pops’. The cutest and most stylish four year old I know. This isn’t just a “let’s put on a pretty dress and flowers in your hair because we are having a photo shoot today!” look; this is the essence of India. I know that because I  follow her on Instagram!

Quality control.

Cupcake baking is exhausting. A quick lunch break before part two: icing.

The Coopers are fun and a bit crazy, in the best possible way. Never a dull moment with India around. Together as a family they love to spend quality time; just the three of them (soon to be four) & have picnics in the garden. Favourite weekend traditions include walks in the forest followed by a visit to the local coffee shop: Americano for Daddy, skinny latte for mummy and strawberry milkshake for India. Why of course.

Et voila: delicious, colourful, homemade cupcakes, the taste of childhood. Great job, India and well done for keeping the tradition alive!
