Meet Tallulah, our shy Top Tip Fairy


Hello Im Tallulah the Top Tip Fairy.

I just love baking but Im a bit shy. I will pop out from behind my Cupcake every so often to whisper a tip or two and hope you find them useful in you baking journey



The easiest way to get your baking ingredients to room temperature is to simply allow them to sit at – room temperature. Simples?? But this method usually means that you have to plan ahead. I ten to plan teh night before and when i get up , or should I say rudely awakened by lil Cupcake once the kettle is on I get my eggs and Butter out ready for an afternoonsd baking session.

However that said , sometime s I get the urge to bake at a silly time so if your like me , what do you do?

There are a few tips I can share with you but you have to promise toshare your last minuite bakes with me. Send your photos to and Ill share the on my facebook page

Tip #1 Eggs

Place eggs in a bowl and cover them with warm (not hot) tap water. Allow the eggs to sit in the water for about 5 minutes or until they are no longer cool to the touch.


Tip #2 Butter
( There are a few) 
The easiest way to bring frozen butter to room temperature to take out your handy  veggie grater and grate the butter into a bowl.
Within no time, your butter will be soft and ready to be added to your favorite recipe. 
If you have a little bit of time on your hands,( I generally dont)  you can cut the butter into fourths and then cube into smal
l pieces. The smaller the cubes, the quicker the butter will soften. Just leave them at room temperature for about an hour or until soft to the touch.
Microwaving Butter , now this can be tricky as you may end up with a pool of butter so make sure to be patient and take care
1.) Place the butter on a microwave safe plate. Leave the paper wrapper on, but make sure its NOT a foil wrapped wrapper
2.) Place the plate int
o the microwave and heat on high power for 5 seconds. Open microwave give the butter a 1/4 turn ( Turn it on its side) and heat again for 5 seconds. Do this on all four long sides of the  butter. Typically after about 20-25 seconds my butter is perfect. This time will vary depending on your microwave 

We hope these tips are useful, please share your photos with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter
