Pink Icing - with a difference.

When I was at the markets last week I saw these Blood Orange marked 'Super Juicy!' I have never tried or seen a blood Orange before and thought perhaps they'd be good for fruit Salad.
I haven't had a chance to make any fruit Salad yet and haven't baked in what feels like an absolute age ( Still trying to find my balance and rhythm )

icing coloured with a blood orange.
So when I baked Chocolate Cupcakes this afternoon the blood Orange called to me from the bowl - perhaps because I was adapting an orange cake recipe. The kids are happy to have pink icing and it is a great citrus compliment in addition to the Choc cake.
Pink icing free of artificial colours : )

  1. This is such a clever idea, I never would have thought it would colour the icing. I bet they taste yummy, citrus is always a winner for me. Have a great weekend. xo

  5. I love blood oranges! They're also good sliced up (across the segments) and served with chocolate tart & cream for a bit of fanciness if you're having people over for dinner. Very simple but very striking :-)
