  32. ilianacanada says:

    Hello jemma I would like to ask you a recommendation to make mini cupcakes in my baby shower, I will have a boy in February and I would like to make a table of sweets with cupcakes and mini cupcakes related to the birth of my baby. I myself will prepare everything, so I would like it to be very rich but sensible to perform and decorate and still festive …. you could recommend me some simple recipe and decoration for both cupcakes … I would like them to be different, so that If you see the table varied, so that the minicupcakes differ from the normal size cupcakes. And if it were possible that I could leave them ready the day before to not be running that same day since I am pregnant and I will do everything alone. Thanks in advance if you have time to answer my question. Iliana from Canada.

    Seriously, she has THEE most amazing fringe; I can't stop looking at how straight it is 😮 #jelly

  34. Bouquets and Buttercream says:

    I've been hunting for a decent MPC recipe for ages & when I watched this last night I just had to give it a go. I don't keep booze in so went & got some brandy today & Oh my lord, I'm so glad I did! Without doubt THE BEST recipe I've found so far & I'm not even joking when I say I ate 5 of them still warm from the oven! Also, that buttercream is to die for! Thank you soooo much! 😀

  35. Tinka Grujić says:

    Hi Jemma!
    I love the way you iced your cupcakes just with a spatula and I can see you have a lot of practice! I love the thing that you don't always have to use a piping bag to ice your cupcake, and with spatula it's not just beautiful as if you were to pipe them, but it's also quicker!
    Also, nice touch with the cookies…beside sprinkling demerara on top, you could sprinkle some cinnamon too!
    Keep up the good work and I wish you, your family and your friends (and everyone on earth of course) a very Happy Christmas! 🎄🎉❤️😍🤗

  36. Kennedy Dubitz says:

    Hi Jemma, my mom and I were wondering what authentic figgy pudding is? We would like to hear back from you. Thanks. We enjoy your show so very much, we don't miss an episode. love from Canada!

  37. Coffee Pot Productions says:

    YouTube, I'm glad this person made a significant amount of money for you this year, but please stop rubbing it in my face.

  38. Alycia Beatty says:

    What are some other ways you can use burnt butter? I love the idea of throwing that in recipes!!!

  39. Pamela Hinds says:

    Feel sorry for your tree…poor's half dead 😂

  40. Kevin Owen says:

    Damn! .. and I thought mince pies couldnt get any better!

  41. Twili Vaati says:
