Growing up I can remember walking down Bank Street in my hometown whilst carrying out errands with my Mam. I remember this particular street as there is an old fashioned coffee shop situated a few doors down the road, the kind that grind their own coffee in the basement. The smell from the freshly ground coffee would fill the street especially on a warm day.

As I have grown up the love of a fresh cup of coffee has never really taken hold but I do love to bake with it. Coffee like most things in life is better when you use a quality ingredient. As Mr Boo loves his coffee I’m quite lucky in that I can ‘borrow’ one or two of his coffee pods, the ones that are Nespresso compatible capsules (shh don’t tell him). Mr Boo prefers to use a traditional brand like Caffe Cagliari, they are a family company steeped in over 100 years of Italian history. Alessandra Cagliari, the great great grand daughter of the founder handles the marketing and packaging today, it reminds me of that little coffee shop I knew as a child.

Whilst I love to make the odd coffee & walnut cake it can be a little time consuming so I want to share with you my Espresso Buttercream recipe, a great caffeine filled treat that can be placed on top of cupcakes (a fabulous treat for your little ones school teachers). Add to either vanilla, chocolate or even coffee cupcakes.
