Mark McNulty - "Since Ella, my daughter was 5 her and I love to make my cupcakes. It is a recipe given to me by a friend who owns a local café. To this day we still make this recipe, and she is now 13 years old. It is one of those rare times that we put the phones down, turn off the tv, concentrate on one task, have fun, chatting and getting messy turning these ingredients into the tastiest buns. We then knock the doors of our neighbours and share the cupcakes with them. Simply a great way to bond with my daughter."
