gluten free cupcakes

It’s party time!  Your best friend is celebrating her hen party at home, and she clearly stated she doesn’t mean to go to Temple Bar, crawling from pub to pub and heading to the Coppers.  She’d rather staying with you and the other fellas, sipping some prosecco and watching some old funny pictures. Baking some colorful and tasty cupcakes could be a good start to kick-off the party!

Here you find our party food quick recipe for you!



3 eggs

½ cup of oil (120ml)

1 cup of milk

1 cup of sugar (160g)

2 (really) full spoons of pure cacao powder (Cacao, not Cocoa…the healthier and tastier option for chocolate lovers!)

1 ½ cup of gluten free flour mix (180g) – if using regular wheat flour the quantity changes to 2 cups


First, break the eggs carefully to separate the white from the yolks.

In a blender jug, join the oil, milk and egg yolks and beat it for a couple of minutes until it gets pale color.

Stop and add the sugar, cocoa powder and half of the flour. Blend it again until the dough is well mixed.

Stop and add the rest of the flour and blend the dough again for a couple of minutes. Place the dough in a bowl.

Apart beat the egg whites till stiff peaks are formed.

Slowly join the fluffy white eggs to the dough, using a spatula. At this stage we cannot beat the mix, but with delicate movements keep involving the white eggs with the dough, making sure the fluffy texture is kept and that we have a homogeneous mix.

Place small portions of the dough in cupcakes cases, filling it until 2/3; the cupcakes will grow even with no yeast and the size is gonna be just perfect!

Here you can learn how to make delicious gluten free cupcakes.


½ can of condensed milk (about 200ml)

The double measure of milk (about 400ml)

2 sifted egg yolks (to get rid of the strong egg smell, we recommend carefully remove the thin membrane which involves the yolk)

Cracked Walnuts

1 full teaspoon of butter


Add all the ingredients in a pan and under low-medium heat, keep stirring the mix with a wooden spoon until the cream gets a tick velvety texture.

Once the filling is cooled down, you can simply use a knife to do a use a piping bag with a filling nozzle so you can push it into the muffin center (be careful to do not break the muffin or reach its button).

Squeeze the bag firmly, but carefully, and automatically you will feel the bag being pushed back; so keep bringing the bag up until the top.


Use icing and decoration as you desire. Nowadays we can easily find ready icing in TescoMarks SpencerDecobakeFallon & Byrn shops and many others.

Every guy, rich or not, enjoys the last day of his bachelorhood with some of his closest and intimate buddies partying in some upscale restaurant or a club with a lot of booze and women. If the guys can, why cannot the women? Hen parties are those parties where the “bride to be” enjoys her last day before marriage with her women gang. It is a party where no guys are allowed. It is an all-girls party and of course, the men can join them on a condition that they are the strip-stars.

Now that the women are to celebrate the event, how can there not be a specific theme. Hen party themes are the real essence of these parties. Let us see some of the best hen party themes prevalent in the UK at present.




The all pink theme symbolizes femininity. Pink is for the girls, and all the set up is done in the pink shades from the dresses to the backgrounds and balloons. It is a tribute to that bride who is who is full of feminine genes.




Every girl in her schooldays has a fantasy to join the coveted cheerleader’s club and cheer for her team. She has a secret wish to wear those skimpy cheerleader dresses and make her presence felt by her alluring moves. If your “bride to be” missed the experience, let her enjoy it the very last day of her freedom.




Black and blonde have always been the hottest combination when it comes to hen parties. Blonde girls look best in black and who does not want to look best in one such hen nights. The theme is an evergreen one and is the most sought after hen party themes in London.




The naughty schoolgirl theme is the excuse to relive those carefree and chirpy days. It’s the best a bubbly and cheerful bride would want on her hen night. Girls in tight white satin blouse with miniskirts to emphasize their long slender legs are always a striking combination to showcase.




The fairytale theme hen parties contain all the essence of a fairy tale. There are women dressed in fairy costumes with butterfly wings and fairy crown on their head. It symbolizes the completion of the bride’s search for her prince charming who would treat her like his queen.




For all the ladies who like to dominate the men with their dominatrix attitude, a dominatrix-themed hen party is all they can expect. Women dressed to kill are the main attraction in these parties.




Hawaii is the place where every woman wants to spend her honeymoon. Why not gift her same in her hen party. Flowers, sundresses, bikini and all the Hawaiian Skirts make for a really horny hen night.




Women dressed in red with devil’s horn on their head surrounding the bride to be in Angel’s outfit makes for a great hen night. It is like the devils provoking the angel to get tempted and enjoy everything the night has to offer and the angel not yielding to the temptations.




Naughty secretary who is always ready to have some fun is one of the most loved themes for young adults’ hen parties. Women dressed in sexy secretary outfit dancing on the floor with the bride make a great hen night.




Rainbow hen party theme is for those girls who are all colourful and have a group which is too vibrant and diverse. Pretty girls dressed in rainbow colours surrounding the bride make the whole atmosphere colourful and celebratory.

How to organize a Hen party at home

10 + 1 unique ideas for your hen night in

Hen party at home can be just as much, if not more, fun than a night out in city, crawling from pub to pub or clubbing all night long. There are loads of ideas to consider and with a bit of thinking outside the box, you can have a very fun and memorable time, not to mention your wallet might thank you!

Here are some ideas I hope you will find useful when thinking about having a hen party at home:

1. Decorations


Be creative! Go to 2 euro shop and buy a bag of balloons. Invest some money for a marker and print some invitations with the name of the bride.
It’s plenty of free templates out there to customize your pictures and invitations.

Or , you can just use some Word templates to send some invitations or moke press released:





You can Customize your t-shirt  shopping online or  just wear masks, to add a bit of mysterious!
The key point is customization!


2. Party food

party food

No, you don’t need to be a master chef! Just be creative and work with the presentation of the food.

For eg. Buy bread sticks and roll some ham around, or prepare some fruit skewers or ‘caprese’.
In other words, all you need: toothpick, cherry tomatoes, cherry mozzarella, olives. Pay attention to the colors.

Here you find some of my favorite party food recipes.
The idea is to share the skills, so if somebody is good in baking, another can just show how to make a good sandwich or improvise some tapas! It’s faster and simpler than what you think!


3. Cooking party: the naked chef


Here is my naughty and refined version of the previous point.
If you want to experience a taste of Italy and you are from Dublin, the naked chef is what you want to book.
You kill two birds with one stone: the bride will gain some culinaries skills before her wedding, and you will find something hot and spicy in the kitchen 🙂


4. Games

dare to do

It’s plenty of games you can play with your friends to celebrate your hen party, or why not, even an important birthday party.

Here you can find a list of funny and naughty games you can organize at the comfort of your place.
From MR and MRS quiz, to ‘Pin the hunk’. Don’t forget to involve the groom before the party, and bring along with you a smartphone.

With this app: https://himandhervideos.com/ the bride and groom record their answers by webcam (or smartphone), then you get a DVD and video link to play on the night.


4. Flowers


Don’t take for granted the effect of decorate the house with beautiful flowers.
If you are from Dublin go to Grafton street,  and grab a bunch of roses for only 5 euro.


5. Make up Masterclass

make up tutorial

Again, if there is an expert in the group, she can deliver a tutorial and teach the perfect makeup. Grab a smartphone and shoot a video while she is improving the skin of the bride. Then you can share the ‘before/after’ among you on a private group on Youtube or Facebook

6. Pajama party


If you have only your granny gown in your wardrobe, just go to  Pennyes /Primark and with approx. 10 euro, you can be very funny, or very sexy, or the combination of the two.

7. Book a butler in the buff

butler in the buff

You want to avoid the tacky stripper but as well you don’t want to spend the night playing Cluedo?
Why don’t you book a topless waiter, and let you and bride  being spoiled by him?
A cheeky butler in the buff can refill the glasses, entertain the group, get involved in your party games.
You can ask him to replace the poster of the pin the hunk game, so you need to find the courage to stick the pin on his body.

8. Karaoke Night


We all like to sing, right! We sing in the car, having a shower, on the LUAS, but the singing with your friends, with some glasses of prosecco and the excitement of a hen party, is quite different. Karaoke is an outcome in bars, restaurants, hotels, so why not organizing a Karaoke night in your place

Just go on Youtube, connect a Hi-Fi and borrow a projector! A good tip is to advise the neighbors few hours in advance, and bring some cookies as apologies 🙂

9. Amarcord time



Before Social media.

Let’s be nostalgic and recall school time! Bring some old odd pictures of the bride-to-be: polaroid, school yearbooks,

photos of the first communion or that fun trip at the secondary school. Search for the embarrassing ones, that awkward ex-boyfriend.

Here you a cool and free template to create your digital multimedia yearbook.

10. Build a book
Similar to the previous game. But add some nice touch, writing genuine phrases that the bride will share with her kids. Buy a scrapbook with removable pages, and mail a page to all of the bachelorette’s girlfriends. Ask everyone to decorate one side with photos of herself and/or the bride, funny quotes and memories, a letter, mementos of their friendship, etc. On the other side, have them write out their favorite recipe. Wrap it up and give it to her during the party.

Polaroid could be a great idea!

+1. Survival Kit

how to organize the perfect hen party

10 Tips to plan the perfect hen party

So you’ve got the Maid of Honour gig, your head is spinning with thoughts of dresses, shoes, hairstyles then someone mentions the Hen Party. Yikes, you have never organized anything in your life, except maybe a dinner party and even then you managed to get the numbers wrong! Breath, I am here to tell you it is totally doable. The following are my ten tips for throwing the perfect hen party, that the bride will treasure memories of for years to come.

This is very important in deciding  what type of hen party you are going to have. Maybe get the other bridesmaids and the bride around to your place for a few nibbles and wine, to trash around ideas. These days it’s not unheard of for to go abroad. Michelle Keegan had her hen party in Dubai, Kris Kardashian had hers in Las Vegas, obviously this is a more expensive option. Whatever the venue make sure you budget properly, and do not end up out of pocket. Always allow a little extra, which if left over you can buy a round of drinks with on the night.

Send out emails or cards in plenty of time. Most hen parties are four to six weeks before the wedding. Which gives the bride plenty of time to recover for the Big day. Invite the other hens to lease with you as much as possible. Taking any ideas on board for improving the event and making it more special for the bride.
Keep in mind who is attending, is the bride’s mother maybe grandmother? Just because you and your friends enjoy a few shots and then hitting the dance floor does not mean it’s for everyone!

girls hen do

The bride has chosen you for the job, you may know her a long time. Whatever happens Don’t embarrass her on the night. Thoughts of grinding well oiled men, L plates flapping may be on your ideal hen night list but may make her recoil in horror. This is the brides night let her enjoy it and have fun memories to think back on for years to come.

These days it is possible to book a hen party, to numerous different organized venues, from cooking to sculpting, art classes to a day on a farm the list is endless. These would definitely cut out a lot of work for you, as someone else is being paid to keep you entertained. It’s also someone to blame should there be any hiccups!

Booking the venue is obviously your job, try to book it in plenty of time. Should there be a hotel involved, pay the deposit, most hotels will allow you to pay the balance on the day. Ensure all goes smoothly by having the correct amount ready, ask about group rates, decorations, and menu options. Be prepared to haggle to get the best price, if it’s a pub ask them to reserve a space for you especially if it’s a weekend night.

It doesn’t matter how much the bride is involved in organizing the night have a few little surprises up your sleeve. These don’t have to cost anything, maybe framed photos of nights out, or from school days. Some small fun gifts.. Not too rude! Anything that will put a smile on her face.

It’s traditional to see the bride to be with a white vail, If this isn’t her style.. have some props ready so she will stand out, Angel wings, fun wigs, or any other fun costume ideas.

You will have included this in your costing, Insure to recheck the day before to see they are aware of booking, and collection times.

10. RELAX!
You have done your best, have fun!
