Hi Lucy
Wow... may I ask where did you get the fresh figs? I assume the mini fruit on top of the muffin is the fresh fig.

Hi chawanmushi,

Yes, the wedge mini fruit on top of the muffins are fresh figs. I bought them from fremantle market - 5 for A$4-00. Surprisingly, they are very sweet.

Oh I love tim tams! I always buy many packs of them if they are on offer when I go Australia. I would love to eat one of those muffins. They look awesome.
