Cupcakes Galore!

Hi Friends

Still no new crafting managed, but I have been having a lovely time with my sister Jo! We took a drive into the New Forest yesterday hoping to see some baby animals on the way to the tea rooms for lunch. I'm not sure where they were all hiding as all we saw were some lovely shaggy brown cows and calves when normally you see loads! When we got to the tearooms we were delighted to see a Mummy donkey and her gorgeous baby. After a delicious lunch we weren't disappointed when we saw loads of babies on our way home.

Today after walking the dogs, we headed into Ringwood and had a little mooch around before again being "ladies who lunch"!!! When we arrived home, we just couldn't resist any longer, and just had to try one of the recipes from my new Cupcake book! This was very much a joint effort - I made the cake and Jo made the icing.

OMG!!! I can't tell you how absolutely, and completely delicious these cakes are! This recipe is definitely a keeper! If all the recipes in such a lovely book are all as good it's not good news for my figure!!!

These tags that I made last week seem appropriate for this post - one I made for Gill to save her the calories of a real one (or two!) and the other one just because! I was aiming for a garden tea party feel what with the bunting and cupcakes ...

Happy Bank Holiday!
