It’s been a while…

Far too long since my last post…sorry about that. I have been pretty busy with various things which has kept me away from here but I will try harder!

In the meantime, hope you enjoy the picture of the birthday cupcakes seeing as it’s my birthday today and all that. Wish I was getting those cupcakes but I’ll be happy with any kind of cake really!

Lots of Love,

Have your cake…

It’s well into the new year now and everyone is probably feeling a bit meh now that there is no exciting Christmas things happening and the next holiday is a way off…this is also around the time that people are falling off of the diet wagon so I thought I’d just help you along with that by showing you…cake!

First we have strawberry chocolate cake…yum!

Looks yummy right!

Next we have…lemon layer cake!

I think that is an impressive-looking cake.

Next…carrot cake!

Carrot cake used to scare me…how can you make a cake with vegetables?? I am now a convert.

Last, because it’s so pretty, rainbow cupcake!

So, who’s hungry?

Wedding Bells

Hello you 🙂 So lovely to see you again.

I have some excellent news…my lovely sister, Miss S, has got engaged! So, in honour of her planning the wedding I thought I’d show you all some lovely wedding stuff that makes me smile.

This indian wedding cake is amazing!

I love this shot of the lace dress.

Dresses from 1861

Dont forget flowers! I like bright ones 🙂

Some great ideas for homemade wedding favours.

And of course, a gorgeous knitted shawl…I could make that, I’m sure.

Congratulations to you both!

Lots of Love,

Yay Cake!

Well, it’s a grey and rainy Saturday and we all need something to cheer us up I’m sure. So I found this picture of an amazing cake to do the job!

I really like those lop-sided cakes and this one has amazing colours!

Don’t forget to enter the Posh Yarn competition, if you havent done already. It finishes on the 30th June.

Tomorrow I shall be trying to remind you all that, yes, it is actually June and , yes, it should be summer!

Happy Saturday everyone!

Lots of Love,
