I seem to have been getting a lot more traffic to my blog lately! Majority of this seems to be cake and baking related so I thought it would be a good time to look back at past cupcakes which never made it to the blog as I was not blogging then! I do miss baking for cupcake sales!
Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes:
I loved making these, easy to make and they were so popular!
Marble Iced Cupcakes:
Such an easy technique and the one I normally use for flowers. This example are very girly butterfly cupcakes and a mix of both vanilla and chocolate icing
I found that it was relatively easy to make kids cupcakes for girls but it was sightly more difficult to design cupcakes for boys. But different choices of colours and accessories can easily make a normal cupcake perfect for a little Prince, Princess or Pirate!
Fancy Fondant Flowers:
I haven’t done much fondant work, prefer piping and icing, fondant makes me angry! But these were not too dreadful for a first attempt!
Never underestimate the power of a giant chocolate button decoration!
Hello and Welcome to my little corner of the Internet.
My Name is Sam and I am 24 Years Young. I have recently moved to Fleet in Hampshire. The original purpose of this blog was to track the process of buying my first home, however this seems to have happened a lot quicker than planned! As a result you may be subjected to a collection of house related talk, my first attempts at DIY and day-to-day ramblings of my life.
I also bake cakes, normally celebration cakes for friend and family but also cupcakes and biscuits. I am currently also learning to cook. So as a result the occasional cake or cooking attempt will make its appearance on this blog. If a cake appears on this blog you will know that I have inevitably spent hours in my kitchen and potentially shred the occasional tear while surrounded by icing sugar and flour so approach with caution!
I’m an avid supporter of BBC Children In Need and fundraise for them all year round. My friend Jenna and I are currently taking part in a year long challenge for Children in Need. You can visit our site for this by clicking here or we can be found at http://www.CINChallenge.com. We also have a Blog, Youtube channel and Just Giving page which can all be accessed from that website.
My friend tells me that I should blog about my life as apparently I am sitcom worthy and will make her millions. We shall see!
If you have stumbled across my blog by chance then hello and thank you very much for reading! I hope I have had something interesting to say! If you know me and are reading because you are interested in my ramblings then I am honoured to have your eyes grace the presence of my blog also. If you know me and I have forced you to read then that is just what supportive friends do! Unless you are my Dad. If you are Dad I have probably directed you here to persuade you into a new DIY project or I’ve found something for the flat. It will be worth your time. Honest!
