Cupcake-ing and a little bit of shopping


I have been extremely naughty (tut tut) and haven't blogged lately but I'm back. There has been a lot going on lately, the new 500 books arrived at school, I have been baking like crazy and I had my first stall all by myself!

But today I have been to a Halloween cupcake workshop in the crafty teacup cafĂ© ! I had a brilliant time learning how to decorate cupcakes with a spooky twist! The morning consisted of learning techniques and tricks to create wonderfully scary cakes.
Me and my cakes!

Busy making pumpkins!

I had a wonderful morning and came home with four decorated cupcakes we can have for tea. I learnt everything from making edible glue to stiffening fondant, and now I cant wait to make more!

Onto other things, I had my first stall on my own and I sold two penguin cushions!


The other day we went to Cribbs for a spot of shopping and visited the brand new Lakeland! I have just had a major wardrobe sort out and picked up some new clothes!!! (exited face) And we visited all the Christmas displays!!!! But at the end of the day we were dropping!
Soon I will post a tutorial on some new paper gift bags ready for the (dare I say it) festive season as it is only 58 sleeps to go till the big day!
Before I go I would just like to say I am on Instagram now where you can see my penguin fabric that I made the cushions out of!
Till next time. :)
