Friday ramblings

Here are the "boy" cupcakes I baked for that order last weekend. The colours have come out strangely in the pics. They're actually aquamarine, royal blue and lime green in colour, despite the fact that some of them look purple here.







How cute are the little cricket bat and ball decorations? Gotta love Kadies!






My piping bag broke in the middle of icing this lot. It was 10.30pm on a Friday night and the cupcakes were being picked up the next morning, so a plan had to be made. I took a little plastic sandwich bag, cut a hole in the corner, stuck my piping nozzle in the bag and finished the job just fine.

I would love a snazzy, proper piping set though. But I can't justify the expense (they range from R160 to R450 for the good sets) right now. I have other things to pay for, like putting new heels on my overworked winter work shoes before the cold weather arrives.

What's everyone up to this weekend? I'll be doing a big writing assignment, watching STOMP! (can't wait, even though I saw it a few years ago - best show ever), switching off lights for Earth Hour and watching the Australian F1 Grand Prix . Bring it on!


Have a good one.

Those cupcakes look divine.

I don't have a fancy icing set - i just bought a proper icing bag and have a whack of different nozzzles that i've bought fairly cheaply along the way.

i hate using a sandwich bag, just doesn't work for me.

Happy weekend.

The cupcakes look great. Something to fall back on when the writing does not bring in the cash fast enough? LOL.

Have a great weekend.

They look great! I'm probably going to try and catch up with some work, change some nappies and do some laundry.

Day two weaning myself off of my cupcake addiction, and I had to come here? Those do look divine!

I've been out of blogging touch, but happy to be back to see these. There is something soul satisfying with biting into something tempting and beautiful.

Gee thanks for making me realise how waaaaaaaaaaaaaay inadequate my baking skills are next to yours! These are amazing, far too good to eat, if I had made these, I'd have to kill anyone who dared to scoff one!
