I hope so...

Oh dear I have neglected my poor little blog...

Anyway I’m here now!

Now I’m not fond of celebrating Halloween, it’s not my kinda thing but with all this cool spooky stuff around there has been lot’s of craft project available to me for FDC. So this afternoon the boys wanted to bake, and Mark had suggested I make Halloween cupcake for him to take to work on Friday. So we set to work making Vanilla cuppies with a swirl of blood (raspberry puree) and gray matter buttercream.

I don’t wanna toot my own horn but they rock! One of the best vanilla cuppies I have made, I have been experimenting with recipes to try and get the perfect vanilla and I *think* I’m pretty close. Spence was following me around saying CAKE! CAKE! CAKE!

Also in exciting news I am finally the proud owner of 2 cupcake couriers! I can now safely carry 72 cupcake without fear, it’s so frustrating working for hours to perfect your cupcakes only to have them destroyed in transport!!! I have one pink and one blue.

11 weeks till I hit Sydney and Planet Cake BABY!!

I shall be back probably on Tuesday as I am making Melbourne Cup Cuppies, will be working all weekend on my fondant decorations.

CYA then and happy caking!

Planet Cake! I am incredibly jealous! I would love to do one of their courses, but there is no way we could afford it.

Thanks Alicia I am very excited to be doing Cupcake Boot Camp at PC. I never ever thought I would have the opportunity to attend one of their courses, I am just very lucky to have someone who believes in me to offer their assistance :)
