Not a Christmas cake in sight.

30 Dec

I hope you all had a Very Merry Christmas. I had a lovely Christmas, a nice quiet family Christmas at home ( well as quiet as it can be with 1 teenager and 2 very excited children). Not sure who was more excited, the children or me!  Anyway this year i didn’t make any Christmas cakes, partly down to forgetting to bake any and also due to the fact that i never seemed to find any spare time to make them. So this year was a Cupcake Christmas, i also made cupcakes for my friend who was having a Cupcake Christmas this year too.

Stockings, snowmen and santa bellies

These cupcakes spell out the word Christmas.

All topped with tiny edible gold stars.

Little fondant/sugarpaste snowmen.

Christmas gifts.

Sparkly Snowflake cupcakes.

Gingerbread.

Christmas trees.

All boxed up.

Christmas cupcakes

17 Dec

Every year my children love to take cupcakes into school for all of their friends. These are this years cupcakes.

All of the cupcakes were topped with edible glitters and really gave off a lovely sparkle.

This year i also made some cupcakes just for all of the teachers and staff at my children’s school. These were put in the staff room for everyone to enjoy.

School Christmas fair cupcakes

8 Dec

I made these cupcakes for my children’s schools annual Christmas fair. I was a little bit gutted that i couldn’t attend as my youngest little boy has been ill this week and has been absent from school. Oh well there is always next year. Half of the cupcakes i decorated to look like Christmas trees and the other half were snowmen faces, some with blue hats and some with pink. I am feeling quite festive now.

Halo themed Cupcakes

7 Dec

Hello six, do you like cupcakes??

Whether you are a Spartan or an Elite, like playing your way through campaign or shooting your way through multi-player online matchmaking. One thing is for sure, you are bound to like these Halo themed cupcakes. Halo is my one and only favourite game and when i am not baking and in the kitchen, you can be sure i will be fighting my way through the matchmaking games…..Living dead has to be my all time favourite. Although i also like to play Rumble pit, oddball, juggernaut, slayer, crazy king…love them all….bring it on!

I really enjoyed making these cupcakes, for obvious reasons. The cupcakes were Cherry and coconut with a vanilla buttercream and finished off with an edible Halo related topper. Here we have Spartans, Master Chief, Health packs (always come in handy), Happy Birthday halo logo, an Elite and our all time favourites, Grunts.

All boxed up and ready to go.

(speaking like a grunt)   A gift for you.

Keep up the good fight fellow Halo fans and i will see you in matchmaking.
