A couple of weeks ago I made some cakes to take down to the Leeds office when I went for the day. Given it was December I decided that I should make something Christmassy. I hadn’t been food shopping so I was limited with what flavour I could make so just went with vanilla. The decoration was an easy choice – I made these cakes last year and really wanted to put them on the blog but never got round to taking photos. Click here to keep reading.

P1230149For the last two weeks I’ve been lacking sleep. Partly because of the Olympics (why do most of the finals have to be in the middle of the night?!) and partly due to being at a hen do last weekend for one of my friends, Sian. These Olympic themed cupcakes were for Sian’s hen do. We had a mini Olympics during the day on Saturday so I decided that some themed cupcakes would help re-fuel the athletes!

Over the last few months, lots of my friends have had babies. Having just had a baby myself 4 months ago, I know how crazy the first few days and weeks can be. I love making presents for people and a box of cupcakes seemed perfect for any new parents – especially useful to have something to offer any visitors or for those days when things are so chaotic that all you manage to eat is a cupcake for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Click here to see how these cakes are made.

Last weekend we had a Reunion/ Christmas get together with our NCT friends, which we offered to host. Baking with a 7 week old baby is challenging, but I was desperate to bake something Christmassy and fun!   I chose a design that could be done in stages so I could fit it in around looking after little Emily.

Last year before Christmas I made some cute little penguins to go on top of cupcakes. They were pretty quick to make so given I only had an hour left before I wanted to go to bed last night, and I had 11 undecorated cupcakes, I decided to try making some robins in the same way! Click here to see how to make them.

I went through a phase a couple of years ago of making minion cakes. Since then the minion baking has been limited but I’ve been wanting to make some cupcakes like these for a while. So for Tom’s hockey match a month ago I made a batch of yellow minions with 2 evil purple minions. It was a bit of a rush so I shoved them in the box without managing to get any good photos. I really wanted to share them on the blog so I decided to make them again! Me want banana!->
