Pastel Cookies

Last weekend I made a quick batch of cookies to test out my new ovens to make sure they bake evenly. Here's a sample of some of the cookies - they are just plain sugar cookies decorated with royal icing in pastel colours.

And here they are all together ready to take into work for my colleagues.......

Stay tuned for more baking ventures soon!

Vintage Cupcake

I've recently come across Polyvore which enables you to import images from websites and create your own image. Here's my first attempt at using the software to create a vintage themed picture full of lots of gorgeous cakes.

Back in the kitchen!

Hi everyone - apologies for being offline for so long. I have been enduring renovations to my home for the last 2.5 months and only recently have gotten access to a kitchen again after 5 weeks! I've been having major baking withdrawals so as soon as my ovens (yes I have 2 ovens now!!) were connected up I had to test them out. Here are some little girly cupcakes I made.....

The icing was piped using a PME 57 nozzle to make individual petals. I used 2-tone icing and added lilac glitter and little pearl draguees on the top to make them extra cute!

Happy Baking xx
