This Week – cupcake decorating class

On Monday night, I organised a cupcake decorating class with some of my friends. I randomly went to one last year and enjoyed it so much, I asked the tutor to come and do a class for my friends and I. It was so much fun! We learnt some piping techniques, we learnt how to make fondant roses, we played with edible glitter, and, at the end of it all, we had 4 little cakes to take home with us! Yum!

I know they’re not perfect (especially as I ran out of time for the one on the top left) but it was such a giggle to do something new and different. So if you’re looking for an out-of-the-ordinary social activity, I can highly recommend doing cupcake decorating!


This is a linky with a difference so please check out the rules below. Somehow we’ve had an odd number of link-ups for the last few weeks, which shouldn’t really happen if everyone is following the rules. Feel free to tweet me if you have any questions 🙂 You can also check out this post for general info about linky parties.

Wendy’s #BlogCrush is A Rather Rude Awakening by Rhyming With Wine

Lucy’s #BlogCrush is 5 Reasons It Absolutely Sucked Being Hacked by My Rambling Thoughts

Eeek: hacked! The word that strikes fear into every bloggers heart! This raw and honest post is so encouraging, though. Yes it was a horrible thing to happen, but Selena has been able to take away some real positives from the experience, and has some great tips if this disaster should ever fall upon you…

Please collect your “I’ve been featured” badges, above 🙂

I’m linking up “When selfless love becomes self abuse“. I’ll admit it – this was a tough one to write. As a mum, my wants and needs are often pretty low on the priority list… and after years of putting everyone else first, I’ve lost my way a bit.
