Long Weekend :-)

South Canterbury Anniversary weekend - YAY and to be honest it couldn't have come at a better time - I am ready for a break.

Yesterday Jo and I did an at home class that we brought from the UK from a place called The creative Cake Academy, it was a cupcake course.  We decided to throw the instructions away and just go off the picture and we had to make some adjustments as we didn't have all the cutters that we needed!
So this is what we made:
and a couple of close ups but don't look to close lol

So these little beauties took us 5 hours to make all the flowers are hand made and its hard to see but we even used the cuttlebug embossing folders to emboss some of the icing.  Now the thing is that these need to be eaten now - they recommend you eat them 12 to 24 hours after making them.  So feel free to come visit for a cuppa!

Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for popping by!
