I have a couple of photos to show you of the cupcakes that I made for Christmas:
These were chocolate peppermint and I made the stars for the top of the tree out of fondant the day before, the funny thing was that on Christmas morning when I opened the lid of the cupcake holder all the stars had softened and gone limp! So Christmas morning I was making them again - argh lesson learnt!
I also made some yummy's for some friends that came down from Christchurch and stayed in Timaru over the break here is what I took them:
From top left we have boysenberry cupcakes with a boysenberry surprise in the centre and a butter cream with boysenberry fruit pulp in it and a fresh organic boysenberry out of mums garden, then we have carrot cupcakes with cream cheese icing, chocolate peppermint Christmas tree cupcakes with gnache, old fashioned cheesecakes(these are made with pastry and a cake top with raspberry jam surprise in the centre, Belgium biscuits (my fav!), cranberry and white chocolate biscuits and last but not least shortbread! I had spent most of the day in the kitchen but it was worth it, and the LOVED all the home baking :-)
I have also been busy today in the kitchen, Abby and Jamie have wanted for AGES to make Nija Bread men, so here is Abby, she made the "Belgium biscuit mix" (cause we don't actually like ginger bread) :
Also I have been making a few cards here is the one that I made (and have not finished the inside) of the whiff of joy wedding couple that I got the idea of Debby from A scrapjourney, thanks for the inspiration for this one - every time I think of the time it takes to cut all the pieces of these my thumb hurts lol
Right that's it from me, hope you are all having a great weekend.
Thanks so much for stopping bye
