Things I like to bake!

I first got into making cupcakes last year when I was raising money for my London Marathon campaign. I made a few batches on a whim, and took them into my office to sell. I also sold some at local Farmer's Markets, and to my pure delight, they went down a storm! :)

I soon discovered an unleashed passion within and since then, I have been baking and creating. I have been lucky enough to cater for some birthday parties and other functions, but regardless of whether I'm being commisioned or not, I just love them!
So I thought I'd share some of my cupcake delights for you all to drool over :) tee hee!
If anyone wants any tips for creating something similar, please feel free to comment/email me! I really will never get bored of cupcake chatter.

Let me know if you share my love of cute cupcakes...??

Milly said...

Aw, thanks girlies for all your lovely comments!I'm pleased to see I am not alone in my adoration for cupcake lovliness! :)
people asking about the icing/frosting. It's very schimples. Just get a good quality butter, make sure it is nice and soft then combined with double the weight of icing sugar.
So, for example, 8oz butter and 16oz of icing sugar makes enough buttercream to ice 12-14 cupcakes!
Have fun and post back any of your efforts. I'd love to see your darling creations :)
