I have a fixation on cupcake icing, I don't eat alot of it and I sure like making it. I would much rather eat the cupcake without icing or a small amount. So because I had left over icing I made some for a friend's afternoon tea.
Here they are......
I made a chocolate cupcake and a raspberry icing.
I found an old macchiato cup that a friend brought me years ago, I have always loved them.
Here it is, long over due and half finished. I had some great ideas from Mishi Yarns about the top stitching, I used a silk embroidery thread and weaved it in and out of my top stitch. I love it and think it looks good.
I used a striped cotton fabric for the lining, which gives it a pop of colour.
It is covered it cat fur too. I just have the inside lining and buttons to go and I will have a great coat for winter.
It is here! Not the end of the world but my camera, I knew which one to get so the choice was easy the 4 hour wait for the battery charge was put off by, you guessed it! Cupcake making because they are good still subjects to shoot, as well as the cat.
Butter cake with a raspberry butter cream. I took these down to the ladies at the local hospice shop for afternoon tea.
I had to adjust the size of photos as my new camera has mega pixels to work with and my work computer doesn't like it. Anyway happy days keep watching as I am going to put up photos of the work I have been doing over the last 2 weeks.
I am busy sewing my winter coat, I thought the cat has one why not me. In reality thou I have been promising myself to sew a wool coat the way a want it. I still have no camera so imagine for a few seconds Black (felted) wool that is medium thickness and a green and white stripe cotton lining and some green top stitching, I have put on a back yoke, and just one front yoke for something different.
Now for my picture of the day, it is a sweet little dress I made for my niece for her 3rd birthday.
The embroidery was a little hard to sew thru so it took awhile to sew the arms and neck by hand, the end result was worth it.
Homemade Biscuits are big with the man in my house, I really have to be in the mood to make them too. I think it is quicker to make cupcakes. Anyway another blast from the past these little babies are the first royal icing biscuits I made.
Sorry everyone, I thought I posted this two days ago.
I have been baking cupcakes today (two days ago), I also knitted another Koolhaas hat for my cousin and I have started a stole. It is boring black but need a colour that went with my work clothes. Oh and the biggest news Dollie has shoes.
But on to Cupcakes.
These are Chocolate velvet fudge cupcakes, With a fondant shape which I added royal icing and a chocolate butter icing.
I did try and write farewell on them, but I didn't like the look.
I was really happy how they turned out.
Now for a little bad news, I dropped my camera on a concrete floor and now it doesn't worked. I had organised my boss to get my new camera from the states in June so I was gutted that I dropped my old point and shoot I took it everywhere with me. I now have to wait until sometime in June before I can take photos for you all. (or I may go to my mum's and get hers)
