Cupcakes and guess work!

Evening everyone, today's post comes a little later than usual because i have been having a bit of a lazy day.
I have been waiting patiently for some scales to arrive in the post so i could have a go at making Cupcakes but they still haven't arrived.
Soooo i decided to just rough guess it, throw it all in and keep my fingers crossed and luckily for me the cakes came out OK ha.
I just want to say thank you to the lovely Milly at pearls and poodles for the inspiration to give baking a try again. Her cupcakes are amazing and looking at her pictures on her blog makes me want to get my mixing spoon out instantly.

So here's what we made: Cupcake Xmas trees:

 I was waiting for silver balls and dark green colouring but my order hasn't arrived so edible glitter and sparkles was put to good use. I don't think it looks bad for a first attempt . Besides they wont last very long in our house anyway.

 The kids loved it and we had a really good time eating a few of our creations afterwards as well.

Of course i had to let the kids do some on there own too and here's what they came up with:

Anyway, i have got lots of pretty girly pink toppings for my next attempt so i think i will make some for new year and hopefully they will look a bit better than these ones.
Hope you are all having a great evening xxx
