You can never have too much icing!


I am a very lucky lady indeed! My beautiful Sister and her lovely Husband came to visit us in the Shire for the weekend. It was my sister's birthday on Friday and she bought her own cakes with her! Before you think I was being stingy, I should explain that they own and run their own cupcake company, Cupcakes and Peonies and therefore are much better at baking then I will ever be!
So we put the balloons and banners up, poured the Pimms and chilled the Champagne and had ourselves a little party. I had requested extra frosting on my cupcakes and managed to eat two before giving in and saving my other one for the next day! It is very useful though having a master cupcake maker as a sister, although we can often be found searching the Internet for new sparkly sprinkles rather than doing any real work!!

I can feel my teeth itching just looking at those cakes, and what a delight that is!!
Even though I love to cook I honestly believe that if someone can cook something better than you, then let them, just dig in and eat!
What a lucky lady you are to have a sister who makes such wonderful cup cakes. Yum!

Oh the cupcakes do look delightful, sadly icing sets my teeth on edge (like nails on a blackboard) as do ice lollies - I had quite a tragic childhood in that respect! Explains why I didnt have a wedding cake too hahahaha! They do look delightful though!

Simon- I can imagine that it was quite a tragic childhood in that respect! The icing is my favourite part- I'm not too fussed about the cake! Good job that I have a very lovely and understanding dentist!
