C is for ........Cupcakes

As promised, I am posting a photo of Little Bird's cupcake making efforts, following her attendance at a cupcake decorating workshop at Center Parks a couple of weeks ago.  She wanted to practice her new found skills when she got back home and once I had bought some of the ingredients she needed, she had a go all by herself.

It was a bit fiddly for her, as you will see from the photographs, so it took her a couple of hours to make them.  I think she did a good job.  What do you think?

These were a daisy design, one of  3 or 4 designs she was taught in the workshop.  When you look a bit closer you can see that they were made by cutting small marshmallows in half to make the petals.  Very effective.

 She now wants an all singing, all dancing food mixer to aide her in her baking efforts.  We've compromised and I may be getting her a hand held one to use for the time being, as I don't have the worktop space or the money to spend on one of the big expensive ones.  It's great to see her getting enthusiastic about baking though, which is more than I can say for myself. (I just like the eating!)

I'll post again when she makes some different designs.

    1. Hi, Penny. I'll pass on your comment. It's just a new background I've never seen before on Blogger. It needed brightening up a bit.

  2. I think they would have taken me a couple of days! Well done Little Bird.
    Love from Mum
