The weekend has been and gone

and it went by so quickly. I went back to the dentist and I am still going to be taking antibiotics for a few more days, just to be on the safe side. I am so happy that I am getting back to normal, normal for me that is.

Friday I actually managed to do a little baking. Now those that have tried my cakes in the past have been very nice about them, although I know I am not the best at baking. But wow, I am so proud of the cupcakes I made. It was the first time I did any icing and I know I need practice. Paula set me off with making cupcakes as she took some fab ones into Derby Dabblers, with edible glitter on them.

Once I had made them I decorated them with the frosting and of course, I had to put glitter over them. I thought they looked really girly cakes.

I managed to use the cake stand I purchased a few weeks ago and they did look nice. I was a bit puzzled about the cake stand though as it has 13 mini stands for the cakes. 13? Isnt that a bit of a strange number.

Friday 8 of them got eaten as some friends came to visit me Friday night. This afternoon I had another one with my bezzy mate and then this evening my sister and brother in law came to visit and ate the last 2. Bro in law was so impressed that he has asked me to make him 6 but that was before he realised that his face shone with all the glitter. He did look cute LOL

Here is a picture of them on the stand.

This picture shows them a bit closer, as I said I know
I need to practise with decoration.

Here is a very close up of them, can you see the glitter

The only downside to it all was the kitchen, I got so engrossed I didnt realise what a mess I had gotton into, oh well it was all worth it.

Next baking day will be this weekend as I would like to make some more for my table at a show I am attending on Sunday, but more information about that tomorrow.

Thanks for having a read and cant wait to read your comments about the cakes.
