Toot toot!

Oooh, I have good news to share...I've been published in the Creative Cardmaking Special Edition!

I have two articles inside - cards and tags using Kirsty Wiseman's Happy Poppy and Old Navy collections (which come free with the magazine). I'm really pleased with how they all look and am looking forward to seeing my next lot of work in the next issue of the regular Creative Cardmaking magazine!

Today, I've been making more cupcakes, these lot will go into work tomorrow...

I used the Chocolate on Chocolate cupcake recipe from "Baking Magic" and adorned them with Maltesars, brownies, Minstrels, mini marshmallows and Milky Way stars, then topped off with a swirl of caramel (inspiration from the White Trash cupcakes in "Who you callin' cupcake?"). They're lovely, though slightly sickly, I think this is mainly due to the ganache on top. Next time I'd replace the ganache with a thicker icing which doesn't use as much dark chocolate.


  1. Well done indeed getting published in the mag. I shall look out for that. These cupcakes look yummy.


  2. Published - you should be - well done! And the cakes..oh my.

  3. OMG I think i just ascended into chocolate heaven, they look amazing!

    Well done on getting published.

    Thankyou for your kind offer, please don't send anything heavy, I don't want to cost you a lot of money. If you find any jeans and would like to send them strip off all the seams,waistband,zip etc to cut down the weight.

    Thanks again x

  4. Oh! Yummy, Yummy. Just spotted these, bet I'm to late now. Will watch for more.
