Wow! I haven’t posted a blog for three weeks. Time has flown by. I am continually thinking about my blog and what to write next. I still have a lot to write, plus I love writing so that is a bonus. I hope you think that is a bonus!
I made three dozen cupcakes for my friend on the weekend so have been thinking about cupcakes! I thought I would write about all the cupcakes I have made so far. Plus I thought this post would be shorter in words and have more pictures so you can zoom through! As I know we are all busy!
So here are the cupcakes I have made so far – well Part 1 of
May 2009 – Mother’s Day
Just an excuse to make some cupcakes and spoil my Mum!
July 2009 – Mother-in-law’s Birthday
Some cupcakes I made my mother-in-law. They are supposed to be the colour of the Western Australian football team the Fremantle Dockers. However mixing red and blue food colouring doesn’t make purple as easy as you think!
October 2009 – Halloween
I went to my first Halloween party in 2009! And I was lucky to be invited to two Halloween parties that year! The other one was held by a Canadian who missed Halloween the previous few years. I wish Australia celebrated Halloween more. If you want to read more about my Halloween love check out this blog post:
My sister holds the best Halloween parties! She made coffins and grave headstones and put them in the front garden. She also made a scary ‘basement’ and had a table with all sorts of ‘tools’ and body parts (sausages for intestines, slimy cherry tomatoes for eye balls, and a bowl full of crushed tomatos and what looks like spices of chicken…. ) and to top all that off, she filled the spare bath and put red food colouring in it and wrote ‘Bloody Mary’ on the mirror!
So something a little less scary, here are the cupcakes I made for my sister’s party!
We had a BBQ for some friends from Kalgoorlie (or had already left Kalgoorlie as well). The orange bars are supposed to be gold bars, and the block pots with gold coming out of them are supposed to be gold pours. Plus the cupcakes spell out Kalgoorlie!
January 2010 – Highschool Reunion
I lacked some creativity after Christmas so made some colourful cupcakes for some very good old friends… and my friend’s kids!
March 2011 – Visiting Cousin’s
We visited hubbie’s cousins, who are from Brisbane, for dinner. So I made a Brisbane Lions and Gold Coast Suns cupcakes for our cousins and West Coast Eagles for hubbie and I. I made a generic football cupcake for their son and a princess cupcake for their daughter! The kids seemed to concentrate pretty hard on the cupcakes when eating them
Hopefully I’ll post some more of my blog soon!
