This is not just food...

Hi everyone!

After a weekend enjoying the sun I thought it was time for me to share a few more photos with you ...
You see, during my few months of "no blogging", I fell in love with cupcakes...
I had tryed a few before from various shops / bakery/ Supermarkets and never understood what all the fuss around those little cakes was about.
That is until the day I had, for some unknown reasons, the biggest craving ever for some.
So I went to town with Cally (my very patient collie) and we came back with our arms (paws) full of baking goodies incuding the book of Primrose Bakery.
I made a bunch of vanilla cupcakes and it was like seeing the light for the first time!
Now, I am in the "secret" of what cupcakes are all about!They are sooooo yummy!
So since that day mid feb, I have made a batch every weekend (or most of them)...
I went through quite a few flavors such as chocolate, peanut butter, lemon, ginger, lime, coconut, raspberry and much more...

After a while trying different recipies I came up with my own mixes and decorations.
I made some lemon cupcakes yesterday (I know, baking in the heat might not have been my brightest moment, but hey, when it's love...) with a nice lemon curd filling and here are some photos:



I am awaiting an order of very originals cupcake cases from Malaysia and I will show you what I come up with as soon as I get them! Can't wait hi hi!!!


Along the same line, when I went to France for some hollidays last easter I found out that a shop entirely dedicated to French macarons had open it's doors in my hometown...
Oh my god!!! What a sight!
I HAD to by some (for photography purposes of course lol) as they looked soooo cute and here are the few photos that I had the time to take before they disapeared (wonder where they went...)...





During my time abroad I had time to catch up with familly and here is a couple of photos...



Right, so here it is with the pics and the blabbing.
I hope that I'll be inspired soon to seat at my desk so I can show you a bit of crafting...
Thanks for all your lovely messages as ever!
