On a happier note...
|Blue minty swirl; ponds and lakes
...I won a cupcake competition!
|Apple and blackberry; trees and plants
The theme was 20 Years of Rosliston Forestry Centre, in half a dozen cupcakes.
|Vanilla supreme; Happy birthday!
I had fun creating six different flavours, based on a Madeira sponge recipe...
|Caramel chocolate bar; outdoor activities
...and moulding sugarpaste decorations for the top of each one.
|Hazelnut and honey; wildlife
Once I managed to turn up on the correct day (I don't know why I had Saturday fixed in my head instead of Sunday)...
|Choc chip and cherry; children's fun
...I got them safely delivered to the competition.
|All together now...
And the judges were impressed!
