A few weeks ago I kindly offered to make cupcakes for my nieces 7th birthday this last weekend (my sister is without a kitchen at the moment due to renovations) thnking that would be an easy task, i was thinking along the lines of packet mix?? ummm not, my friend Sandra said I should make them from scratch, they were'nt hard, (at this point you're probably thinking what's the big deal, well, I don't do cakes/sweets very well at all, I love to cook food, not sweet) anyway..... She gave me her cupcake book, gave me some pointers,
and the results....
Chocolate cupcakes with purple butter cream icing and pretty sprinkles.
Far from perfect, but they tasted yumm. I was quite chuffed!!

Rain and Hail, very very wintery today, but in amongst all that were bursts of sunshine, and a few rainbows. I missed most of them because I was at work and inside, but luckily for me I got the last one for the day when I pulled up outside home at the end of the day. I have a bit of a reputation with the family as been a 'rainbow chaser'. What is it about rainbows that just grab a hold of me???
