Coconut & White Chocolate Cupcakes

I made these white chocolate and coconut cupcakes the other day as part of my continuing recipe experimentation. I didn't think they would be but these cakes are really sickly...maybe I put too much chocolate in them! The recipe makes 12 cupcakes.


Skin Art: Birds and Clouds

Noticing that I had some Skin Art nail stickers left over, I thought I'd create this look. They make for a fab nail accessory and they actually lasted a lot longer than I expected.


Lemon & Raspberry Cupcakes

Ever since I was little it's been a family tradition to go strawberry and raspberry picking. Each summer, as soon as the strawberries come into season, my nan and I take a trip to a local 'pick your own' farm and fill countless punnets with fresh strawberries and raspberries.


Champagne Afternoon Tea: Stoke Place

One of my 19th birthday presents this year was a voucher for champagne afternoon tea at Stoke Place (Bucks) from my nan. The country house has beautiful grounds, so I waited until this summer to use the voucher in hope of sunshine and a lovely post-tea walk.


Marshmallow Cupcakes

Cakes make great presents to give; whether it's saying thank-you or for someone's birthday they always go appreciated. They're a bit different from the generic bar of chocolate, can be personalised and are fun to make. These gooey marshmallow cakes make the perfect little extra gift to give someone, and as the recipe makes 12 there's enough to keep some back for yourself...
