sprinkles on the top?

Today, I needed to take some photographs of my new cupcake plates, so obviously I needed some cupcakes to put in them.

I spent the afternoon making delicious chocolate cupcakes from a simple recipe found in my local weekend newspaper.

The recipe required two eggs and that was all I had left after my boys had earlier made their egg sculptures of different historical figures for school tomorrow. Biggest d_p made a model of Houdini and littlest d_P made a model of Macbeth. I am hoping that neither of their egg models befalls a nasty accident like poor old Humpty as we've no eggs left to make replacements!

The ultimate in decadence - individual cupcake plates!

To be listed on my Folksy site later tonight.

The icing was a little runny but they managed to get through the photoshoot OK until my two hungry little monsters snaffled the lot!

I think there may be one left for my supper *lick lips* yum!

Owls on Folksy

Following on from my owl giveaway last week, I thought that I would present you with some of my favourite owl items on Folksy.

I love this it reminds me of Plop - the owl who was afraid of the dark!

I also love this teacosy by Jacksknits

This owl pendant is beautiful - I love the contrasting patterns. This is from Tula Moon

I love this little rubber stamp by Skull and Cross Buns
