Eat me cakes, trial one

Middle sis makes the most delicious vanilla sponge and regularly brings Mike and I cupcakey treats - I'm going to have to go a bit easy on the cupcakes if I want to look presentable in a wedding dress though. Flabby cupcake induced bingo wings are not a good bridal look! This weekends batch were a trial of the cupcakes for the cupcakes and candy evening buffet we're toying with. (Mike and I are both sweety addicts, so it seemed like a great idea!) Don't they look fab!?

These aren't the colours we will be using (as they were samples she just used what she had in her cupboards) and the writing needs some work (I know nothing about cake making, but i'm told she used a rudimentary writing pen from Sainsburys where usually she would use something more sophisticated from the specialist shop she usually frequents) but I thought they were gorgeous, and absolutely perfect for the theme too! It's so exciting to see something that we might actually use on the big day so quickly - I can hardly believe i'm already planning a wedding and everything feels like such a whirl, but I'm so excited. I'm sure i'm going to drive everyone I know crazy, but it's all I can think about at the minute.

As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating and given that Mike has eaten all but two of the cakes shown above (and is now lying on the living room carpet with a greed-induced tummy ache) these are going to be a roaring success!

Love, Tor xx
