Fun In The Kitchen

Posted by MANDI at 7:54 PM
Offspring #2 had a friend to play today and, as it's school holidays I thought we'd do something a bit special and fun. I'd promised her that when this particular friend came to play we could do some cooking and when I came across these gorgeous little cupcakes I knew we had to make them.

These were so easy but looked fantastic. I cheated and used a cake mix for the cupcake part - chocolate, of course. Then it was a simple matter of topping them with some green icing, rolling the edge in a little tinted coconut, popping in a lollypop 'flower' and using a halved spearmint leaf lolly as the leaves.

The girls had so much fun decorating them and were, justifiably, well pleased with their efforts.

Do these look sweet! :-))
I remember Ingo once bought a biscuit-"role" in Carnarvon. A "Diet"-one and it was sooo sweet, my!
Guess Germans are more salty-like guys?
Gave you two awards, btw :-)
(they came in a package to me, too)

These look great. Went to a birthday party recently where they had something very similar.

On a completely different note, did you know they have started filming 'One for the Money' with Katherine Heigl as Stephanie Plum????

Thankyou so much Iris!
And thankyou to you Anonymous!!
Yeah, I saw that Donna. Not happy about that bit of casting - I guess it's yet another film, of a fave book, that I won't be seeing ;)
