Mmmmm cake....

I am really enjoying the time, now my youngest is at school. making cakes each week. Last week i made vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting and carrot cupcakes with orange buttercream.









 I can't think of a nicer place to store my buttercream icing:




 Not that all these cupcakes are really going to help me lose the stone i put on when i broke my foot!
So i have been making sure that i either make them with eggs for the boys (I don't eat egg). Or make them with egg replacer and give some to family, friends and school teachers so i don't stuff my face. The carrot cake cupcakes went down really really well, i will be making those again and i always use the basic vanilla cupcake recipe.

I saved myself one to have this morning. Do you like the lovely plate? My mum used to have plates over the wall. And then sold most of them in the  ' chuck out your chintz 90's'. I am so pleased i kept a few as i always use them now. This one was bought because it shares my name.
