I was flicking through a recipe book for picky eaters and came across a recipe so awesome it had to be tried!
Behold the magnificent results below!




Christmas Cards!

Christmas is starting rather early with me this year! 🙂
Along with some usual shop bought cards I decided to make a few myself!


I purchased some card blanks and pondered what to do!
Then I was perusing eBay and found these beautiful gingerbread man wooden shapes and an idea came to me!
How about a card that’s also a cute little gift! 🙂
The gingerbread man is lightly tacked to the card with repositionable glue dots and he has a very small jingle bell tied around his neck with a piece of organza ribbon!
I then printed a holiday message with a cute vintage looking letter set I purchased recently!
The result is a cute card with a little Christmas ornament that will last longer than one Christmas! 🙂


Birthday treats!

My latest project was my boyfriends birthday!
I decided to wrap his gifts with brown parcel paper, then tied a bright ribbon around them and used a matching tag!
It’s an effective and attractive way to wrap gift! It’s also good on a budget because the brown paper costs peanuts!

I’ve never baked anyone a birthday cake before so I seized my opportunity and set sail into the realms of cake, icing, cutters and so forth!
I found the recipe for this flour less cake in a book on retro cooking!
It uses almonds and chocolate as the main body!
Whisked egg whites gives the cake it’s lift!
The end result is rather brownie-ish and fudgy! 🙂
I decided to cover the cake in oozy chocolate icing and then decorated with fresh fruit and chocolate covered hazelnuts!

I also discovered that for a reasonable price, Steamer Trading stock cake boards and a box all in one packet!
Very handy!
