Learn Something New Every Day: 9th September

Once of my lessons for yesterday was that a little help goes a long way. However, I didn't have any pictures for that so the lesson I scrapped was that sometimes the simplest ideas are the best ones. Or perhaps that necessity is the mother of invention?

I made about sixty of these cupcakes for a friend's birthday party: chocolate with pink, cinnamon and cream cheese icing and topped with a malteser and some edible glitter because, darling, it's the thing. Slightly 70s disco-ball-esque, but cute.

Ready to go, present and cupcakes in tow, I realised I hadn't got a card. So I stuck one of the full size cupcakes in a box, labelled it "Eat Me" and addressed it to her. And I'm so keeping this idea for the future. Christmas, bring it on!

P.S. I'm going to Guides tomorrow! I'd like to train to be a leader so I'm pretty excited, especially as I loved Rainbows, Brownies and Guides so much when I was younger.


  1. I love your cupcakes and the eat me box idea is a great one.

  2. Enjoy your time with the Guides. I did just the same when I left university. I've stayed put and so I now see the children of Guides I used to take!

  3. I love youe Eat Me box!

    I have so many fond memories of Guides and the amazing work the leaders did. It's a fantastic thing to get onvolved in.

    Love the look of those scrummy cupcakes, and love the 'card' idea :-)

    Also, good for you wanting to get involved with Girl Guiding! I loved my time as a Brownie and Guide, and The Girl is now a Brownie and loving it too :-)
