Well Charlotte's 1st birthday is coming up very soon and so I got to thinking I might have a go at making her birthday cake or some cupcakes for it - so yesterday I made up a batch of cupcakes and decided to have a trial run.

I have always wanted to try making the little edible roses so off I went and came up with these...

Still needs some practise but not too bad for a first timer (I thought anyway).

I had been to a wedding expo last weekend and saw some embossed cupcakes and thought what a great idea - so I got out my cuttlebug embossing folders, some stamps (all freshly cleaned of course), cookie cutters and some ready-made icing and got experimenting.

and here's the results.....

I love how they turned out and they were so much fun to make.

Will definitely be making some for Charlotte's birthday!

Have a great weekend!!

Look who's walking!

Yes Charlotte has started taking steps!!!  Very exciting.... 


 She thinks she is sooo clever and her big brother is just so proud of her.  She has only taken a couple in succession but I'm sure it won't be long til she's toddling everywhere.  Can't believe there's only a couple more weeks until she is 1 year old.... how time flies when you're having fun.

Have been a bit slack blogging lately but will have more craftiness soon...take care  :)
