Baking Therapy

The last...year has been a tornado of life-changing moments, breathlessness and excitement. But the last few weeks have been stress piled upon less time piled upon exhaustion.

It turned out that our boiler giving up and needing completely replacing, and me needing to take the morning off work to let the men in and whatnot, on top of already having a cupcake order to fulfil, resulted somehow in a weird moment of calm (weird because over the drilling, yelling, scraping and hammering, I managed to just get away from everything for a little bit).

And thus I got some baking therapy.

finally found some cases that don't go see-through from the fat when cooking

I was really sad to let these babies go.

but fly away, my pretties, and make someone happy


  1. Very pretty, glad you are getting some use out of the star mould. I am sure the recipient will be suitably impressed. I always make enough so there are some left for us and then I don't have to give them all away. Hope the boiler situation is sorted. I know how stressful it is. xx

  2. Im a big believer in the power of baking, and looks like you are too :)

  3. red stars and b/w stripes? Those are the cutest cupcakes ever! Hang in there lady- hopefully all this stress now means more calm later. Hugs!!! That boiler thing sounds freaking awful!

  4. Looks yummie!! Very pretty your cupcakes!
    love your new therapy!
    Take care!! Hugs!

  5. Mmmmmm cupcakes! Yummers! xx
