Easter Cupcakes and More

Having been inspired by all the cupcake pics being posted on other blogs/forums I decided I'd make some for Easter Sunday, as we were having all the family round  for a bbq, and here they are.  My very first ones too - previously all I've done are bog standard buns!  I bought a new icing set from Lakeland on Thursday to do the tops with and I'm really pleased with them.  They taste good too! :0)

I also made some egg shaped biscuits, using a vanilla sable recipe, and left them plain so that the kids could decorate them themselves.  I'm not sure who had more fun, the big kids or the little ones!

Look how pleased Adam looks with his biscuit!

 Look at the concentration on Lexie's face!

And lastly, Karen showing off her handiwork:

We'd hidden loads of chocolate eggs in the house and garden and the kids had fun finding them - and eating them , of course!  Even Emily got some to take home (I bet her Dad eats them though).

It was a lovely afternoon even though the sun deserted us, although I think it was all a bit much for the chef! :0D

  1. Loving you Easter Post!
    I made biscuits as well this weekend, but none of them so posh! Will definately try again this week though :)
    Need to get some posh decorating stuff :)
