Sweet Treats

Happy Monday! Hope you're well and had a lovely weekend!

I had such a lovely time at the Squires Kitchen Cake Decoration Exhibition on Saturday, I spent all day there with Rafina...we saw amazing cakes, watched some fab demos, bought some new baking goodies and were generally really inspired. It was awesome!

Tonight I have a fab, bright card to share with you....it just makes me smile when I look at it!

I made this card for two challenges...firstly Cupcake Craft Challenge's challenge is "Up in the Air" with optional green. I'm quite into bees on cards at the moment, and I couldn't resist using Lenny dressed as a bee for this challenge...he's so cute! The second challenge I'm entering this card in is the "show us your green" challenge over at Stamp Fairy....I hope I've used enough green! I've used a plain yellow backing paper, along with some pretty green flowery paper. I've highlighted the flower centres with a little glitter glue. I've coloured Lenny and added him to the card with 3D sticky pads, I've also used some glitter glue on his wings! Pop by both blogs to see the gorgeous DT cards.

Cupcake Craft Challenge also has a DT call this week, stop by their blog for more details!

Do you remember I shared those fab chocolate cake bites with you last week? Well, I've been in the kitchen again and I've been a little bit more brave this time...instead of balls I made mini cupcakes!

I've also developed the recipe a little, making them slightly less sweet and the cake is less squishy! I made vanilla and strawberry ones....and so far the feedback has been really positive. I've ordered some lollypop sticks, so next time I make them, they will be proper cake pops!

Thanks for stopping by today and thank you to everyone for their lovely comments, you always make me smile when I see them.
