Cupcake Photo Shoot

Last Friday one of my friends very kindly agreed to come over and take some pictures of a few of my cupcakes. She always takes lovely pictures for her website so I was thrilled that she was free to take some nice shots for the new website for Icing Bliss that I am currently trying to put together. I'm anxiously awaiting to see how the photos turned out.....but in the meantime, here are some of the cupcakes I made and the pictures I took of them before the official photo shoot started..........

 Pretty shabby chic rose cupcake

White petunia cupcake - so pretty - I recon these cupcakes would look beautiful as a vintage wedding cupcake tower 

 Bouquet of roses - I love making these cupcakes :)

 Sample of black and white designs

Pink and black chic

Shabby chic blossom cupcake

I made a few other cupcakes but I will wait for the official photoshoot pictures to come through before I share them with you. Stay tuned......

Happy baking xx

Gingerbread Advent Cookies

I decided to make my own advent calendar this year - in gingerbread form.

The recipe I used for these cookies is here, if you want to make some. You could make sugar cookies as well. Use different shaped cutters for variety and decorate with royal icing or sugarpaste. I opted for a simple white design to match my white christmas tree decorations. These cookies make great decorations hung around the house, or on the Christmas tree.
