Silent Sundays

It's been a lot more Martha than Madonna this week.

With just a touch of Ruby thrown in for something entirely unexpected.

I have been trying out different kinds of cupcakes all week for something special coming up soon. So I decided to have a bit of fun with it all and I wasn't short of taste testers.

I love the fact that the humble cupcake has gone gourmet and can be kind of playful, hip and glamorous (although unfortunately not yet calorie free). Who'd a thought it - apple & rhubarb and lime & chocolate.

However, who would also have thought that these small, innocent-looking creatures could be so deadly. After this week I would advise you not to approach a cupcake unless accompanied by both a cupcake wrangler (so that no injuries occur in the race to get the one you want) and an authorised health professional.

Ruby invited herself to help me because she is now obsessed with anything that may make it on the blog (yet she is too shy for pictures). I let her ice some of today's batch in her favourite brilliant blue and canary yellow (!).

"The cupcakes look beautiful, Ruby," I said when she finished. "How did you get the icing so neat?"

She replied, "It was easy. I just licked them."

Ah well..... looks like Ruby has her own personal cupcake stash for some weeks to come now...not sure there would be that much competition for that colour scheme anyway. Bliss.

Enjoy your Sunday - comments closed - take a break and go eat a cupcake.
