Easter Weekend.

I was supposed to bring a dessert for the family Easter function and since I like making cakes. I did one and some cupcakes.
I got a two piece egg shaped pan and a cupcake decorating set the last time I was in the City and they came in handy this weekend.
The bismark tip was helpful in filling up the cupcakes, hubby did the filling for me. We just used vanilla pudding.

Buttercream Icing.

The flowers turned out alright, I didn't do well with the spiral top because the icing was too thick, not sure what I did there. The dots though take some practice.

I really have to learn to take my time or give myself time when doing cakes because I keep rushing through them and it ends up being sloppy. So I'm not impressed with my cake decorating right now. I need to practice more but honestly I eat the icing and the cake, so it's a no win for me caloriewise.

HI! Thanks so much for wanting to keep an eye on me and my blog. I really appreciate it. At this point in my journey I do need all the help that I can get - I will support you all the way. :)

The cupcakes look amazing! I made a cake the other day for my hubby's work and used a wooden spoon to make holes in it and filled them with carmel sauce - your icing bag makes soooo much more sense - I have a set of tips and bags tucked away and never use it - I do believe that you have given me a new use for it. You are very talented.

Looking forward to keeping in touch - I sent you an invite to your Gmail account. THANKS!
