Cupcakes and Flowers - yum!

Had a lovely day today with my niece. We made a special trip to Morrisons to purchase our ingredients then it was back to mine to bake. Flour and icing sugar flew all over the kitchen, we had frosting all over our fingers but after much faffing around this is what we came up with.

We used a recipe from this month's Easy Living magazine that she had bought and we think they look very much like the ones in their article, maybe not quite as posh but boy did they taste yummy.

Oh and this little fella had come out in my garden, the sun was shining brightly on it so just had to take a piccie.

And these smell divine! Haven't a clue what they are though?

Finally here is the humble dandelion, not ugly as you can see, but sadly to gardeners this is just a weed and therefore it's life is always short lived in most gardens. My niece wouldn't go near it for fear she would wet the bed, good ol' wives tails eh!

Spring is just the best! xx
