A Weekend of Cake ..........

Hi everyone, and happy Monday to you!  I thought I would share a few pictures from my weekend with you today.  It was my Mum's 60th Birthday on Saturday so me and Grace made some vanilla cupcakes for mum and we decorated them with these butterflies made from icing.  My sister brought some butterfly cutters for Christmas and this is only the 2nd time I have used them. They are really easy to use though and they emboss too.  They were so easy even Grace could make them which she was really pleased about! 

The weekend didn't quite go as we planned as my Mum is in hospital at the moment so that was not the best way for her to spend her 60th Birthday.  But we took the cakes and presents to hospital and tried to make it nice for her and we plan to celebrate properly when she comes home. 

These were the finished cupcakes, complete with butterflies:

Now my sister's cakes are in a bit of a different league to mine and she made me this fabulous Birthday cake, how pretty are those flowers!  It's not my Birthday till next week but I won't see my sister on my Birthday so she brought it over early.  It's chocolate cake and it takes as good as it looks!

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs Lynsey x
