J’adore this recipe – Mother’s Day Surprise

Unfortunately for my Mummy, this Mothering Sunday she will be working.

She’s already a nurse but is training to be a midwife at the moment so the¬†gruesome facts about motherhood just keep on coming. But this also means she will be working a late and hopefully seeing some babies born this Sunday.

What a lovely Mother’s Day gift!

I thought that, as well as breakfast in bed, I would take the opportunity while she’s having a lie in to make her this soup.

If there is two things my mummy loves it’s sweet potato and goat’s cheese.

And chocolate, there will definitely be chocolate.

Recipe of the Week

Caramel Filled Brownies by Brandy

I’m feeling really indulgent today and this has to be the recipe I need! I’ve already bought a galaxy bar and chocolate biscuits but I feel there just isn’t enough chocolate in my life and I still need this…

Alice in Wonderland Cupcakes

I just saw someone else had posted some ice-cream cupcakes so I thought I’d show you a selection of cupcakes me and my sister made for an Alice in Wonderland party two years ago.

These, obviously, aren’t very Alice but we wanted lots of weird and wonderful food. Ice-cream cupcakes are so easy to make and people are always impressed!

The ones in the picture are simply basic cake mix, about half fill each cone. Then a good dollop of butter cream topped with sprinkles!

I think if i was going to make them again I would definitely put some treats in the cone i.e chocolate or marshmallows! Because it would melt it would certainly make a great surprise. We found these were deceptively large! And plain cake and cone can be very boring…

We also made our own lemonade and used drink me labels, bought lots of brightly coloured sweets and made a rabbit shaped jelly (which soon became vodka jelly once my friends got hold of it).

As well as these cute little cupcakes…
