Well it may not be perfect.....

One thing that I have never been able to do is bake, but the one thing that I have always wanted to try is cupcakes. My daughter Stephanie makes the most wonderful cupcakes (see below) and I got her to send me the recipie that she uses this week and this afternoon I have had a go - the result is far from perfect (as you will see!!), but I am chuffed to bits with my efforts.

Probably cost me more in getting all the bits and pieces together than I would have been to buy some from Marks and Spencer, but where would the satisfaction be there?

Here are a couple of photos of the ones that Stephanie made for Halloween last year - think I have a fair way to go to match these!!!

I will keep trying....
