 I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend, I just realized  we only have 2 more Sundays till Christmas!!!
I'm suddenly feeling  uneasy about the fact that I  haven't done any Christmas Shopping, I have no Christmas decorations up, but wait, I sent the Christmas Cards on Monday, so that's good, a slight relieve there... and back to my morning tea....

Today I want you to meet someone who's  creative Cupcake ideas,sugar and chocolate work captured my eye many months ago. .. Meet Jennifer from The Lone Baker.

2. Jeniffer, I just wanted to say that I truly admire you, I know you have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2002 and been constantly fighting the pain, where do you find your strength and your positive attitude? I also wanted to at this time wish you all the best.
Jeniffer : "Thank you, you're too sweet. This sounds flippant but  there is truth in "if I wasn't laughing I'd be crying" & luckily I have family & friends to laugh with.  I also admired my Mums ability to find joy from the small things in life; my "small thing" is baking cupcakes and I love that they can bring a smile to peoples faces."

4. Ever since I found you on Flickr, I’m constantly amazed by your creative approach to Cupcake decorating, where do you find your inspiration?
Jeniffer : "Oh Hani I'm blushing, thank you that is such a compliment from someones whose work I so admire. Goodness, history (I adore Carême), literature, pop culture & everyday life."

5. I know you are a vivid Cupcake Liner Collector, and I’m just wondering do you have  number of how many different designs of liners you own, who is your favorite supplier?
Jeniffer : "Sshhhh, I have 75 designs in my "treasure chest" and a second collection with 45 designs.  I use Fox Run a lot, but I do love the gorgeous designs coming out of Europe that use Swedish paper."

7. When you think of Christmas what is the first dessert that comes to your mind?
Jeniffer : "It would have to be the memory of my Aunt Clare's "interesting" scotch whisky trifle. I don't think anyone in my family will ever forget the choking burn of whisky with every mouthful, yet it was made with so much love we would always have seconds."
