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.
~ Thank you Jeniffer~

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.”

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.”
