I think I have a a "CUPCAKE" obsession!!!! ROFL

My sister gave me a cup and saucer set in the Robert Gordon design "Vanilla Bakery" for Christmas........So I started the search for more pieces.....Of course it had to be a discontinued design so it was hard to find :(.......I searched Ebay and picked up a few bits and pieces BUT was still missing stuff I wanted (some lovely online friends even went to the IRL factory outlets searching for me <3 but still NO LUCK )......Finally it was in the Robert Gordon online store as clearance items YIPEEEEEEEEE ........So I did my bit for the country and stimulated the Robert Gordon economy ROFL

Grae and the kids gave me the teapot, cups and saucers and milk jug and sugar bowl in another cupcake design for my birthday :-)

And the few other pieces I picked up on ebay while searching for the "Vanilla Bakery" pieces

I have been shopping!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is how I store my "Cupcake Supplies Stash"

I now have 2 Cupcake Couriers :) LOVE THEM!!!!!!

My first proper "Cupcake Stand" from Cupcake Savvy
I really want to get a few different sizes now
This one is a perspex stand I just haven't taken the protective stickers off yet....trying to keep it scratch free for as long as possible LOL

Some Easter toppers and sprinkles
I think i grabbed the sprinkles off ebay ???
Cute little chicks in eggs came from Sugar Craft by Rosie
Funky Chooks from Layla's Sugar Flowers
And the Freaky "Evil Looking" rabbits also from Layla's

I am a regular shopper at Rosie's

Stumbled across these frog mini baking cups while searching on Ebay so HAD to have them.........Of course LOL added a few others baking cups in to make the most of postage ;-)

Cupcake Wrapture ROCKS!!!!!!!
Little wraps to dress up your finished cupcakes :)
Love love love these.....and way to many to choose from
Lisa is great to deal with and super fast with email answers and postage

These are Cupcake not for cooking in but for dressing up your finished cupcakes
I had so much trouble choosing which ones to get I soooo wanted them all LOL
These ones came from Yummy Cuppy Crafts on Etsy.....I am thinking about sourcing some cool paper/card and giving these a go :) Will just fit that in to all my spare time ROFL

These cool little Cupcake stickers came from Ladybug Labels on Etsy.....Going to give making some cupcake toppers ago and thought these would be a great way to start ....Nice and Easy....just what I need LOL

These baking cups all came from the lovely Amanda @ Hey YoYo on Etsy :)

I have a few more orders to come from some Etsy sellers so will add them when they arrive

Cupcakes for ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was my birthday last Saturday :)
Of course I got cupcakes cooked especially for me by my sister Kelli-ann and niece Jaimi-lee....Kell even phoned her partner's sister (thanks Ness) to get her famous cupcake recipe so I would be surprised <3

Cupcakes For the School Family BBQ

I made these for the School Family BBQ last week
4 Dozen minis all gone and they were asking for more LOL
I used the same recipe for these as I did for Coby's birthday....So Chocolate Fudge but these are topped with Chocolate Frosting and whipped Cream....I am so happy with how the frosting/cream turned I can't do it that good again

My Little "Fireman's" 3rd Birthday

All my little man wanted for his 3rd birthday was a fire truck .........So of course that is what he got :)

Cupcakes are Chocolate fudge with Chocolate frosting
Fire Truck Toppers from Layla's Sugar Flowers
