I haven’t really baked anything for a good while! Sam has very kindly had me to stay this week so I figured it was a prime opportunity to whip up some cupcakes! And they even survived the train up. These are “candy-cane” cupcakes – vanilla with swirled peppermint frosting from the Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days book!

I went on a day trip to Southend for work. The weather turned out quite nice and I got a few decent shots!
See if you recognise anyone over at The Arched Eyebrow!

Mr Humbugs in Greenwich Market is the place where dreams come true. You might think that’s hyperbole but it’s not.

My friend Tara came round again yesterday for more baking (+ air punching to Magic FM + watching Hercules on DVD). I like how these cupcakes turned out. Just your standard cupcake recipe with plenty of cocoa powder and some white chocolate chips thrown in.
I need to stop buying cupcake cases.
Note the Harry Potter lightning bolt, noughts and crosses and x_x cupcakes.
My x_x face brings all the boys to the yarrrd, and they’re like, baking is harrrd.
Also, a few shots from a confectionery shop in China Town! Seeing as we’re on the subject of sweet things.
My eyes widen whenever I walk into any of the Asian food shops in London. They’re always so cute and enticing. I’m easily tempted by cute packaging. Just the other day I was in a Japanese food shop on Brewer Street and came out with koala-shaped biscuits in a colourful, patterned box. Needless to say, I hadn’t even thought about them again until now. I don’t know if I even have the heart to eat biscuits shaped like koalas. If you want to sell something, put it in a cute box.

I went to Cambridge this weekend and had a lot of fun.
Oh man, the first picture. I keep laughing every time I see it. I love that hat and must attend a German Christmas market to purchase one of my own. It was nice to be back in Cambridge; it’s a quaint little town.
