Today my little blog turned 1!! So exciting, I cant believe its been a full year since I sat down and decided to start my own little experience in blogging. You cant have a birthday without cake right? and any excuse is a good excuse to have cake. I popped into Laurent on my way home from work today and got a chocolate mousse cake.
It was a delicious cake, very rich, but perfect for the occasion.
So what have I achieved in the 12 months to date? well so far I've only eaten at 14 out of the 100 restaurants. Thats only 14%...seems like such a daunting task ahead of me! I've only managed to cooked 10 recipes from the restaurants. I really need to lift my game! Well I have holidays coming soon, so there will be plenty of cooking and eating to come! yay!
For a bit of fun I bring you part two of cupcake fun! I love seeing cupcakes in everyday life, and like I said in my previous post, they seem to be poping up more frequently! I apologize for the bad quality photos, but cupcakes attack at any time, and sometimes I'm only armed with my mobile phone!
First up we have a cupcake bib. Its a great idea, get them addicted early and they will have a long happy life....with cupcakes!
My trip to work takes me past the Melbourne showgrounds and recently the Royal Show was on. While stopped at a red light, I turned my head and what did I see, cupcakes! Yay! I contemplated buying a ticket to go in and see said cupcake, but then the light turned green and I had to go.
Next is good old Riot Art Supply. I find alot of cupcake inspiration/material here. The most recent addition is a cupcake apron.
Lastly from my local newspaper a story about cupcakes! They also featured a recipe for cupcakes. To view a larger version please double click on the image.
Tucked in the far corner is a price comparison between iced and un-iced cupcakes. My question to you is, is a cupcake still a cupcake if its un-frosted/iced????
Well that caps the first birthday of this little blog. The song was sung, candles blown out and cake eaten. So bring on the next 12 months, at least there will be cake again next september!!
