A Bad Mood and A Craft Fair

Thankfully not on the same day!  Today has been one of those bad mood days.  Not really sure why - maybe it was the thought of all the housework I have to do, or the fact my cat brought me a dead squirrel this morning, either way, I wasnt a happy bunny this morning!!  So what did I do to cheer myself up?  I made cupcakes!!  A guaranteed way to put a smile on my face is to either make cupcakes or buy something with cupcakes on.  Seeing as I've put pretty much all cupcake merchandise on my christmas list to Santa, I thought I'd have a go at making some.  Here is the result...

They are chocolate and orange cupcakes with white chocolate frosting.  Ooooooo get me!!  The recipe is here if anyone is interested.  However, dont panic, this isnt turning into a food blog - I still cant get the frosting right.  It was fine til I added the white chocolate, maybe the recipes wrong *looks confused*.

Anyway, they served their purpose in that they cheered me up and they dont taste half bad!!  Im eating one as I type, just to prove it :)

I realised the other day that Im nearly at 50 followers!  Yey me!  Im planning a little giveaway for when I reach 50 so keep watching this space for details.  It will tie in nicely with Christmas too, as Im feeling all Christmassy of late.

Speaking of which, my Christmas decs went down a treat at my latest craft fair.   As did my large hanging letters.  It was a quiet day but fun all the same.  Here's a few photos...

I've made this for a lady who ordered it from the craft fair.  Have three more to make and two name banners too so the orders are doing well!

I'll be back soon with details of my giveaway!
