a very Happy (un)Birthday to Me!






yes...it's my birthday...and for my party i just HAD to make my own cupcakes...cos let's face it...i'm such a freaking cake snob that i am so fussy about eating something i haven't made myself. i mean it has to be really good...so to avoid disappointment...i D-I-Y it! Being such an Alice in Winderland fan, i decided to throw a MadHatter's Tea Party and what better cupcakes than these...colourful vanilla cupcakes...decorated with those all important words 'eat me'. the very words that get Alice into all that trouble in the first place!
Happy Birthday to Me!

I love the look of these cupcakes. Such a dramatic color combination. I wouldn't write, "Eat me" on mine, but do like the colors. Happy Birthday!

Very cute Sinead. Happy Birthday! :) I did something similar a while back and they were such a hit. I think there's a bit of Alice in everyone :)

They look fantastic!

We just had our very first 'unbirthday' party launched by the lovely Nigella Lawson.

She helped children with leukaemia to bake and decorate 'fairy' cakes
