With my mother-in-law's 60th birthday in November I thought I'd try my hand at making some cupcakes...well the cupcakes I've made plenty of times before, but wanted to try something a little fancier for the frosting on top...this was my first attempt at piping and I cheated a little with store bought pre-made icing roses. I was really happy with how they turned out but will keep practising (and not give up my day job just yet!).
This cute little cupboard, which I'm thinking is a medicine cabinet (although have not seen this style & size before), was given to me by my mother's best friend...I am storing my ever growing collection of doilies in it for now.

And because I know I will not get back on here before Christmas, just wanted to say I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Christmas and New Year and thank you to everyone that comes to visit and for the lovely comments left.

Maybe my New Year resolution will be to....post more often!!!
