Time Consuming Cupcakes

Hi everyone. Had quite a busy day today. First, I got some of the work done which I needed to do in the house then I started to make cupcakes with Wee Steven - Jack was off to his Grandad's for the Celtic game. So, I started tehse cupcakes at about 1pm...he had only been going on about them since 9am - he was so interested in them...He went away to watch Dora and left me to get on with it...'Shout me when they're ready, Mum'. What a cheek,lol!

Anyway, after that, I went to my mum's to get on with a different kind of cupcakes...

Jack has a winter fayre at school on Friday every other year, I get the wonderful job of home baking. So, this year, I wanted to do something a wee bit different. I bought some face cloths from Asda. I folded and rolled them into a cupcake shape. I bought a cupcake template from The Cutting Cafe and made some wrappers. I punched a flower to match and stuck a pin in to hold the flower in place.

So, I have made 2 pink, 2 red and 4 white cakes with different wrappers. Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of them all as I have very kindly left them with my mum so she can wrap them in some clear wrap, lol! I hope she doesn't mind. I only have this photo and it was a nightmare trying to get one because it took me all afternoon to get these right and by the time I was done, it was pitch black outside! I will add a photo of them all when they are all wrapped up.

I think these make another nice wee gift. I got the idea from a similar thing in Boots. They had a small lipgloss stuck in the middle.

Hope you like it and thanks for taking the time to look.

Fab idea hun, this looks lovely. I bought some of the Boots one's for a few of Jodie's school friends back along but would never have thought to make my own up
