Cupcake Anyone?

I bought myself a copy of the Sainsbury’s Magazine today.
I was totally sucked in by the front cover, boasting a ‘cupcake masterclass’.
I’m so glad I did! I was greeted with 7 pages of beautiful images, recipes and tips for baking, frosting and decorating really professional looking cupcakes.

When I managed to drag myself away from the cakes I realised this mag is a brilliant read! There are heaps of recipes, beauty tips, DIY tips, and home and garden ideas inside. Well worth the £1.40 it cost!
The cake Article is written by Peggy Porschen, who I am ashamed to say I had never heard of.
A quick google search later I was left completely amazed by her gorgeous creations. Here are just a few that made me swoon!
CK style, don't you think?

Love the bright colours!
Aren’t they fabulous?

This talented lady has 3 cake decorating books on the market (the wish list grows!) I think this one is going to be my first purchase. (I am of course totally judging the book by it's cover,!)
If any of you lovely ladies has this book already I would be grateful to hear your opinions (as always!)
There is a special offer in the magazine to get 'Cake Chic' at a discount price too, so really I'd be saving money by buying it wouldn't I? :)
I have been neglecting the baking recently (mainly because I don’t want to be tempted!) but the article and fabulous images have inspired me to have a crack as soon as I get the time.
The boys at work will be pleased!

Same place tomorrow, when the winner of the giveaway Will be revealed. You still have a chance to enter just leave a comment here


Lots of Love

Enough with the cupcakes, so unfair 'hehe'.
I'm sat here eating a ww almond slice and one just isn't enough so I think cupcakes may be calling me tomorrow lol, back out with the hummingbird book.
I have to admit to never hearing of Peggy, yet another book i'm going to have to look for.
I'm not surprised the Sainsburys mag is good, I love Sainsburys but unfortunately we don't have one near by.
Hope you've had a great weekend
Love and ((hugs))

Those cupcakes look way too good to eat, they are little works of art!

You have convinced me, I gotta check out that magazine and the cupcake recipes. Haven't baked for years, but its never too late to start again, right?

Wow, she is an amazing cake decorator!
The magazine sounds like a great find.
Im much the same as you that i dont bake too often because i dont want to eat it, so usually save baking for occasions or when i know i will be visiting friends or family.
