Cakes For The Boys!

Having gestational diabetes doesn't mean I can't indulge my love of baking!
Luckily for me James' workmates are only too happy to assist in the eating part!
I'd been neglecting them lately so when they did overtime on Sunday I thought I'd make them a little treat!

James chose lemon cupcakes with lemon icing from the Primrose Bakery book (with added bling in the form of sugar sparkles and a touch of lime green glitter!).
I am ashamed to say that, despite having the book for a year, this is the first recipe I have tried!

According to my lovely 'testing panel' they were pretty good, but they need to try some other flavours to judge properly!!!

Lots of Love

Ooh, yummy! I'm coming to visit you to help eat cake. ;)

I hope you are feeling well, so glad to hear that your babe is doing well.

I think you could totally wear a hat! Or at least, make your child wear hats so you can live vicariously through them. :)

If they tasted as good as they look then they must have been fabulous.
I don't blame them for wanting more!

Wow those look fantastic and so professional. I've got to make some cupcakes for Friday at work, did you make the topping out of cream cheese and icing sugar? Wish I could put my hands in the screen and grab one LOL! x

Such a good wife!! Well done you.

(Hope the gestational diabetes isn't making life too difficult for you, my sister had it and I know it can be a pain in the arse sometimes. Hurray for other people who are willing to eat your baked goods though!)
