Cupcake Decorating

Today I had the day off work to go on a cupcake decorating course with my lovely sister-in-law.  It was actually booked before 'The Break-Up' but was lucky timing to get away and do something fun.  We went to Confetti and Spice in Henley-On-Thames - we'd got a cheap deal through Groupon (of course!)

I'm not the best at cupcake decorating (I'm more of a cake-eater!), I'm much better at other forms of crafting (well, I like to think I am anyway!) - but it was still great fun!

The cakes I made actually don't look too bad!  The purple one with flowers on was the worst - my icing didn't want to stay on the cake (it looks even worse in real life - the flowers are decidedly dodgy too, but you can't tell in the photo!) but the rest look okay!

I don't actually feel like eating them at the moment (I'm notorious for my sweet-tooth, but it's not its usual self right now... wow, things must be bad...!)

While we were in Henley-on-Thames, we had lunch and popped into a couple of the shops.  I bought myself this lovely pink timer for the kitchen:

A suitably girlie item for the home, now that I am a lonely spinster woman... (Oh, woe is me!)

Thanks again for the lovely comments.  I have been so overwhelmed by the love and support from friends, family, colleagues, and blog friends... you don't realise how great everyone is until you go through a tough time like this.  The world is full of decent people - who knew?!  ;o)
