Button cakes.

Sophie's new Ikea domed cake stand, isn't it pretty?

Yesterday Sophie (Miss 26) baked chocolate cupcakes. And since I am now awesome at making buttercream icing (see this post) I whipped up some icing to go on top. (Seriously, my buttercream icing is delicious!) She also whipped up some fondant buttons to decorate the tops of the cupcakes. We are so into sewing here! Which brings me to the sewing activity for today. We went to Spotlight to partake of their 30% off sale. We went early, but it was still busy. We did get lots of fabric for a small amount of money though so all good! (For those who still have my "not buying anymore fabric" affirmation ringing in their ears, most of the fabric was Sophie's. - Yep! Another excuse!) So glad to be home now though and finally getting into the sewing room for today.

You're too funny - excuses, excuses!! :-) If I had play money I would be getting some of that new Prints Charming range on sale.

PS I meant to say that chocolate cupcakes would not last in our house before I had a chance to ice them.

Love the dome/stand and I think the cupcakes are as cute as a button!

Those are such cute cakes. Great job. I love the cake dome. Looks like the ones that you see in the shops. Gotta love IKEA.

I do like that dome cake cover. Been wanting one for AGES. Once I get the kitchen done (in my next life) I recon that will be a xmas purchase. Then I will ALWAYS have to have some sort of goody in it (wink).
