let them eat cake

Pretty Pink Close up by cakejournal I feel at a loss not checking in here more often but I am really to busy with work and commissions just now so I'll have to make do with 2 or 3 posts a week :(

I spent the weekend making up earrings and got them all delivered on Monday in a godie box so hopefully they'll be selling lke hot cakes! I have a few schools wanting boxes too, so I'm going to start making up cards, little birds, and some more jewellery once I have cleared the decks from some other projects. I am also sorting out bo's books this week which I really enjoy, but I'm bursting with ideas and getting fustrated that I can't make anything untill I get them finished, so as a little treat I got myself a new cupcake book. "Cupcakes and Fairycakes", from the Australian Woman's Weekly.
I haven't had a chance to scan any of the images yet, but I have found some on Flickr mmmmm.
kylie lambert made both of the images above.

As I have mentioned before, I don't really eat sweet things, and can't really bake but I love how cupcakes look, are styled and photographed. There are some wonderful designs, I love the surface texture of these 2, they must take soooo much work. So my thought for today, 'llet them eat cake and I'll enjoy the styling!'
