Jungle Baby Shower Cupcakes

Greetings greetings, it’s been a while since I’ve done a proper post but here I am. How are you? Good God really?! That sounds awful.

Well anyway here are some jungle themed cupcakes I made for a baby shower. The order was for 30, so I made little model baby jungle animals out of fondant icing and then for a bit of variety, and to cut down the number of models I had to make I put little orange flowers and some.

Week 8 of the Doodles: Take #2

I do apologise for this not going up on Friday, but the blog and the internet teamed up against me on Saturday when I tried before. As I have absolutely nothing to say, it has become apparent to me that I have been doing nothing of interest, only exceedingly mild work for my dissertation. I read about 6 pages.

The Wreck

The Wreck

Oh well, here is your disgustingly late doodle, a bit from a shipwreck. I was watching a Time Team special on the wreck of the Colossus which sank off the Scilly Isles in very late 1700′s I think, and they discovered this section of the back of the ship where all the snazzy windows are for the officers and there is this near perfectly preserved carving of a man in Greek armour which framed one of these windows. So this is based off that.

au revoir

Week 7 of the Doodles: Take #2

I can finally post this! Lord love a duck that was a trial, also the more eagle eyed of you will note that Week 5 of the Doodles has gone walkabout, I had to take it down because something in it was causing the glitching for blog. It’ll go back up soon.

What ho, dear blog readers! I have failed again to be on time. But with reason, the picture I wanted to post I was giving to a friend who I didn’t want to see it before it hand on the blog. So I saw her on Friday and gave her the picture so now you all get to see it. So from Gwen’s poem Post Romantic comes this illustration.

A bout of adult chicken pox,
Sits upon my fixed expression,
Crouching on your doorstep,
My arm stuck in your letter box,

Betwixt the orange stitch,
Of my chunky knit blazer,
And the brass effect, tourniquet, flap,
I can squint, just through the lint,
Your self defence taser,

I paper cut my fingertips,
On my folded pukka sheet,
Some pathetic homiletic lines,
I’d rather not repeat,

Regret not fully fledged,
When my extremity was wedged,
I’ve now rehearsed the lines,
Where life love and sanity are pledged,

You ARE the doorway to my heart,
I’m IN the doorway to your flat,
At least we’ve got the opportunity,
For us to have a chat,

Your eyes are bright like laser beams,
You hair is soft like kettle steam,
You’re honeydew, I swear to you,
This is not what it seems,

You clip clop back from five a side,
Those beams are gleaming homicide,
My elbow’s turning purple,
And wish I’d never tried,
You use a pair of size ten crocs,
To prop open your letter box,
Slain with shame yet again,
Eye level with your knee high socks,

The protracted pain of extraction,
Gives you a sickly satisfaction,
But one limb break and entry,
Is less a crime, more an infraction,

A bout of adult chicken pox,
Peeling off my fixed expression,
As you explain that you don’t know me,
To a pair of lanky cops.

A little penance…

I gave up chocolate for lent,

to praise God and life anew,

but left alone with a toblerone,

there’s no knowing what I’ll do.

A Slight Delay

I can’t post week 7 doodles I’m afraid the blog keeps glitching on me and stalling the internet pages. Many apologies and I’ll keep trying.

au revoir

Coffee Cake

A rather dower, self important looking coffee cake with a bit of piping work on top. I do love a bit of coffee butter cream, it is the queen of the butter creams I feel.

In other news the side bar of the blog is still doing a disappearing  act on the homepage,for me at least, and i don’t have a sausage of a clue what to do about it. Does anyone know? I’ve been googling but I’m stuck, I might have to get my computer savvy brother onto it.

Week 6 of the Doodles: Take #2

Yes I’m a little late, but I have just moved back home again, sorry. I have essentially finished my second year of uni now and it feels really weird to be back home all of sudden. I’m going to visit the farm at my mum’s school tomorrow and they have lots of little bouncy baby things scurrying about all over the place, so I’ll take pictures for you. On a different note, if you’re experiencing a disappearing toolbar on the blog (the thing with our blog roll and archives on , I’m actually sure of the name) we’re sorry wordpress has come over with a case of glitching, we hope it gets better soon.

Bashful Mouse

Bashful Mouse

Here is a bashful mouse giving you all a little pressie for I don’t know what but I’m sure you all deserve something, you read our blog at least. I was practising expressions and went a bit overboard. I’m afraid I’ll break off suddenly at this point because I need to get up early in the morning and I’m really tired.

au revoir
