Today's Cupcake is... August Flickr Faves
Originally uploaded by innocentcharmer
I know I know this is all I seem to post and for that I am truly sorry, but my life has been very hectic, my little cupcake who was born in January has been very poorly since then, finally now after a lot of back and forth they have found he has a bleed in his brain which is causing great developmental delay among other problems.
We are finally getting a more detailed MRI on the 7th in London so cross fingers they can get something moving to help my beautiful little cupcake.
So I have been making, baking and eating cupcakes, I do have piccy's to show and I promise I shall start posting more.
But here is a little taster of the goodies I have found on flickr already this month, I logged in on the 2nd and already there were 35 pages of uploads with the keyword of cupcake, we are taking over the world.
The top left shows an amazing Giant Cupcake baked by daniovertherainbow, go check her pictures for the step by step.
I love the little lego cupcake, lego is one of my fave toys.
The burp and bib set are adorable one day when I have a little girl I shall treat them to this.
The ATC is a total inspiration to me, its drawn with sharpies which I love and I thank stefanimak for allowing me to show it off.
Clair Louise a great new Etsy/Flickr Polymer Clay artist made these cute buttons, go check out her shop.
megan.chromik made these amazing ladybird cupcakes, I only hope that one day I can make such amazing cakes.
Click on the piccy's to get links if you want more details, take care all and cupcake love.

Anyway my May Flickr Fave's and there are some lovely piccy's this month and through them I have met some talented people.
Top Left Corner - Cute Cupcake Onsie Handmade and gorgeous from Prasti, I am sure she does sell these but of this I am not sure, but if you go to her Flickr you will see some gorgeous works.
Top Right Corner - Now I am defo in the need for this, hopefully I shall be able to get one shortly, how cute is this cupcake scarf and what incredible talent, this come from Sleepyeve and she does have a blog so go check it out.
Bottom Left Corner - BustyBaker that's this ladies flickr name and I think its awesome, much like these amazing cupcakes she makes, she calls these Neapolitan cupcakes and I was licking the computer screen in the hope I could taste them, once again as I type this I am drooling at the mouth. She also sent me a lovely email telling me her great blog addy so make sure you pop in and say hi.
Bottom Right Corner - Now when I saw this pincushion from Bekehjan I was super jealous of her Mom, what a fab gift, all I have is one of those plastic pincushions so this would be a fab cupcake improvement for my sewing box, what a lovely gift to give your mom. Rebekah also has a lovely blog which has a link to her shop so be sure to check this linky too.
And I was so taken aback I had to add 2 more..
When I saw the HK inspired Cupcakes you know they had to be featured I mean HK and Cupcakes 2 of my all time favourite things. these were made my Coco Cake Cupcakes this Cupcake Queen really knows how to make amazing cakes, check out her profile for all her contact details.
And last and by no means least I found this Brownie Bite Cupcakes, wow Brownies and Cupcakes in one Heaven and look how pretty with fresh Strawberry's, oh I do love a strawberry, this picture comes from Kellbakes this lady is a ceramic artist super jealous but does baking as a hobby, I wished I baked like this. Go check out her mini apple pies they are too cute.
So a few links for you to check out, some inspiration I hope and maybe some new friends to meet through the wonderful world of Flickr and Blogs.
Update on Grayson front, I have just this second had a phone call with an appointment date of 27th May for us to go to London to see the Neuro Dept. so fingers crossed finally some answers.
Love to All.

These are a few of my favourite things.
Sorry one of my fave films, so I just had to use it as a title and cupcake it up a little.
Isn't the package gorgeous, I am such a lucky girl, my BBF Laura and I do a Cupcake Art Journal back and forth to each other well when I opened up my parcel this week she had sent me some gorgeous cupcake goodies just cause, true friendship is when a friend does these things just cause and I count Laura as one of mine.
She sent me this great Cupcake Noughts and Crosses, Gray and I are going to love this, Cupcake Note cards (never too many), gorgeous Cupcake Notebook (already been put to use and finally but not certainly least is a gorgeous handmade by Laura Faux Cupcake with a cute ring I won inside, I can not wait to move and put this pride of place.
Also did you notice the gorgeous handmade cupcake designed paper, that is one of Laura's own designs, make sure you check out her shop, I am going to use this later on this month in a frame so watch this space.
Cupcake Love to All, I hope you have had some sweet goodness this weekend.

So this month I joined a couple of swaps through Swap-bot to make myself craft, the other day I sat down for a whole 1 hour and a half and played and it was real fun. I mean it ain't much to say the least I am certainly no artist but it allowed me to relax and let off steam.
The first swap was a Cupcake ATC swap, one cupcake themed ATC for 1 partner, I have actually made 2, one for my partner and one for swap host. The ribbon ATC's are one of my old faves but I included some cupcake ribbon this time.
The second swap was a cupcake goodie bag, which you could decorate, I did with 3 cupcake related items in and if possible tailored to your partners likes. I actually included 5, Cupcake Napkins (a great accessory for any kitchen), cupcake ribbon, vintage cupcake cases, cupcake lip gloss and a yankee vanilla buttercream cupcake candle. I would be happy to receive this, how about you ?
On that subject I was wondering if there is any interest I was thinking of doing a similar swap, you pack 3 items in an envie for your partner, doesn't have to be decorated, they can be anything cupcake related from baking them to wearing them for a total budget of £6.00, so we can all afford, just something to cheer us up in these dyre financial times, post whether you are interested and hopefully if we get a few people I shall host the swap through my blog.
Anyway I have plenty more to post about, sorry for the delay Grayson is still no better so it has been a nightmare, he is back to hospital on Thursday to be reevaluated and more results, I am thinking they will admit him again. Cross fingers they can help him this time.
Cupcake Goodness to all.

It started off for me on Saturday getting my Easter Pressie from my MIL and SIL, they felt I needed super cheering up after a bad couple of weeks, so off they went to Debenham's and treated me to the Awesome Cupcake Teapot which is part of my Cookie Jar collection that I have wanted forever - woohoo Anne I finally have it.

Bottom Right Piccy is Grayson getting high on his Oxygen - lol
Sorry I haven't been around but my life has been very difficult in the past 2 weeks, on Thursday 2nd April after a few poorly days for Grayson we headed off to clinic to get his weekly weight check (as unlike his Mommy he is underweight) whilst I was there long story short Gray went Blue, floppy and near enough stopped breathing an ambulance was called and he was put on Oxygen and rushed to hospital. After a week long stay for us in the hospital, 20 sets of Bloods, MRI, EEG, Oxygen, Med's and more doctors then you can imagine we are finally home, no one is quite sure what happened but he is doing a lot better, he is still not right and has to go back several more times and due to problems on his MRI all his test results have been sent to London to a specialist to be looked at, we are not sure what will happen, obviously we hope that everything is fine but I know if they do come back with some of the things they are saying I shall never love Grayson any less.
So anywho onto the cupcakes, well to cheer me up in the hospital my lovely Hubby one more brought this in for me, aren't they adorable, along with the lovely cupcake cookie jar range Debenhams have brought out some more Cupcake goodies, including this lovely Milk Jug and Sugar Bowl. I love the fact they are so different to the other stuff they do, they are more delicate.
Well there is other Easter Cupcake goodness to tell you about but I shall post that tomorrow, want to get back to my regular updates if I can.
P.S don't you think hospitals should have Internet for us poor people that have to pretty much live there.

Seriously, I do not have a large Kitchen but how could I walk past this and ignore it, I mean it was screaming to me and lets be honest its a smaller version of my other Cupcake Cookie Jar so it needed to be with its sister - lol, well that's my story and I am sticking to it.
Now I just have to sneak the matching Teapot in, ummm, families should stick together shouldn't they, well that's what I am going to tell the hubby.
P.S. Its from a line of Cupcake Greatness at Debenhams - go check it out
