I do love a good SALE

From my last post you may have seen the sweet cupcake teapcup and saucer my hubby treated me too.
Well last week we took a trip to Fenwicks so he could show me what else they did in the line, as we were walking past I noticed the sign SALE in the kitchen department and took a wonder and found some cupcake goodies.
I was a good girl and limited myself to 2, a new Cupcake Jar ( I must start putting stuff in them) and a Cupcake Trivet which is very useful.
They had more stuff so I shall have to make sure I don't sneak into town.

Cupcake Gifts

I have been very lucky these past couple of weeks and have been fortunate to receive a few cupcake gifts.

1st is part of Package Project, a great handmade Cupcake Plushie, now living in the Kitchen.

2nd - my beautiful Flickr Friend Anna, she sent me some Cupcake items for having picnics, they are super cute.

And last but no means least my gorgeous hubby turned up with the most amazing Cupcake Teacup and Saucer - hand painted.

So what about you, received any cupcake gifts?

Flickr Faves - Art for the Walls

Flickr Faves - Art for the Walls
Originally uploaded by innocentcharmer

We are moving home in the summer and I have realised that although I have a great deal of Cupcake trinkets in my kitchen I have very little Art for the walls, so today I popped around Flickr to see what is around and I thought I would share.

I am thinking of doing a cupcake ATC swap as I would love a collection of cupcake ATC's on one wall.

If you have any art suggestions for me, do tell.

What's Up Cupcake ?

On Saturday the Hubby, Grayson and I took a walk in Whitstable and browsed a few shops of course.

I had heard on the grapevine that we finally had a Cupcakery in Whitstable in Kent, so I made it my mission to find it and finally at about 4pm soaking wet from the rain we walked up to this adorable Green and Pink shop front and there is was....

The window was full of gorgeous Cupcake gift items (which they sell) and had such a lovely feel. I walked into a gorgeous little pretty shop with Cupcake Trinkets all around and then a lovely counter with Cupcakes. The shop was very busy and there were only a handful of Cupcakes left (obviously a good day) so I quickly snapped up the last 2 Vanilla Cupcakes before someone else could.

The staff were in beautiful matching uniforms and wrapped our cupcakes so diligently, if the store had not been so busy I honestly would have taken piccys and had a chat as it is gorgeous inside.

Ashley and I waited till we got home to try our Cupcakes and I must say they were scrummy, the cake was incredibly moist and dense as I love my cupcakes a real bite and with the little Jazzies on top they had just the right amount of decoration.

I can honestly say I shall be re-visiting, not only to try and get another flavour but also to get some piccy's for you all too see.

So please people if you are ever local to Whitstable, go visit What's Up Cupcake, as it is so lovely to finally have our very own Kentish Cupcakery.

Eat Me

Last weekend I got round to making some Raspberry and White Chocolate Cupcakes from my "Eat Me" book.

Its a time consuming recipe, you have to make your own Raspberry Jam and White Chocolate Cream Sauce but its worth it as they are a lovely flavour.

I will be changing a couple of things next time, I shall put less Raspberries in the cakes and add less of the Jam to the Buttercream Frosting as it made it very runny but that's the gift of baking to learn.

I also got to use my new Lakeland Piping Syringe, I think it would have a done good job if the Buttercream had not been so runny.

If you would like the recipe just let me know.

Today's Cupcake Is... May 2010 Flickr Faves
Originally uploaded by innocentcharmer

I promised I would try and keep up with my Flickr Faves and although I did not make it in April I have a lovely selection for you this month.

Firstly gorgeous handmade hairslides, I love these, although I don't think my super thick hair would. The pink colours are just awesome.

The canvases are the cutest thing, I have been thinking when I move in the summer I shall need some more Cupcake Art for the walls so these are a total inspiration.

The Lampwork Cupcake earrings are outstanding, this lady makes some of the best lampwork I have seen and she has a whole range of cupcake jewels, so get check it out.

The cupcake lampshade maybe in my home in the hear future, I just need to make sure my new kitchen will have space for it, so watch out.

Retro Cupcakes - are a real fave of mine and these are super pretty, I only wish I had a little girl to indulge these delights in.

Lastly the cupcake liners in a jar - totally love. I am off to Brighton on holiday tomorrow and trust me I will be on the look out for a glass jar to show mine off in, so simple yet so pretty.

So I hope you have enjoyed this months favourites, please click on the picture to go check out these peoples photostreams.

Cupcake Sparkles

365 - Day 106
Originally uploaded by innocentcharmer

Thought I would drop in and show you these gorgeous Cupcake Sparkles I got this past week.
They are so cute, its a Necklace and Brooch, that were both in the ASOS sale, they did matching earrings too but I have so many I took a rain check on those.

I am pretty sure the Necklace was £8.00 and the Brooch was £6.00.

They sparkle lovely, so head on over and trea yourself, every girl deserves some Cupcake Jewels.

Get your Groceries and a Treat

Now many of you may know I am a huge shopping fan and even that of the weekly food shop but because of time and financial restraints my food shop has become a thing of the past and I now use Tesco Online and pick my favourites and just buy, I can't complain cause this is not a luxury we had as much as 3 years ago but with the Online Favourite Shop you do not get to walk around and see all the new goodies Tesco (or your local) has to offer, well this week I had a treat, Sunday I got to go to Tesco, although I must say with a groan, as I was super tired and full of cold. But once I walked into Tesco my life got much better, as I was met with not 1, not 2 but a whole host of Cupcake Goodies to start collecting. I was over the moon and it brought a smile to my face (some may say this is sad).

I was a good girl and only bought 3 items (financial restraints as I mentioned) but I thought to myself its ok I will get myself a piece a week, then it hit me we do online shopping, so you must have heard my jumps for joy across Britain once I got home as much to my sheer pleasure I find Tesco have put the line Online for me to buy with my weekly groceries - I LOVE YOU TESCO.

You can go to Tesco to check them out but as of yet they do not have pictures up :-( but here I have included a piccy of my 3 goodies, 2 melamine bowls and a tray, the whole line is identical.

I thought I would list what I remember they had for those that are interested...
Worktop Saver,
Plastic Mat,
2 Tins.

Hope all are well and don't forget folks, if you have anything Cupcake related you would like me to blog about please feel free to email me, I am always on the look out for a new interesting post.

March 2010 Flickr Handmade Faves

Today's Cupcake Is... March 2010 Flickr Handmade Faves
Originally uploaded by innocentcharmer

I thought my Flickr Fave's this month would have a twist, many of you know I make and craft and still when I can sell my wares.

I am also a fan of buying handmade (although not as much as I like) and have handmade wares around my home.

So today my Flickr Fave's are also all handmade and some I believe are even for sale if they take your fancy, just click on the flickr links.

I love the ring in the top corner, its very rare you see Silver jewellery Cupcake inspired.

My friend Jenny made the great pendant Necklaces below, I have a gorgeous custom piece of her art and feel very blessed.

Mickey Mouse and Disney were for sure going to get in there as I and Grayson are huge fans.

I hope you are all well, my Cupcake Baking has been at an all time low of late but I am hoping Easter will be a great occasion for me to bake.

Growing Cupcakes

I popped by GMTV's website today and was so pleased to see Cupcake inspired gifts for Mother's.

I see the world has finally started answering my call.

They had the usual Cupcake gifts but then I cam across the 2 cutest things I have seen in a while.

Is there any Green Fingers reading, well lookie here.

Aren't they cute, I of course especially love the Teacup set as I am a massive fan anyway.

I hinted to Ashley, but I think he and Grayson may have already got me a host of goodies.

Exclusively for You also has some other lovely gifts, they have been added to my favourite bar and I am sure they will yours too.

Off out all weekend, not Cupcake related but hoping one will crop up somewhere.

Have a lovely weekend.

Urban Outfitters are Cupcake God's

Its funny a year ago you had to look long and hard on the high street to find anything cupcake inspired, well I was obviously a trend setter ahead of the times, cause now they are everywhere, as I found out on Valentines Day. The hubby took me for a quick nip round Bluewater to choose myself a gift and I had already decided it would be a nice piece of Jewelery from Urban Outfitters(check out my flickr) whilst I was there I was looking at there Kitsch home goodies, cause we all know I am the queen of Kitsch and to my delight I found CUPCAKES, these had to be bought obviously, my Hubby is so good and patient with my cupcake collection as there is certainly no more room in our kitchen but he says "you'll find it". Man I Love him.
I had said no to the Key Covers but he snuck them in without me seeing.

So did your Valentines, come with Cupcake Treats ?

On another subject my gorgeous baby boy had his big tests this week, under General he had a Lumbar Puncture and Bloods totalling 4 1/2 A4 pages of tests, he was amazing and everyone could not believe how good he was, so fingers crossed now for the results.

Love to All
