Well, we have leaping lambs in the fields next to our garden, it's staying much lighter in the evenings - which brings much confusion & frustration over bedtime for a 4yr old - and we've had at least one sunny day, so it's official spring has sprung.
There's something about baking along with the seasons too, or rather decorating I suppose. These spring & Easter themed cupcakes brightened our days at Cupcake Corner, and luckily the days of lots of very keen shoppers at the Coeliac's Food Fair. Brownies flew off the table and sold out in the first hour! Thank Goodness for my wonderful nephew Matt who helped me to set up and then stayed a while longer and helped serve the first rush of hungry cupcake fans!
This week, I'm busy preparing for Thursday's Childrens' Spring workshop (still a couple of places left) so more cute bunnies, daffodils, spikey grass and very moreish mini eggs. Opening a bag of mini eggs has proved lethal, I kept polishing them off and having to send out for more supplies! As a result, I am now appearing very clearly pregnant! This baby is going to have such a sweet tooth, I must resist all these goodies a bit more!
Well, I hope you are enjoying a few rays of sunshine wherever you are, and that Spring brings you a burst of energy to start afresh

Phil Vickery, TV Chef, loves Cupcake Corner cakes, he said "I have to say I am very impressed, the packaging, colours and style is great and as for the cakes...they are very good indeed, seriously good in fact. Your ideas sound very exciting, I'm sure you'll go far"
Charlotte moved back home to Derbyshire in 2004, and had a little girl a year later. Since being diagnosed with Coeliac disease in 2008, she has been frantically baking in order to still eat her favourite cupcakes, and she hit on a winner of a recipe! Try for yourself
