cupcakes and marzipan mice

to my good fortune charlotte is still happily baking away! since the last cake she has made three more forays into the kitchen and she promises there are many cakes still to come! 😀

for about a month i was treated to lots of delicious cupcakes. with batch 1 she experimented with chocolate chip bits which were delicious and with batch two she played around with icing and toppings.

“mouse to mouse resuscitation” tee hee…


i loved these cupcakes. having them each day at teatime was such a treat that when they were all finished i got withdrawal symptoms.

the cupcakes were followed by a cake with creatures on it. this was in practice for my eagerly anticipated birthday cake! i think the creatures are a mouse, an alien and… ur, something else. the creatures are so cute and made the cake a lot of fun. i think they were perhaps made out of dough and not marzipan – although i’m not sure… something was made out of marzipan, though. ah, hell, i don’t care, it all tastes good, that’s all i know! 😀



i’m sure the astute among you will have noticed that this is my first post for about a month! our laptop has been in the ICU once again and we finally made the difficult decision to pull the plug.

seriously, its been ridiculous for the past year. the laptop has been so unreliable. we’d send it off to be fixed, wait 3 weeks, have it working fine for 1 week, then have it stuttering and spluttering for a month before we’d send it off again. such a waste of time.

so we’ve finally decided to get a new laptop – hooray! and soon I’ll be able to spend more time in this place that some people call the inter net or what real clever people call cyber space. i’ve heard its great fun – but none of its real?! very confusing…

    I love it that you guys have green mice (mouse? Is the second one a mouse too?). How about purple ones next time? 🙂

    In case I don’t get a chance, Happy Birthday in advance, my fellow Aries.

    Happy early birthday JP! My mouth is seriously watering over here right now…cupcakes are my ultimate weakness! Seriously, I could eat 10 of them and probably still go for more. And that cake (along with cute green animals) looks delicious! Congrats on the new laptop! My life has been so much easier since getting mine!

    I’ll be around for tea at this rate. I love home baking and do next to none myself.

    Yes- you have been missed so I’m glad you’re back.

    Happy Birthday when it arrives. Will we get to see the cake before you start enjoying it??

    Well, I’m sorry you had to lose your laptop, but hopefully this new one will be more reliable. Computer problems are such a huge pain. All the cakes and treats look great! You’ve definitely benefited from your wife’s experiments!!!

    Aw, the critter cake is almost too cute to eat 😀

    Good news about the new laptop! I look forward to hearing from you more often! We miss you, Mr JP.

    You know that it’s almost cruel to post those pictures, don’t you? I’m sitting here just salivating away now!

    I so hope new computer means we’ll be seeing a lot more of you!!!
