Day one of this blog......

Why am I doing this?????Well I'm finding that I'm fairly lonely, occassionally bored and very over facebook so here we go. What will I blog about, who knows probably random stuff. You will have to excuse my poor blogging skills, hopefully this will improve.

Cake faces

First birthday cake face

Chase enjoying birthday cupcakes


So the first birthday has come and gone and we celebrated by having a pub lunch with cupcakes. It was a lovely day and made more wonderful by all the people that came. Thank you everyone. Dios really loved his gifts, playmates and the cupcakes.
Initially I started out trying to find a sugar free cake recipe but as Kao pointed out birthdays only happen once a year so a little sugar isn't that harmful. The cupcakes didn't look that beautiful but they tasted pretty good. The recipe is as follows (or what I can remember anyway)-
2 eggs
125mls cream
1 cup of self raising flour
3/4 cup caster sugar
tspn vanilla
I added one cup of coconut

Mix all  this together place in cupcake casing and bake in a 180 degree C oven for 15-20mins.
I added lemon, coconut and cream cheese icing to the cupcakes when they cooled.
