Lurid cupcakes

There's no place for subtlety in the world of child-pleasing cupcakes. Bright is good, but lurid is better.

Cupcakes for Children in Need cake sale.

Mark had to go to school today, dressed as something he'd like to be when he grows up. Amidst a sea of firemen, pop stars, policemen and footballers, he stood out somewhat in his Daddy's tie. He's a Town Planner (I blame the Lego Corporation).

Oh, what a sweetie. I bet his dad was thrilled. Mine asked to go to the school non uniform day in a pair of socks I made for her - my heart just about exploded :-)

That is fantastic that he is so original. When I was 11 I won a scholarship to an exclusive private school. I had to go through a series of interviews and exams. I'm sure I was just like all the other candidates until we came to a question at the final interview with the headmistress. She asked what we wanted to be when we grew up. Each of the other finalists replied "horse trainer" or "horse vet" or horse something. I was the last to be asked and I said "I want to be an actress" This is back in the day when being an actress wasn't so much about being a celebrity. I'm sure that is the reason I was given the scholarship.

Good for him! Anyone can aspire to be a footballer/fireman etc but how special that he wants to be just like Dad :)

Town Planner, yes lego has got a lot to answer for. Good money in that job, but I'm sure lots of agrivation. I mean no one ever likes the proposed new roads, or car parks or shopping centeres proposed for their towns do they !

I love the colour of cup cakes paper. When exactly did we all start refering to them as cupcakes. Fairy cakes is what where when I was little, as I say to the kids. Yes I am starting to sound like my mother !
