What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…

Spring Cupcakes… and yes you really can do what you find on Pinterest

I have some friends who are always impressed with my baked goods. Sometimes I think it’s just the sugar content, but sometimes I actually get things right. The trouble with getting the taste right, is they also expect you to get the decoration right. If you’ve ever seen my attempt at a stick figure, you’ll know I’m no art major, but when friends asked me to do a Spring cupcake night I accepted the challenge. (I know it’s almost Summer – I’m a bit behind =p)

First things first – ask Uncle Google. I used Google images to find my favourites, printed them out and then guessed at the various things used to make them. I avoided cupcakes that looked like sculpted fondant. I’ve told you about my stick figure skills, right? Instead I focused on cupcakes that used candy in interesting ways and worked on my copying skills. Here’s the result. What do you think?
