This blog has been neglected for far too long. Unfortunately living in Real Life means that baking comes secondary to my job and the like.

I’ve made vanilla cupcakes for my friend’s birthday using Bluebell’s Cakery recipe.

I was struggling to use my heart stencil to create a defined heart on the buttercream. I tried using hundreds and thousands to no avail but then I had a stroke of genius and mixed petal powder with sugar and tapped it out onto the stencil.
