Mothers day

Been baking for mothers day ......

My first attempt at a giant cupcake and i am very pleased with thefinished look. I even made the flowers and leaves myself from fondant icing.


My mum was so surprised when I took the cake round to her and it tasted very nice. I flavored the sponge with lemon and sandwiched it together with vanilla buttercream and lemon curd. The bottom part is covered in white chocolate fingers.

I also baked some cupcakes and decorated them with shades of pink buttercream. My husband took a box round to his mum...I hope she likes them 

I think mothers day should be celebrated as us mums play such an important role in family life. We can  be under appreciated and taken for granted at times!! Our partners don't always realise how hard it can be juggling with bringing up a family and working at the same time. My husband only said a few weeks ago that it is me that holds our family together and keeps everything running smoothly. I take that as a complement and wish he would say it more often!! 

I am so lucky to have my mum nearby as she means so much to me and I would be lost without her. My dad past away over 10 years ago which was hard and since then I feel much closer to my mum. She is always there to listen to me and offer advice and help. I hope my two children feel the same way about me. 

I hope all you mums out there have  lovely day today xxxxxx
