Cake decorating

I can not call myself a master cake decorator, and unfortunately, I can not bake cakes every day to practise on. I´ve been trying to decorate on the table, and wipe it out, but it just don´t feel right! I don´t like pretending.... But, even though the decorating could be better, I know that they taste great!!

Materials used:
  • The best vanilla cupcake recipe from Martha Stuart
  • IMBC - Italian Meringue Butter Cream frosting - The best ever! From Louise over at Cake Journal
  • Jumbo Sprinkles, Wilton
  • The best and easiest ever brownie cookie recipe from Smitten Kitchen
  • Royal Icing


Messy crafting space

The title says it all... Maybe its all the mess that blocks my head?? The room is usually the sewing room (read: junk room). Everything gets stored in here, but while I´m ill, and living at home, this has become my space. It´s still covered in loads of junk, but I´m trying not to look at it. I´ve got this great table that I got from the council. It has this electric height adjustment, so that I can use it both standing and sitting. This really helps when I´m in pain, because I can vary my working position. It is also great for fishing dogs from under the table....

Rolf is wondering where to place his feet in all my mess....
