I have been admiring the Kuhn Rikon icing utensils for ages (late night shopping channels when up with a poorly baby or early morning TV infomertials when same baby misunderstands the concept of a lay-in) but I have just never felt I could justify that much expense to make already perfectly tasty cupcakes look pretty. Then today when out shopping for a "foundation garment" (that's a story for another day) I stumbled across this lovely set;

In The Works (you know, the cheapy book shop) for just £3.99!!! I was a happy girl. It looks almost identical to the Kuhn one and was really easy to use and clean. I do need to go visit youtube and learn how to make spectacular cupcakes, I mostly just squirt randomly and hope for prettiness. Not nearly as pretty as Emma's new creations but yummy none the less.

I think I may have to have a practise with my camera too as the focus here seems to be the case when I had been aiming for clarity on the icing, nevermind, you get the picture;

And because I just couldn't resisit sharing these (am sure he's too small to be horrified at his nakedness in public), some baby caring au natural;

Hope you're all having a splendid saturday?

I picked up a random icing equipment set a few years ago from TK Maxx, with a giant plunger thing that looks like an artificial inseminator for cows.

Now I mostly use my Tala icing bag with it's many "noses". I feel much less like a farmer when I use that!!

Thanks for coming to visit my blog, btw. :)
