I sat up until 1am doing them.
But it was worth it, I think they turned out adorable!!
I'm going to Japan tomorrow for 2 weeks - is it lame that one of the things I'm most concerned about is missing out on 2 weeks of food blogs?? I'll have alot to catch up on when I get back, that's for sure!!
BYE FOR NOW!!

Sorry this has taken so long.
Delicious, sweet, creamy, chocolatey dessert.
My mouth is watering just typing those words.
You see, I'm on a diet at the moment and I'm eating hardly any junk food at all.
It's been ok for the past 2 weeks. But tonight, I've hit this point where all I can think about is chocolate. And cake. And ice cream. And lollies. I don't think watching tonight's biggest loser temptation is helping either. A room full of food, including a chocolate fountain? Died and gone to heaven!
Anyway, a dessert from times when I didn't care so much about my figure:

I have been coveting these silicone teacup moulds by Fred Worldwide for quite a while now. Unfortunately, they aren't in stock at their online stockists, and the ones that DO have them in stock, don't post to Australia. COME ON INTERNET SELLERS, get with the times, who doesn't post to Australia these days?? And another thing that I'd like to have a little gripe about - some of those companies that DO grace Australia with their shipping charge a mint. Unlike Amazon. Amazon, oh Amazon, apple of my eye......
Cupcakes in a tea cup??
I found these little babies at Chalet, stockist of all things cute and kitsch for the kitchen. I literally pushed my boyfriend out of the way when I saw the pink box sitting on the stand. There was no "oh I can't afford it" or "I don't need it, maybe another day". I picked that box up and held it like it was a pot of gold. I didn't even look at the price (which was $19.95 btw), I just paid and left feeling rather satisfied.
And now it's 10.38pm and I have finished baking and icing my four teacupcakes.....behold:

This weekend just gone I made an engagement cake.
A three tier engagement cake.
I have a confession to make:
I've never made a three tier cake before now. Enter freakout zone.
I think I did pretty well for someone who has never made a three tier cake before - there was a near disaster between the cake and my mother in the car on the drive there, but let's not talk about that ok??
Chocolate bottom, white chocolate middle & caramel top:
