Cup o' cake love??

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......

Anyway....moving on.

Tea cups.


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:


$19.95 for a box of four - my only problem is that I want to go back and buy 2 more boxes so I can have a set of twelve, but this time it IS "do I really need them?"!!. Think of how awesome these would be at a tea party!! And if they did them in different colours (they're only available in white atm) and imagine if they had a teapot that you could bake a BIG cake in!! This all seems very appropriate for today as I saw Alice in Wonderland in 3D with the boyfriend - I think it's an awesome movie, well worth it and defo go see it in 3D!! Oh Jonny Depp you amazing piece of man!!
