I have been a bit slack in the cupcake baking department. For the entirety of September, I only baked one batch! Gasp! I didn't even do a cupcakes for charity sale, which I feel SO guilty about.
The only cupcakes I made were for my Grandpa's 90th Birthday party. Family came from interstate for this occasion, as it was a pretty huge milestone, especially because Grandpa had pulled through after major surgery for bowel cancer earlier this year.
One of my childhood memories of my Grandpa was, he ALWAYS had a peppermint lifesaver in his mouth! So I wanted to do peppermint cupcakes, and a couple of days before the party I came across a perfect recipe on Nigella Lawsons website called "The naughty senator's peppermint and chocolate rum marble cake" Perfect!!
I have been working steadily on my first granny square blanket over the weekend, it's totally going to be finished just in time for summer, silly procrastinating me! To break up the project a bit, I worked on crocheting a pillow cover for my craft chair, and was very happy to finish it within a week:
My kitty Týr loves it!
Hope you are all off to a good start for the week. I am really enjoying the warmer weather, but annoyingly feel like I am coming down with a cold, it could be hayfever though . Lots of water and rest for me!
