THANK YOU cupcake!!!!

Aren't they pweddy!

Aah what an awesome day. Spent expressing myself artistically. If anything, today confirmed what an awesome team my sissy and I make! So the girls cupcakes and cards are done…and they will be carting them off to school tomorrow.

The product!
Their cards...they had such a ball making these

Things you will need for these gorgeous cupcakes. (They cost effective AND delicious…they take a Lil time… it would probably be easier to order them…but as I say…nothing that’s easy is ever worth it😆)

So this is what you will need:

● cup cake mix( snow flake)
● 4 eggs
● 300ML Oil
● 1 cup water
● 1 cup milk
● icing suger ( pre-mix one is perfect)
● MnM’s
● Marshmallows
● muffin tray
● Cup cake holders

Mix your wet ingredients first and then add to the dry ingredients. Spoon em and bake at 180degrees for 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool and vwala.

The batter
Line your tray

Thank you note
These were pretty much simple.

Things you’ll need:
● Tooth pics
● Card board
● project glue
● koki pens

You can cut out any shape you’d like…we did heart shapes. take the tip of the tooth pic and glue it to the back.  You can pretty much write any note fitting for whatever the occasion is.

We did these last night, soley for the glue to dry and for the tooth pics to stick nicely!

The " Thank you" notes

Once these are done and your cup cakes are nice and cooled. You can ice them!

Once iced, place into the cup cake holders, we got these:

Cup cake holders

Then place marshmallow onto your “thank you” note…and pop into the cup cake.

The product😆

You can decorate with smarties, 100’s and 1000’s, cherries, MnM’s, crushed chocs or biscuits…it really is your choice.

And there you have it!!! Perfectly presented cup cakes, made with love and loads of fun and it serves as a lovely art experience for the kids as well!!!!


They had a ball. We had a ball. The gift of giving and giving thoughtfully is a feeling that no words can explain!

Hope you guys enjoy, be sure to post your attempts or give other ideas.

Loves and kisses

Care for some portuguese peri peri prawns?


So we had planned a supper at one of my friends’ place. . . Just a few girls, nothing fancy… and we were all supposed to make a dish. So I figured I’d try this. . .we didn’t end up having it but I made it anyway and it was a hit at home ( My mother is quite the critique)

Winter is here n sometimes we need some kick a## food to keep us warm. Hope you guys enjoy.


1kg of prawns , preferably the ones for grilling.
200 g (3/4 cup) butter
10 ml (2 teaspoons) crushed garlic
30 ml (2 tablespoons) lemon juice
30 ml (2 tablespoons) peri-peri sauce (recipe below)
milled black pepper


50 g (1 1/2 ounces) red chillies, very finely chopped
5 cloves garlic, crushed
500 ml (2 cups) olive oil
The juice and zest of 1 small lemon
10 ml of paprika

Mix all of the ingredients for the Sauce together, and leave for an hour or up until a week refrigerated. The Sauce gets better overtime so always make sure to make this in advanced if you really wanna knock their socks off.☺

When you feel that the sauce is well matured then do the below:

Heat the butter gently and add the garlic and lemon juice. Don’t let the garlic burn. Add prawns and peri-peri sauce. (Shake first to make sure you get some of the chilli and garlic as well.)

Sizzle for 4-5 minutes, turning frequently, until cooked. Season with salt and pepper and tip into a warm serving bowl. Garnish, if you wish, with chopped fresh parsley.

#Tip1:  You can add the prawns to  the peri peri sauce and leave to marinate for 24 hours.
#Tip2: You could use this for chicken as well.
#Tip3: You can add more peri peri sauce if you want it to be saucier.

hope you guys enjoy 💋
