So today I decided to don my apron (it's flowery may I add!) and make some cupcakes! I used a recipe from the Nigella Lawson website, and I think they turned out quite nicely, if I do say so myself! But I still haven't mastered a way of getting flat topped cupcakes, as mine always peak :( I then iced them and instead of using the royal icing that Nigella suggests I made my own using icing sugar and lemon juice. I then added food colouring (yes they were supposed to be jubilee colours i.e red, blue and white), however I was too lazy to make up a new batch of icing after I stupidly added all the red food colouring to my mix so they ended up pink and purple! I guess they still look nice but not very jubille-esque.
I then decided to do my nails (creative I know ;) ) so I stuck on my fake nails and painted them with an OPI nail polish called 'My Private Jet' that I got from a car boot a bit ago.
