Back duing the half term school holidays at the end of October I held some simple fun cupcake workshops for children.

We started off the session by decorating the boxes they were to take the cupcakes home in with pens & stickers, then each child had 2 vanilla cupcakes which they could decorate at their own leisure with a selection of seasonal sweets and decoartions. Tools, cutters & moulds were available for those that wanted to make their own decorations.

On this occasion there were 2 groups both of which were brilliant. Due to the session being more about having fun and basically decorating the cupcake however they wish, it's really lovely to see how their imaginations work when free to do their own thing.

These short workshops are usually held at seasonal times throught the year, please contact me or see the website for more details.

I’m one of six siblings and when it comes to gifts for Dad we always hit the same stumbling block. “Oh, don’t waste your money on me” is the usual response to our enquiries of what he might like.

The trouble is that Dad doesn’t really need any presents like socks or beer. The one thing he really wants is his family around him. So for birthdays, Christmas and Fathers Day we all get together and visit him and he’s in his element!

The one thing we can do is to take food to share and, of course, that always includes cake. Dad’s favourite cake is chocolate drip cake covered in all the chocolates he enjoys and it always goes down well with the rest of the family too.

As we’re a big family it always warrants a big cake (nobody ever turns down cake) but if it’s just you and your Dad you could scale it down to a couple of cupcakes or even just a small cake. It’s always a welcome gift and a little personalisation goes a long way. Choose Dad’s favourite flavor and add a personal message, it’s sure to bring a tear to his eye.

So, for this special day treat Dad to a special cake that shows that you’ve gone the extra mile and leave the socks on the shelf!
