Picnic Cupcakes
We decided to make the most of the freakishly hot British weather this weekend and take a trip to Carsington Reservoir for a sunny picnic. As well as taking some lovely ham and turkey sandwiches, I decided to make some summer picnic cupcakes.

I used bright icing with some spectacular brightly coloured decoration balls. I made a basic vanilla sponge cupcake with a vanilla buttercream icing but the overalll effect of the colours and the decoration makes them look rather more exciting and picnic-fied!

Overall a good day was had by all however, I am now nursing some very sore sunburn...ouch!
