As it’s Halloween season, it seemed only right to do a bit of seasonal baking! Of course I always do, whether it’s shortbread, or cake! This year I thought I’d make some scary good chocolate cupcakes! Just to do something a little bit different!
The biggest change here was the frosting, which wasn’t remotely complicated!

I thought I’d share something a little different this year, and throw in one for the grown-ups; with some fun Christmas Cocktails!

These fab Christmas Cocktails, can all be made fairly easily, with ingredients you may even already have at home!

I wanted to do something a little different this month, and share some fab indie biz. It’s fairly officially Christmas shopping season, and it’s a great opportunity to support small business; shop indie; and spread a little love to those that may be struggling; as there are no craft fairs or the like this year!
So here are a range of some of the handmade products from some of my friends online! If you have a small business, get in touch and I’ll happily add you to the list! Please don’t link spam; if you have a gift guide similar to this one, do tell everyone about it in the comments below!

I’m no stranger to Halloween baking, as I do something every year, but this year I thought I would do something a little different, and bake a cake!
We don’t need an excuse for cake in our house in all honesty, so I thought it would be fun, to make something tasty, sweet and Halloween themed, basically so I could blog about it this month.

Is there anything more autumnal than visiting a pumpkin patch? While it’s a little early to be picking up a pumpkin; this weekend we headed to a local pick-your-own for some autumn fruit picking!
It’s been a while since either of us have been fruit picking, but we thought, why not! A nice excuse for some fresh air, and exercise, and a bit of fun!

I’m so excited to share this post. Writing it has been done on a bit of a high, since we returned! So this is possibly the biggest thing we’ve done this year: Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary!
This is the second time we’ve been to Disneyland Paris together. We visited two years ago; and we just had to come back; as a lot was closed for refurbishment when we visited last time. Also because it’s the anniversary! How fun is that!
