Pasta and Cupcakes

Now to let you out of your misery.

This .......
......... is a spaghetti measurer!

Adjust the aperture for one, two, three or four servings and measure your spaghetti by inserting it in the hole! No more oversized portions!

Well, today is Speech Day, which means daughter and I have the morning off so we've made flower and butterfly cupcakes as presents for her teachers:



some for my department:



plus a few extra for us:




Not thinking about this today .........

See this is why i am buying a new house so that I can have a new kitchen large enough to store gadgets like spahetti measurers! does it matter that my husband won't eat spaghetti?
Where do you buy your cake decorations?

If there are any left, could you FedEx them over to Lincolnshire please?

I'm also having a "not thinking about the waistline" day. The kids wanted cookies so we baked cookies. I can't ignore them. The cookies want to be eaten, so eat them I will.

Helen - I made the decorations! But the cutters, florist wire and other bits and bobs I used are from a brilliant cake shop near me and from www.cakescookiescraftsshop.co.uk. Now, why won't he eat spaghetti?

The Dotterel - I'm sure you could knock up a batch of these yourself with your talents!

Kirsty - I try and kid myself that homebaked cakes and cookies are better because there are none of those horrid chemicals and hydrogenated thingies. Tell me I'm right!

Working Mum said...

Thanks for resolving the mystery implement!
And those cupcakes look amazing. As everyone before has said, you truly have a talent.
And I am so impressed by your weight-loss chart. Mine (hidden away on Wii Fit) isn't looking quite so impressive... Well done - and keep it up!
