Icing the cupcakes
I use plastic piping bags and do not snip the end of the bag until all the icing mixture is in and pushed down to the bottom, with the top of the bag twisted. This stops any icing coming out before you are absolutely ready and the bag doesn’t have any air pockets in the mixture.
Decorate your cupcakes in a circular motion, starting from the outside of the cake to the middle and finish the last pipe with a flourish for decoration. Apply any decorative raspberries now before the icing sets, and these can cover any small mistakes you make with the piping.
This is our journey, all of us. Our blog was born from the desire to do something together, to share with each other and with you.
We have been friends for seven years, and have already grown, uprooted, fallen in love, succeeded and failed, become a family and won and lost at many things during our friendship.
Our blog name is born out of the idea that as we approach the next stage in our lives we will be growing from blossoms to flourishing at whatever we set our minds to.
So, now on to the exciting stuff….and also the everyday stuff too. Neither of us are writers or particularly creative types so we are looking forward to the challenge this blog presents.
We’ll be sharing our lives, our upcoming projects and craft ideas. We’ll also be posting recommendations on places to visit, recipes & sharing photos, alongside beauty and fashion tips, personal stuff and anything else that comes along our way on this new journey! So, we hope you enjoy our blog, and would love to hear your comments. Give us time though, we’re new to this!
