Cupboard Bakery

Last week we had cake, this week I thought I'd try some tart. Turned out OK, what do you think?

My walk in robe is looking more like a bakery than a cupboard, it's now got cake and tart and I also have some cupcakes in there as well:)

For anyone new reading this, it's OK; I don't really hide bakery goodies in my cupboard, just my newest soap additions.

Oh, and a few chocolates, can't forget the chocolates, yep, have some of those in there too, but these really are edible ones. Just a few left of my Valentines pressie and very sadly they are just about gone but probably just as well.

I've been known to hide chocolates in my cupboard on the rare occasion:) especially Easter Eggs. Now they have to go in the cupboard, because if I leave them in the fridge they are too much temptation for not only me but everyone else, to keep eating until it's all gone and I really do like to TRY and make them last as long as is possible.

At least I can't put weight on with the soap cakes and tarts:)

Cake anyone?

I wanted to do something a little bit different, so a few weeks ago I decided to try my hand at baking, well sort of, this is something my teenage son isn’t going to want to eat:D
I must admit, it does look tempting.

I had to hide it because he said to me after I made my last batch of bath bomb cupcakes “Mum, when are you going to make something we can actually eat?” My poor baby, so this one’s been hiding so he wasn’t disappointed once again.

So now every time I make soap, soap cakes or cupcakes, I have to make sure I make something good for him to eat as well.

Makes it very hard trying to keep my weight off, but a Mums got to do, what a Mums got to do:)

I thought it was time for a change for one of my soaps, I think it was looking a little bit tired and boring, so Nature's Garden has had a face lift. The one above is the old Nature's Garden

The one below is the new look Nature's Garden. Now I'm not too sure if I'm still really happy with it, it might have to have another bit of a change next batch I make:) A work in progress! What do you think?

First Sunday Club

You might remember last month I mentioned the First Sunday Club. This is where Rebecca Sparrow from the Sunday Mail names a cause that could really do with our help, all we have to do is donate a little $10 once a month.

This month the cause is Street Swags. Brisbane school teacher Jean Madden is on a one-woman crusade to help some of Australia's homeless.

I find it really sad that Australia has homeless people, but there are at least 100,000 Australians sleeping on the streets every night. So if you can spare just $10 to help this great cause, you can donate here. Come on everyone, $10 once a month, most of us can afford that, donate now and you could be helping someone else sleep a little easier tonight.
