Even though I'd decided to keep this blog strictly about baking, I was so excited about this that I had to share... and I've managed to put a baking spin on it, too.
This week, my boyfriend and I found our first home! So, as long as our rental application goes through OK, we'll be moving to Frodsham, Cheshire in a few weeks' time. I can't wait! A big part of the excitement comes from finally having a kitchen of my own. I've only ever lived at home, or in shared uni accommodation and so I really can't wait to have a kitchen that I don't have to share with anyone (because I don't think Mike is going to spend much time in there, apart from when he does the washing up, of course!). Hopefully this also means that I'll be able to bake a lot more, too.
It's difficult to know how much stuff to share about myself on my blog. When I first started it, I wanted to keep it fairly anonymous, and pretty much baking only. But I want to appear friendly, too - especially as I'm reading and commenting on other people's blogs - seems odd to read about and comment on other people's lives, without really sharing much about myself.
Anyway, it's something I'll have to give a bit more thought to, I guess. But for now, here's some coffee cupcakes I made last week for a friend. I was quite pleased with them, especially the coffee buttercream! The lighting was really bad though, so I didn't get any decent photos at all, but I thought the gingerbread man decorations that I found in Lakeland were too cute not to share!
