Weekend Baking

So I ordered at the start of this week a set of Bundle Monster stamping plates, the Konad stamping tool, and special black polish. My plates are here, but I'm still waiting on the actual stamp and polish! I know that if I just take off my bumble bee nails and do something different, the postman will knock on the door the minute after, so I'm trying to be patient.

It was my birthday last week and one of the girls at work gave me this cookbook, which is amazing. It's filled with so many different goodies that I spent the whole morning just planning what to bake first.

As I write this now there's some kind of baking show on the TV so I absolutely can't wait to get stuck in! We have a new girl starting at the office on Monday morning so today I'm going to pick up some ingredients and do some baking on Sunday morning.

I've spent the whole morning so far with the boyfriend trying to decide which to bake, I think he wanted me to bake the whole book! I told him that whatever I choose, he has to help with the whisking, because I'm really rubbish at that, and he agreed as long as I saved him some cakes!
And this is what I've chosen to bake...cola cupcakes! I'm not the greatest cook in the world so thankfully these don't look too hard to make. The recipe does ask for cola syrup though, and as far as I'm aware that's the stuff you put in a soda stream machine, right?

Well I'm not buying a 1ltr bottle just for a few cakes! I plan to be creative and put actual cola in the mixture instead, I've seen other recipes where you do this so it can't be that much of a disaster...right?

I'm sorry this isn't really nails or beauty themed, but once I;ve got my stamping kit I'll show you my first attempts, I'm very excited!

Wish me luck that these cakes will turn out to actually be edible when I make them tomorrow?


  1. Did you bake them? Would love to know how they turned out if you did! I do have great intentions and then end up making rice krispie buns :D x

  2. I did! Am just about to do a new post and I'll put a picture in :)
    I'm forever saying 'I'm going to bake this weekend!' but I never do in the end. Can't beat a good rice krispie cake though :D x
