Winter warmers

Brrrr, it's so cold outside at the moment and I'm feeling a little run down (I have a sore throat) so I think another batch of cupcakes is in order. What do you reckon?

I have some cute colourful chocolate drops to decorate them with and I might even go as far as turning them into butterflies! My Mum used to make these all the time (okay, not quite all the time but you know what I mean) when I was little! :-)

I hope everyone is having a good week so far, sorry if I haven’t visited you for a while, I’ve been quite busy recently but I’m looking forward to catching up soon!

I just want to say as well that I really appreciate all your lovely comments (when they appear, lol, thanks Blogger!), suggestions and advice that you’ve been giving me and a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who is following!! It really makes my day and I’m so happy to have found so many other peeps interested in the same things as me! :-D

Have a lovely day!


  1. I wish you could send me some cupcakes! It is so hot here right now, but cupcakes are good anytime of the year!!

  2. Yummm tea and cupcakes....hope they make you feel better and keep warm Anna.

  3. That's a really lovely photo. And cupcakes cornflake? Hell yes!

  4. I only found out about your blog two weeks ago and it's already one of my favs! Thanks again for all your inspiration!

  5. Hang in there. I hope you're feeling better soon...a sore throat can be so yucky. I think a cupcake or two is definitely necessary. If it makes you feel any better at all it has been so cold in California the heat has turned on all by itself for the past 5 days straight. I'm wearing my winter wardrobe! In JULY.


  6. Yum, post a pic of them when they're done! No worries, re following etc I love reading your blog! I hope everything settles down soon and your sore throat goes away. Rest up dear!

  7. I'm so with you on the feeling cold! I'm also in the southern hemisphere, and we are freezing here. Hoping our pipes don't freeze again tonight! Cupcakes are a gift to be enjoyed. I must certainly say go for it!!! Yum.

  8. Mmm CUPCAKES, I was just thinking about making some too! I know how you are feeling, I've taken the day off work because I have been feeling so rundown and have the whole sore throat thing happening!! GAH... WINTER!! :) Hazel

  9. Lucky for all my friends and family my sore throat turned out to be laringitis. They all think its the funniest joke ever....well I will show them I won't stop when it comes back cos I will have saved up so much info....
    Anyway...I just had a lemon crunble cupcake was I say go for it.

  10. Oh dear cupcake, how I need you so! Totally understand the being so busy and feeling run down. I've missed a whole week of everyone's bloggy goodness. Hope your throat feels better soon... I know a cupcake or three will definitely help. :)
