Fancy pants cupcakes

Today was `family feast' day. Held at our parents' place once a month, it's hopefully the beginning of a wonderful tradition, bringing us all back to the table together to share great food, wine and conversation. When we try to suss out the menu in advance, Mum always replies that "it's not about the food, it's about the company". Sure, the company is wonderful, but bottom line is our Mum is a great cook and well, frankly, it's an awful lot about the food!

Anyway, the day always ends with cupcakes - the kids count on it! Today's cupcakes got a little dressed up for the occasion (probably to honour the arrival of the new coffee machine). Don't you just love what they're wearing? Donna Hay's fancy baking papers and sugar pearls in the sweetest shades of pink, chocolate and aqua. Donna aptly calls her range `bling for baking' - love it! We found ours at David Jones, but our favourite online baking store, Little Betsy Baker, is stocking them and if you're in Sydney check out the Donna Hay General Store in Woollahra.

Thanks Mum (and Dad, the wine waiter) for another memorable `family feast'. So what's on the menu next month?

Oh they look so good. Doesn't Donna Hay have the best stuff. I just purchased a heap of her platters at 40% at DJ's. Simple and stylish. Love it.
Glad you had such a nice family feast.
