That time of the week already- time to party! Thanks Jenn for hosting.
I chose Saturday as my day, which was super exciting as I went on a cake decorating course.
Soya yoghurt, rude health muesli, apple from my garden and a fig.
Snack– a small slice of marble cake at the decorating course- they were quite insistent on us eating!
Rye bread with pb, and DCD, and a pear from Andy’s parents garden. Loving the garden produce today.
Cocoa mint Lara bar from my blog swap with Errign. It was nice, but I think that our UK nakd bars are better. 🙂
Butternut squash and goats cheese wrap– this time I added chilli flakes when I cooked the squash, and also some spinach to the wrap.
It was super tasty 🙂
One of the cakes I decorated! Can you guess which one I ate?
(They were little fairy cakes just covered in a lot of icing).
I went for…
I did give Andy one of the roses though- super sweet! 🙂 I am going to choose it as my favourite even though I did not really want to eat it- I wanted to just look at it!
Have you ever been to a course like that before?
Also- added on final question- beyond dark have asked for flavour ideas on facebook- I said chocolate mint and peanut butter! Any other ideas?

Girl, you have got some serious decorating skills! I love those cakes!
Those fresh figs in your breakfast look so tasty, I wish I had access to fresh figs here. Those we import in the Czech Republic always look a bit “off” 🙁
Those cakes are stunning! I would have eaten that one too!! 🙂 I’ve never been to a course. Maybe one day x
I’ve never done a course like that but my Mam did and loved it! I would really love to do a raw food course – in fact I might make that happen for my 30th Birthday next year! That cake looks some amazing, I bet it was delicious 🙂
That sounds fun too 🙂
Your cake decorating course sounded like so much fun! I’d love to do something like that 🙂
Also, your wrap looks so delish… I’m noting down those ingredients as I can sense that meal is going to make an appearance in my kitchen very soon!
Good it was really tasty! I need to update my recipes page too- a job for half term I think 🙂
Wow I had no idea you could decorate so well! Those are stunning 🙂
I had no idea you decorate like that! Those are stunning 🙂 Almost too good to eat…almost!
I definitely think the nakd bars are better than the jocolat ones! They’re my least favorite, but I tried to just grab a variety 🙂
Oh yes I was not complaining at all- I was loving trying all the new ones 🙂
Those cakes look lovely. So pretty! 🙂
Aww, you ate my favourite cake! Joking – it is too pretty to demolish though, although I’m sure I could ‘manage’ to if I really had to 😉
Looks like such a yummy lunch too 🙂
I have never been on a course like that but I would absolutely love to – anything arty/creative appeals to me. I wouldn’t want to go alone though – it would be too awkward – and sadly I am a bit of a Billy no-mates!
Do you know my friend came with me this time, but a few people were on their own and I would not hesitate to go alone to something like that next time- so I would say give it a go 🙂
I was a bit sad when they got eaten (I only had 1!) but I do have the photos to remember it by!
Okay now please tell me. What on earth does a raw fig taste like. I love love them dried, but haven’t been brave enough to try them regular. Enlighten me.
You’re impressive with those cakes. Make a business!
I am not sure how to describe fresh figs- they are sort of sweet, but earthy- when you cook them they get sweeter.
I love the sounds of that squash and goats cheese wrap – yummy!
Those cupcakes are so beautiful – I’m seriously impressed by people who can decorate cakes and do sugar craft.
Well I think I learned the most basic of basic things, but that is the step up from the splodge of icing/ using cookie cutters for shapes that I was on before!
Your cupcakes are gorgeous!!
I love your eats!! That fresh fig is calling my name…I’ve never had a fresh one before, but I really want to now!
And those cakes are SO PRETTY! That sounds like such a fun course, and you’re clearly very good at it! 🙂
You should totally try a fresh one, I bet you will love it!
Everything looks tasty and everything is better with a fig!
Thanks- and love the blog name! 🙂
Wow!! the cakes looks amazing! So pretty:D
I’d love to attend one of those classes but never find the time to do so!
This one was on a Saturday luckily- most of them are while I am at work too.
Wow, sounds like a great idea to make new flavours – I’d second peanut butter and maybe caramel or dried fruit, they’d be delicious!
I love your cupcakes… I’ve never done a course but I made some sugar roses for my goddaughter’s first birthday cake in the summer and was so proud of them!
That fig looks delicious too, I’ve never had a fresh one but saw some of offer in Asda the other day – might have to give them a go 🙂
Go for it 🙂
Beautiful Cakes….I can see lots of decorated cupcake posts in the future! You didn’t do any ‘running’ ones though! You could make lots, photograph them and create yourself a new blog header!
Hey nice cakes! What brand of food colouring did you use for the green tops of the cakes? Was it Wilton by any chance?
No it was Sugarflair- I used “melon” and “navy”in varying amounts to make all the colours.
