ok, sorry for the wait I finally have photos of my BEAUTIFUL goodies from VintageGrace.

First, a fantastic vintage hat



A lovely lily hair clip and some beautiful burlesque pasties



A better shot of the lovely pasties, which are sooo elegant! Plus they are PERFECT for one of my Burlesque acts



She wrote me a lovely message in this great card which is now sitting next to my bed with my vintage style phone



And finally, she drew me this lovely picture of me wearing the final item, a beautiful pair of black satin bloomers with pearl embelishments to match the pasties. So I tried to recreate her picture Cheesy Heres the portrait stuck up in my wardrobe with my other inspirational pics.



And me in the bloomers



Thank you VintageGrace for sending me such a perfect pin up package!

I wanted to put everything on it for the perfect tea party, on a pink theme! (hence no cucumber sammiches Wink )



So observe the tiny cookie, cupcake, strawberry merangue, french fancy, jam scone and cream, tea cup, a decorative rose and a spooon to nom it all with!

19  Super Simple Lavender Cupcakes in Dessert by midnight on: August 02, 2010 01:51:41 PM
After my first disastrous try at cupcakes (seriously, where can you go wrong? I'm sure only I could manage it!) I found this adorable idea for lavender cupcakes. The method was a little too complicated for me, so i made this simple version which worked like a dream, was easy as pie and tastes like a lovely garden! (in a good way!)




easy cupcake recipe:
5 oz (150g) Butter - softened
5 oz (150g) superfine (caster) sugar
6 oz (175g) self-raising flour
3 eggs
fresh lavender flowers (straight fom the garden if you've got 'em!) - about 14 stems should do.

First, as always, preheat the oven to 350oF/180oC

I pulled the flowers from the 4 or 5 stems of lavender and mixed them in with the caster sugar. Then all I did was beat the eggs, then mixed everything together by hand until it was smooth and creamy. I spooned the mixture into 12 buncases and popped in the oven for about 15 mins (or if you're like me, until they look about done! Wink ) Leave them to cool completely on a wire rack before icing.

For the icing, its an easy buttercream icing - just mixed 175g (6 oz) icing sugar and 75g (3oz) margerine - didn't add any milk or water as last time i did it went very wrong! This does make quite alot of icing, so you can afford to be generous when spooning it on! I added blue and red food colouring to it to get the right purple colour the swirled it with a teaspoon onto the cupcakes, adding a single lavender stem or sprinkling a few individual flowers for decoration.

I've never posted on this board before, so I'd love to know what you guys think Smiley
