Crafting on a tiny island...

So, please excuse my squee-ness of a first crafty(ish) post, but I was so psyched that I finally got to decorate something for a birthday Cheesy

For my boyfriend's lucky birthday I decided to pack up a surprise picnic for the late evening, just for the two of us. I knew that a cake would be difficult to carry to the beach we were going to, so I finally decided on lemon cupcakes (which were amazing, which means that I HAD to lose the recipe for them Sad). Loooong story short, my boy loved the cupcakes and the way they were decorated (he doesn't understand how amateurly they were, but shhh Wink).

Basically, I just used liquid food colouring (all I had, I've heard it's better to use gel though, and I believe it!) to colour store-bought marzipan, which ended up being as sticky as heck.

Anyway, on to the pictures:

Thanks everyone Cheesy I know they're very amateur and cartoon-ey, but at least making them (and your comments) have encouraged me to try again Smiley
