My Birthday Tea

As part of my New Year's resolution to work smarter and enjoy more social time, I decided to host a Morning Tea for my birthday and spent some girly time with some blogger friends.

It was nothing too fancy but I did make cupcakes for the first time ever! I was so happy with how they turned out even though some may criticise my decorating skills.

You can try the same Orange Cupcake recipe here along with the Orange Icing recipe.


Thank you to the lovely company of Jane Hopkins, Marie Dillon-Krech and Keren Brown. They are just a tad excited here as they all got to take home a couple of linen napkins each that I printed for the occasion.

The ever vivacious Katherine Smith, Emma Gascoyne and Jennie McClelland plus their adorable kiddies.

Jennie made the best banana bread and Elessa, my girl, made traditional cucumber sandwiches with cream cheese and dill. So good!

This is the bottom of the cupcake wrapper with the tabs folded over and glued. The sides were stapled for extra strength. See my previous post for the free download. I would suggest that you make them ahead of time though because they were a little time-consuming.

Thanks to all my lovely guests. I had the best birthday! What a difference to last year's when the city had flooded the day before and Voyt had been rushed to hospital that same night. I'm looking forward to more tea times.
