Mother's Day aka the eternal question of what to get for Mum

Hello my lovelies! So, I have FINALLY managed to get round to making up a box of yummy cupcake treats that are sure to tickle your Mum's fancy this Mothering Sunday.

This is truly a box full of love. Lemony love to be precise. The cupcakes pictured are all lemon flavoured topped with vanilla lemon buttercream but they can come in any cake flavour (as long as all 9 are the same). I wanted to create a box which summed up the recent springtime weather so we've gone with some nice brights and flowers.

This box is £22 delivered to any NG postcode and can include the personal message of your choice. The only caveat being that these little beauties are only available to order until 12 March. My family are treating me to a little weekend getaway on 13/14 March so although I always try to offer delivery on seasonal holidays (even delivering on Valentines day this year!) these boxes will only be available for collection/delivery until 12 March 2010.

We make all our cupcakes fresh and as they are all extra moist they will last fine until Sunday but why not give your Mum an early treat? With 9 cupcakes in the box there might even be some to share...


  1. These look lovely, I really like that orange colour and I wish I knew how to get the icing to look like roses.

  2. Thanks Sarah, the roses are made using a Wilton 2D icing tip. I think one of the key things is to ensure your frosting isn't too runny or else the rose loses its shape once piped. Then start piping in the middle and swirl outwards. I like to finish mine with a little flower or similar decoration to cover any ragged edges.

    Hope that helps!

  3. Very very nice, my mum loves lemon and yellow too, this could be a great idea!!!
    thanx :)

  4. Thanks for the comment Alice, glad you like them!

  5. I really love the way your frosting looks like a rose! Very lovely.

  6. Thank you! The rose swirl is proving really popular right now and I love experimenting with new bright colours in this style.
