Actually, this post contains nothing about Easter or eggs . I have been making some nice spring-like rhubarb and custard cupcakes though. The recipe was from my favourite Love Bakery cupcake book (but I did change the frosting a bit to make it more custardy – I love, love, love custard). They were delicious, even if I do say so myself:
On the beading front, I’ve still not finished my red crystal and pearl bracelet – I need a gold coloured magnetic clasp for it and don’t have one, so will pick one up at Bead & Banter at The Bead Shop Edinburgh next week. I went to my first Bead & Banter earlier this month with Lesley, Sigrid & Mary, and muchos fun it was too. I didn’;t buy much when I was there, as I’m trying to be good, but a huge square green stone, green fire polished rounds and dark silver size 15 seedies managed to fall into my basket somehow.
I have an idea in my head of how I want the finished piece to look – so far it’s all coming together quite nicely, but will have to play it by ear a bit I suppose. I’m also using up some stash, as the delicas have sat around unused for about 18 months to 2 years.
I’ve actually progressed a bit from this photo, so will post an update with my next post.
Hope you all had a fab easter.
