The best part about making cupcakes is making them look pretty! Play around with different colour icings and sugar decorations and amaze all your friends by serving them at your next book club or tea party.
Buy or bake crunchies with dark chocolate icing and tie lace around two or three. This would work well as a small gift for someone to say thank-you or get better soon. Easy and tasty!
This is a refreshing change from plain old water. Simply clean and cut a few strawberries lengthways and place in a jug of water. Eventually the water will develop a slight strawberry taste. This can be done with apples, lemons and various other fruits too.
Collect some used food tins, clean them out and paint the outside with a colour of your choice. Buy some small plants from the nursery and pot them in the tins and place name cards on each on. A fresh, simple and elegant name placement.
For this idea you need the right vase – a small rectangular, shallow vase. Place white pebbles on the botton and fill with enough water to cover the pebbles. Place long slender leaves in each vase (facing the same way) for a beautiful effect.
This is a great idea for a tea party. You need teaspoons and at least three flavours of cooking chocolate. Melt the different flavours separately and dip the ends of the spoons into the chocolate, creating patterns with the different flavours.
This is a great accompaniment to the chocolate teaspoons. Serve cupcakes with pink butter icing and decorate with hearts made out of sugar icing. Cute and scrumptious – perfect for a ladies tea party.
Try and find these mini badges at a stationery store or Cardies. Select something different for each person, something that reflects their personality, and attach to a name card. These will also act as fun conversation pieces.
Wrap biltong snapsticks in an African looking ribbon (such as the Zebra print below) and serve as snacks. This is ideal for a bush/safari type menu. You can even serve the biltong together with dried fruit and nuts.
