Challenge 111... Happy Hour!

Morning Everyone. What better way to start the week than with a Cupcake?!

October. Already. Not funny. Even scarier is how fast we are hurtling towards the end of another year! The good thing about all this dreary weather (if you have dreary weather where you are when you read this, that is, if not, pretend!) is you have the perfickt excuse to snuggle down with a lovely mug of hot choklit, laced with naughtiness and coated in gooey marshmallows! Ooooh yummy!

Thank you so much for playing along with us last week. We hope you had as much fun with our Cupcake Colour Combo as we did. Your creations were gorgeous and I had a really hard job picking my Top 5!

We have a new sponsor for Cupcake Madness this week too. All you need to do for a chance to win is enter at least two different Cupcake challenges within a calendar month… easy peesy!

This week, the very lovely Denise (she’s a bit of a fox, that one!) has chosen our theme. I gave you a little clue when I was muttering about tipsy hot choklits...

***Happy Hour ***

We’d like to see you creating something to do with drinks. Just make sure you sip whatever you’ve used to inspire you after you’ve finished playing, otherwise things are going to get P.Retty messy!

You have until Sunday 10 October… 8pm GMT to place your entry for this challenge.


It’s a busy week for prizes today as we have a winner for last weeks sponsored challenge, September’s Cupcake Madness winner and we’ve also chosen our Top 5...
