Cupcake 123... White is White!

Morning, morning, morning and Happy New Year to you all! We hope you had a wonderful festive break and you got lots of naughty stash…? So, are you sick of choklit yet? Have you broken any of your New Year Resolutions?! Are you desperate to get back to normality? Well, have a little play with us first, hey?! ;)

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in with our Thank You Challenge, you kept us busy with all your wonderful creations and it seemed a fitting end to the year. We hope you will continue to have fun with us throughout 2011.

Talking of continued fun, I am delighted to be able to tell you that Delphine has agreed to join the DT on a permanent basis. I can't wait to see what she gets up to!

As it’s the first challenge of the year, we thought we’d tell you about our Icing on the Cupcake! If you enter any challenge in a calendar month, you’ll have a chance of winning our weekly sponsored prize, as usual. The Icing on the Cupcake is that you will automatically get a chance to win our randomly drawn, sponsored prize at the end of the month too. :)

And don’t forget, if you were a Top 5 winner in December; watch your inbox over the next few weeks as you could be joining us as a Guest Cupcake in February…

Well, now I’ve told you about all that, let’s get on with it!

This week, our delicious French friend, Catherine La Chic, has chosen the challenge:

***White is White ***

You can use other colours if you wish, but your project must be predominantly white.

You have until Sunday 09 January… 8pm GMT to place your entry for this challenge. Have fun!
