Cupcake 124... Something New

Morning Cupcake Lovers! Have you all taken your Christmas decorations down? And does the space where they were look all bleak and drab? Not to worry, it’ll soon be Valentines Day! ;)

Wow! You loved La Chic’s White is White theme. Thank you so much for joining in, it was great to see all of your beautiful work. You made it very hard to pick a Top 5 again, you tinkers!

This week, Sassy Denise has chosen the theme:

***Something New ***

This could be a new job, new baby or new home project. Or maybe you got some scrummylicious new stash for Christmas which you’re itching to use and haven’t had a chance yet (be sure to tell us what it is though). Either way, we’d love to see what you come up with.

You have until Sunday 16 January… 8pm GMT to place your entry for this challenge. Have fun!


We have a winner for last weeks sponsored challenge, and we’ve also chosen our Top and Totally Fab 5...

Here are the winners:
