Cupcake 126... Food for Thought

Morning Cupcake Lovers! It doesn’t seem that long since I was last here writing a post, but here we are again. Time for another Cupcake! Valentine’s Day will be with us before we know it. For those of you in the UK, have you noticed the days getting longer? Isn’t it lovely? Our fabby Guest Designer, Sari, from Sweden, only gets about five hours of daylight each day at the moment! I guess the silver lining is that in the summer, she can craft all day!! ;)

What absolutely gorgeous wedding creations you made last week. Thank you so much for playing along and sharing your work with us. We hope you have as much fun with us this week.

But before I get to that, if you’d like a chance to pick a Challenge for us, and Guest Design for the week of your Theme, you’ll need to take a look at our competition. It closes at 8pm GMT on Sunday 30 January, so be quick.

This week, Scrummylicious Donna has chosen:

***Food for Thought ***

At this time of year, with New Years Resolutions still flying around, food, drink and diets are fresh in everyone’s minds. So we’d like to see your projects incorporating this.

You have until Sunday 30 January … 8pm GMT to place your entry for this challenge. Have fun!
