Cupcake 127... Old Macdonald had a Farm

Hello and Good Morning! Are you ready for another Cupcake? Yes? Excellent!

Well, I have to tell you, you certainly had me licking my lips with your gorgeous creations last week. As always, thank you for taking the time to play along. It is such a pleasure visiting your creations.

Before I get on to our new challenge, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Victoria for being such a faberoony Cupcake. Jelly makes the most wonderful projects and is a lovely girl too. Sadly for us, Jelly has decided to leave Cupcake, I hope you will all join me in wishing her every success for the future.

Our Challenge Competition has now closed. There are loads of fantastic ideas; watch your inbox, because I could be contacting you very soon. I’ll also be organising our next Guest Designer shortly, so if you were a Top 5 winner during January, you could be hearing from me too.

This week, it’s my turn to pick a theme:

***Old Macdonald had a Farm ***

We’d like to see your creations incorporating something you would find on a farm…

You have until Sunday 06 February … 8pm GMT to place your entry for this challenge. Have fun!
