Go on girls, get cupcake decorating for your hen party


Yesterday evening I had a wonderful time learning how to decorate cupcakes with And The Dish Ran Away With The Spoon.  Whether you are wanting to plan a more alternative and meaningful hen party, or you’re planning on making your own wedding cake from cupcakes, you should consider having a cupcake decorating party.

Our evening looked a bit like this – just at night – I hope to share a photo of my cupcakes when they’re available…

There are some wonderful businesses out there offering these services, and tailored specifically for hen parties and weddings.  They can be found all over the country, but some in particular are a bit special, I think, because they are passionate and committed to using high quality ingredients – fair trade, free range, organic, seasonal, local.

So today I’m paying homage to them.  Girls, its time to roll up your sleeves, pop on your apron, and learn a great new skill – and have a good giggle with your girl friends while you’re at it.
