Today was the carnival in my town. We are really lucky as the carnival parade comes right past my house. We danced on the side of the street and had a lovely time watching all the floats go past. After the parade, we followed it up to the Abbey where there were stalls and a fair. I took some photographs of Elle in her Hollie-in-bloom dress. She had such a lovely time and went on many rides. She is such a brave girl. This swing chair ride went faster than i expected and her face just had the biggest grin on! It always makes my heart swell watching her have fun.
Mia watched a little of the parade but then fell asleep on my chest (throughout the noisy parade!!) so i snuggled her up in her pram and she stayed asleep the rest of the time
Today, i had a little parcel of Wilton nozzles for my piping bag. I have always loved baking and seem to be enjoying it more and more and wanting to learn about cake decorating. I have bought myself a book on making your own sugarcrafted decorations and piping techniques and i am so excited to give everything ago. Yesterday, i made chocolate chip cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting.
