QUICK STEP | BIRTHDAY CUPCAKE DECORATION

If there's one thing everyone can appreciate on their birthday it's a cupcake. Make them a whole batch and it's safe to say you'll more than likely make their day. With my mum's birthday coming up this month I thought I would show you my fail safe decorating tips for the perfect birthday cupcake that pretty much anyone will "ooh" and "ahhh" over. 
Birthday Cupcake Decoration

You will need:

+ Cupcakes (no kidding!)shop bought or homemade will do just fine.
+ Vanilla Cream Frosting (homemade or shop bought)
+ Rainbow Sprinkles
+ Birthday Candles

+ Star Piping Nozzle

+ Plastic Piping Bag
+ Prior to decorating your cupcakes you will need to ensure you've put together your piping bag correctly. Unsure what to do? It's really simple! Start off by snipping the tip of your bag (closed end) and gradually keep snipping until your nozzle fit's snuggly. There should be no spaces between the bag or nozzle so ensure you take time and care to get it right. Once you've got the nozzle placed perfectly it's time to add your frosting. 
+ Twisting the top of your piping bag isn't necessary, instead just hold it closed with one hand and use your other hand to hold the bag nearer to the bottom.
+ Begin frosting in the centre of your cupcake, ensuring you apply pressure to the bottom of your piping bag.
+ Guide the tip around the cupcake in a circular motion keeping pressure constant as you move quickly and confidently. This isn't the time to panic!
+ End in the centre with a burst of pressure.
+ Once you're happy with your cupcake swirl it's time to make it pretty. Any decorations are fine but particularly for a birthday cupcake I think classic rainbow sprinkles and candles are perfect. 
+ Enjoy

HIGH FIVE FRIDAY

Ferm Chalkboard Calendar Wall Decal
1. It's A Date
The idea of having a full sized wall calender in my home is an appealing one. You'd definitely never miss an important appointment or lunch date again now would you?
Ginger Pumpkin Scones
2. New Season New Flavours 
I'm done with summer, infact I've had it! I'm looking forward to the arrival of orange leaves, fresh cool mornings and late afternoon sunshine. With that said one of my favourite things about Autumn is indeed the arrival of new flavours and food combinations that couldn't be enjoyed any other time of the year. First recipe I want to try is this delicious ginger, pumpkin scone one from Fabtastic Eats. Get the recipe here.

3. Walk, walk, fashion baby
It's here, it's finally here and whilst I'm a upset I couldn't accept some of my invitations for LFW due to work commitments. I am extremely excited to see what lies ahead over the five next days. In particular the Ashish, Marques'Almeida and Topshop Unique shows.
shoes @ Victoria Beckham Spring 2015
4. Posh Being Scary
I've already been instagramming like crazy about the footwear on display at Victoria Beckham's SS'15 NYFW show but this leopard style have definitely stole my heart without any indication of it returning. I want them on my feet now!
Quote time motivation intention
5. Quote of the week 
Time is precious, choose wisely how you spend it, who you spend it with and how much you spend on certain areas of your life. I feel extremely overwhelmed sometimes from the amount of work load I take on. Looking at my weekly schedule on a Sunday evening can sometimes leave me feeling a little beaten at the lack of time dedicated to just being me and enjoying life around me. With that said during those moments I try not to let it consume me and instead ensure I work harder on sharing my time equally between work and oh so important play.

Some weeks I feel like you go to bed on Monday and you wake up to find it's Friday. Its been one of those weeks. Fast but oh so very busy. Let the weekend begin...
