Celebrating with cupcakes....

A few weeks ago I won a giveaway on Renee's blog Nays Place. Renee is a kiwi living in Australia and often blogs about her sweet little girl who seems to provide endless entertain. Anyway Renee had been given some natural food colourings to try and then generously put them up as a giveaway. In the above photo you can see them on the right in that very small little box and that is all I was expecting to receive but as you can see Renee  sent me a parcel of goodies to share with my family, yummy mini Easter eggs and a box of cupcake mix so we had the perfect excuse to try out the food colourings.

I was going to keep them for the following weekend to make up with the girls but with the Royal wedding on last Friday we decided they would be the perfect royal treat to have while watching Kate and Wills tie the knot. The above photo was taken at night so is a bit on the yellow side but we iced them in 3 different colours of lime green, apricot and pink. The mix included the icing mix and the cute little polka dot cupcake cases.

The girls had fun decorating them with what I had on hand and in the above photo is one that Caitlin decorated with 2 cute tiny hearts which I thought was very appropriate for the occasion. Oh and if you haven't had enough of looking at the Royal wedding they have their own Flickr page here!

Thanks Renee for the extra goodies!!
