  68. Count me in! I love Cath Kidson. I have all of her books, but I've never seen this one.

    Love the cupcakes you made! I have the same problem of eating too many when I make them. Ever since I was little, I've made them with food coloring. One color for the cake part and another for the frosting. I'd sign up for the class, but I think Brisbane is a bit far to go.

    Sorry I've been so absent lately. Work is just crazy.

    Hugs,
    Tamerie

  69. I {heart} Cath Kidson so much! I wish it was easier to find her stuff in the US! Hope I win!
