This is a bucket that is filled with cupcakes and flowers and wrapped with a lace ribbon
What a lovely gift and can be very inexpensive
We have baked cupcakes to order for over 6 years and so know this will be popular
Now how tomake the cupcake bouquet . . .
You will need
- 175g (6oz) butter
- 175g (6oz) caster sugar
- 175g (6oz) self-raising flour
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
For the buttercream:
- 225g (8oz) butter
- 450g (1lb) icing sugar
- 2–3 tbsp milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Pink food colouring (gel/ paste is best)
For your cupcake bouquet:
- 7–12 prepared vanilla cupcakes (depending on the size of your pot)
- Cocktail sticks
- Polystyrene to fit your pot and 1 inch shorter than the top
How to make
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius/Fan 160 degrees Celsius/350 degrees Fahrenheit/Gas mark 4 and line a 12 hole cupcake tin with paper cases.
2. Put the butter, caster sugar, eggs and vanilla extract into the bowl of a free-standing mixer (or you can use a handheld electric whisk and mixing bowl). Sift in the flour and beat for 1 to 2 minutes until light and creamy. Divide the mixture between the paper cases.
3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until well risen and golden brown. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
4. Meanwhile, prepare the buttercream. Beat the butter until soft and creamy. Sift the icing sugar and add to the creamed butter in two stages, mixing on a low speed. When fully incorporated, add the milk and vanilla extract and beat for 3 to 5 minutes on a higher speed. Mix in a little pink food colouring using the tip of a cocktail stick until you reached your desired shade.
5. Spoon the pink buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a small star nozzle and swirl it on top of the cupcakes, from the centre outwards.
6. Place the polystyrene in the flowerpot. Put two cocktail sticks in each area where you want a cupcake. Around the sides, insert the cocktail sticks at a 45° angle, otherwise the cupcakes will fall off. You will need to raise the centre of the pot with scrunched-up tissue paper.
7. Slide a cupcake onto each pair of cocktail sticks, adjusting as needed to cover polystyrene.

Welcome to 2016
I hope it brings you happiness, success, good health and peace.
We have had a lovely break and treated ourselves to a little seaside break. How lovely the seaside is in winter, the crashing waves against the cliff tops, changes in light levels casting spectacular rays over the coastlines. A chance to get a beach to yourselves. Fresh air and lots of layers to wrap up warm with as you enjoy a briefer beach picnic! We travelled over to North Yorkshire a beautiful area of the country and close to our hearts.
Here are a few pictures of the places we visited with thanks to the great photography.
First stop was Northallerton A busy market town with a wealth of independent shops and good quality chains. Twice weekly markets are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays
Next stop was Thirsk
Once referred to as ‘God’s Country’, Thirsk is a lovely place
Again, a rural market town with a medieval cobbled market square.
I loved the fact that most of the shops still have their original frontage and old coaching inns have enduring charm. It’s market day on a Monday and Saturday.
Nest stop was Stokesley
Not as big as the previous two places but just as charming.
With independent shops and gorgeous houses it would be a lovely place to live! Great community spirit and friendly shopkeepers. Certainly will return. Shop at the weekly market every Friday.
Next overnight in Staithes
A lovely seaside harbour town with lovely higgledypiggledy houses a lovely warm and friendly place. We stayed overnight in Dottys Bed and Breakfast a lovely french vintage inspired place with a lovely friendly caring owner who could not do enough for us. The Accommodation was lovely, very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. The owner even took us to the local pub where we met all the locals who were so friendly and welcoming. It was Amazing!
Next stop was Whitby
Well how lovely is this place. A great mix of shops, harbour, sandsend beach, Whitby Abbey walk lots of steps but worth the views at the top! You can spend all day or weekend here. Lots going on all year round so check before you go.
Well I hope this has inspired a visit to any or all of the above beautiful places. Have a great 2016 whatever you get up to.
