The Decoy Bride

This week a very nice thing happened - over a hot cuppa tea, my lovely, talented (should I mention she makes AMAZING cakes and that I must write a book about her - yes) friend mentions 'gasp, I've seen a fantastic film you will just love! I must lend it to you because you will just DEVOUR IT!'

Cut to later when lovely friend gives me her beloved copy of said film - The Decoy Bride. Which is very gorgeous of her in itself because - friend just happens to be madly in swoondom with David Tennant - so handing over a precious DVD is a true pal gesture in itself. Anyways...

She is right. My friend rocks! See The Decoy Bride whenever, however you can. In fact I'm posting the trailer via legitimate sources here and there's even a buy link with it and everything!

It is the best rom com movie ever. And has just shot to number one in my top ten list.

And guess what. I went and got my very own copy this weekend. That's how very good it is.

Thank you lovely friend Linda. Not only are you a cake genius you are a Movie and Romance Guru too! Kudos! And yes one day I will write that cake genius book - and she will be in love with David Tennant and most definitely keep chickens. It will occur. Stay tuned.

Apologies For Lateness

Apologies if Amazon dot com customers tried to get Nanny free yesterday and failed. The system has a time lag and I'm told it went free at 10pm UK time.

So without further ado the great news is that it's free now! Here's the link again. And so sorry you had a wait! Hope you get your copy.

One Crazy Cup Cake Weekend

Tomorrow I'm going to a fundraiser Zumbathon. Yes. That's two hours of Zumba. Much water will be consumed is all I will say.

So for the last few days I've been baking for Britain (to take along some token cupcake offerings). It also happens to be littlest's birthday in a few short weeks so I'm freeze baking with abandon for that. Cupcakes are go and the oven's a bit tired right now.

(Note - none of said baked goods have been consumed by my dieting self - brownie points to me, bum wiggle!) But hard on the resolve. Though I think, given my low baking ranking, they look pretty beautiful (said in a Texan accent) why thank you.

So here's the fruits of my labours.

First ... the Mine's A Mojito Cupcake. It features - wait for it - lime icing and mint matchmaker nuggets. Choc rum sponge naturellement. That's a scooby snack for grown ups. Yum!

Second of all comes a sweet treat close to my daughters' hearts ... the Crunchie Choc Cupcake. Complete with a dollop of glossy goo-some choc and crunchie bits.

Fingers crossed all that exercise whets appetites for the hard stuff! Me, I'll just suck on a lettuce leaf and die quietly.
