Perfect Vanilla Cupcakes from Glorious Treats

So we had a special 2nd birthday party to go to on the weekend, and I was asked if I could make some cupcakes. Being the perfectionist I am, and not into making cake from a packet (and I don't judge anyone who does- I just like to make food from scratch when I can), I hopped on the internet to look for the perfect vanilla cupcake...and found it pretty much straight away! Thanks to Glory at Glorious Treats.

On Friday night, I stopped into the supermarket on my way home from work, gathered all my ingredients, drove home, popped on my cutest apron and got to work.

The only problem I had with this recipe was that is said to fill the cupcake patties 2/3 of the way up, which lead to overflowing cupcakes *sad face* . Although they tasted delicious, they weren’t 100% perfect (being anal, again!!), but I still had time to make another batch, which I filled half way up, and they came out PERFECT!! Yay!!

I then made the cream cheese/butter cream icing and dyed it pink. They turned out so pretty! My lovely friend Tracy-Lee, who is the baking queen in our group of ladies said- “oh my, these really do taste as good as they look!”.  Needless to say, I was a little pleased with myself.

The recipe for these little heavenly morsels is here and the icing here. I am so glad I found Glory’s blog! I’m looking forward to trying more of her recipes.

Sugary kisses,

Miss Molly's Music- Pat Capocci

Oh my word, I can't believe I haven't written a post about this fella...Pat Capocci is one of the best rockabilly artists, in my opinion, in Australia. He is uhh-mazing on the ol' axe, writes the catchiest songs and is one of the most down to earth and lovely guys I have met. I don't normally like to talk to musicans because if they turn out to be a wanker, it puts me off their music, haha! But Pat is so friendly, and you can really tell that music is his life, and he has got a lotta life in him.

I'll let his music speak for it's self- here are a few of my favouite songs.

Pat also plays in a few other bands around Sydney, with The Twilight Rhythem Boys and also in Danny & The Cosmic Tremors. I had to pop in a few of their songs too. If you see any of these guys headed your way- please go and check them out! I guarantee you will not be dissapointed!

Check out his website for more information.

Oh and sorry ladies, he's taken!

Christmas is possibly my favourite time of the year. I love being around my family, giving gifts, eating food and of course having a drink and enjoying myself.
This year we had a christmas brunch at my Mama's house. It was an amazing spread of the most delicious food, with the best company too, of course! Gifts were given, drinks were drunk, and the Xbox got a good work out, with all of us having a go on the Kinect. So  much fun!
We left Mama's around 1 and made our way down to my in-laws for a hot lunch, and stayed for a seafood dinner, and more drinks! It was a great day. I love my family.
