Beyond chocolate....

Well I finished my garland but I think I might move it from the picture wall and put it somewhere else, maybe hanging from a doorway.
It looks kind of sad hanging there. My favourite image that I used is this bunny couple below - arent they adorable, Mr Bunny's outfit is so smart and they look so happy and content, I wonder what he is taking out of his pocket?

I made some cupcake nests the other day as I visited my godson Alex.
I love being a godmother, and its a yearly tradition for me to go see them for Easter bearing gifts - some new clothes for the Easter weekend and of course chocolate eggs.
The cupcakes were a hit with the kids, Alex kept sneaking up to lick off all the green icing...typical Alex! he's a sweetheart!



I was telling Vanessa last week that my husband's Uncle owns a cake shop, 'The Trianon' .
I try to avoid going past because it always smells so good haha...
anyway yesterday they were featured in Sydney's main newspaper,
The Sydney Morning Herald in a lifestyle article 'Beyond Chocolate'.
They talked about different traditions that happen during Easter and how different cultures celebrate. Its great in Sydney because we love our diverse multi-culture society!
This is the picture from the article. Greek decorative Easter candles -these are given to children for lighting after mass on Easter Sunday.
