My other award is the "One Lovely Blog Award" from a wonderful blog Raising Z. What a cute award and I am humbled in accepting it.

The rules of the "One Lovely Blog Award" are:

~Accept the award
~post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
~pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.
~Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

15 other blogs!!!! Well, I have decided to space this award out (see no rule follower here!!)
and I will bestow the award when I discover a new blog I want my followers to know about. I will link them back to this post here too! So you could say this post is a work in progress!!

I had a funny old day yesterday, typical in my life but it ended with a Cupcake Cooking class taught by one of the best cupcake makers in WA. Definitely a great way to end a weird day. Anyhoo check back soon to see the wonderful cupcakes and a fool proof cupcake mix. Here is a pic of some of the Mars Bar cupcakes that were made:

I know, they look and tasted awesome. I want to make my own batch first though before I blog about the awesome lesson so make sure you come back soon!!
