I don't bake as often as I would like to at all, it's just a combination of having very little spare time, having to plan ahead to get all the ingredients (I always forget something) and there only being two of us plus pug at home to eat a whole tray of cakes but I say that like it's a bad thing!
I love baking though, and what I lack in skill I make up for in enthusiasm. A girl at work regularly bakes amazing stuff and is really into her gadgets, perfecting her mixes and trying new things...I want to be more like her! I've recently found some really cute cake decorating supplies from makebake at www.makebake.co.uk - there's literally everything on here to do with cakes on there from mixers and edible printers(!) to things like sprinkles and ribbons.
They also do some pretty sweet (see what I did there?) cupcake decorations on there too, these are my favourites - some are really quirky and kitsch but they're all absolutely amazing:
I think the lips, tiara and the gold butterfly are my favourites since the diamante ones aren't actually edible. Um, now I just have to make my cakes look as good as these accessories, they always taste good but they never look quite as perfect as I'd like. Maybe I'll just point the girl at work who's good at baking to the site and ask her to bake me some cakes.
