Yesterday we had a lovely wander around Mayfield Lavender Farm in the North Surrey Hills.
It was our second wedding anniversary and I'd been wanting to visit the farm all summer!
The smell of the lavender in the air adds to the beautiful surroundings and I bought a bunch of dried lavender to bring home (so now our home smells lovely too)
The best time to visit the lavender farm from July to the end of August
The farm is a great environment for bees and it was great to see so many of them within the lavender
Last night I attended a cupcake decorating workshop arranged by The Crafter's Market and Creative Kat.
I have always wanted to learn how to decorate cupcakes and get my hands on a piping bag! I had a lovely night as it was a lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
We were shown how to make sugar paste flowers which was a bit tricky in the heat - my rose started out quite well but dried out very quickly and decided to flop. Definitely something to practice now I have been shown how to do them (mental note next time I try I will pick somewhere nice and cool to work).
We then moved onto fondant embossing and buttercream piping which I loved and will definitely experiment more with. There's just something wonderful about sprinkles and as you can see from my photo I wasn't shy with them.
I brought the 6 cupcakes home in a gift box and must confess to scoffing one of the chocolate ones for breakfast, it was yummy! Not sure the other 5 will survive the day!
