Raspberry and White Chocolate Cupcakes

I baked a batch of cakes at the weekend using a simple plain sponge recipe with a sprinkling of white chocolate chips. The frosting was a bit of an experiment, but my god it tasted good! I fused white chocolate, butter, icing sugar, syrup, single cream and creme de framboise together and piped on the top and WAH-LAH! Delicious cupcakes <3

English Rose

Today, I found out that I am a direct decendant of Anne boleyn. Not sure if that's a good thing or not, considering she got the chop, but it reminded me that back in June, I got involved in a Henry VIII inspired photoshoot in the middle of a creepy forest just outside of Leeds. It was an epic day, and with Adam Fussell behind the lens, it's bound to result in an incredible set of photos. Check out the epic tudor costumes...

Borrowers Tea Party

I started making these miniature teacup//teapot//cuckoo clock necklaces earlier this year, and I still have a few left. They on either a silver plated or gold plated 18" chain.

If you want to hang one of these little treats around your neck, they will set you back a mere six british pounds. Mail me: leanne_d44@hotmail.com <3

Handmade Cards

I totally forgot about these cards!!! I started making these cupcake cards a couple of years ago!!

Here's some others that I've also made...

Wedding Gift

It was my friends' wedding last Saturday, and buying the right present is always hard, especially when it's off of a gift list. So, as a little extra, I made these champagne toppers out of card, ribbon and netting, to give my gift a more personalised touch....

Here's a little sneak peak at some unedited photographs that are going to be featured in a photography/illustration zine, created and designed by myself and thomas key illustration...

to be continued.........


So, I got a new camera, about a month ago now, and me and tommy decided to try our hands at a stop motion movie. We kind of made the theme up as we went along, but it actually into a well rounded story (at least I think so!). Not bad for a first attempt. But watch this space...once I have a tripod, I will start making some less-jerky movies.
