Duck Race and Cupcakes

On Friday it was the little man's nursery duck race. It is an annual fundraisng event and this year was raising money for meningitis awareness. The brook at the side of nursey plays host to the event, and parents and children are invited to name and sponsor plastic ducks to float in the races.

We had great fun choosing the names or our ducks and it was such a great cause i decided to make some cupcakes that could be sold on the refreshment stall.

My cakes were not exactly what i had planned after having a little disaster with a bottle of blue food colouring, but the least said about that the better. So after having a change of tact i set about making some tasty treats involving stars and butterflies. Just Bake kindly donated some colourful edible star decorations that teamed up well with my vanilla buttercream star piping.

 Luckily the weather stayed dry for the event and we had lots of fun watching the races.The Little man really got into it clapping as the ducks came floating past. We even had a few winners!

The cakes went down a treat too.
