Happy Monday! On Friday I wanted to re-visit donuts as, hey, I love them and I hadn't tried my hand at making glassy ones for ages now. I made these 5 whilst giggling all the while! I feel a new craze coming on! These frosted, be-sprinkled yummies are currently in my Etsy shop. Do I say far too often that I'm going to have to make myself some beads? Cause, yeah, I gotta make myself some donuts!
And then because the donuts were going so well I decided to get really crazy! Cherry pie anyone?? I'm really pleased with how this bead turned out. This one is also in my Etsy shop and I shall be creating a pie series, I do believe! What do you think?
I had a lovely weekend. Saturday Steve and I went out for lunch and visited the Battle of Britain war memorial which was both fun and sobering. Seeing those names on the wall is heartbreaking but fills you with gratitude. The planes were really neat and the view is spectacular to boot! It is free to visit and I would highly recommend stopping by.
Sunday our friends, Lee and Sue, came over and we had a wonderful time. I baked some banana cupcakes and made some fresh cream cheese icing to top them off. MMM! Sue had a go on my torch and made two REALLY good beads! She even did a nice dotty bead for her second try! Afterwards we had a nice Indian followed by cupcakes and homemade ice cream :) I had banana and strawberry to go with my banana cupcake :D It was YUMMY! Have I convinced you to buy an ice cream machine yet?! Sue said she was going to move in just for the sweets! heehee :)
What did you guys get up to this weekend? Anything interesting?
Have a great week!
