Pink Ribbon Morning Tea @ Playgroup

Well the gods were not kind to us today at all, we were meant to have a lovely sunny day so that we could hold a Pink Ribbon Morning Tea at our regular playgroup. However the weather was less then desirable which meant a change of venue was needed so I put my hand up to have a "wet weather playgroup" at my house so we could still raise money for a worthy cause.

As it was held at my place I was able to quickly whip up a few pretties to help set the right mood for the morning tea.

Here a few photos I managed to snap but please excuse the quality of them as I really have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to manual settings on my Nikon. I hope to undertake an online course in the near future on how to get the best out of our DSLR camera then there will be no stopping me.

This was my first attempt at Cake Pops & although the very talented Angie from Bakerella has nothing at all to fear from me I still think they turned out pretty good.

The vanilla cupcakes! These gave me such dramas yesterday while baking them.

Luckily I had a little bit of hot pink tissue paper around the place so I could make some cute pom poms to hang from the ceiling fan. I'm going to move them into Sahara's room later today as permanent decorations for her.

October is such a big month with different charity events so as well as donating to the Breast Cancer Foundation I will also be donating 10% of my sales from the upcoming Mummas Fair to Stillbirth Foundation Australia. International Baby Loss Week was held 9th - 15th October this year.

Wow! These are amazing! You are one talented baker and designer. I love cooking, but baking definitely takes another set of skills.
