::: Isle of Kerrera :::

We recently visited the Isle of Kerrera one evening. 

It was fairly wet and cold!

But the views were good and the boat ride short which suits me fine.

We had dinner at Kerrera Marina which is great if you love seafood but extremely basic for vegetarians. Definitely a must see.

::: Isle of Skye :::

We recently visited the Isle of Skye.

The scenery is amazing, beautiful, like most of Scotland. 

I particularly loved the feral goat sign! I never knew you got them in Scotland.

The drive there and back was just as wonderful as the island.

And Steve is a fantastic photographer :)

::: Mama Duke's :::

I've finally launched a cupcake website!

Mama Duke's Cupcakery of Oban, Argyll.

The pictures are not uploaded yet and there is still some work to do but I can't wait to get it all up and running. 

You can see it here.

If you have an old Internet Explorer browser you may come across some problems, it works perfectly on phones and tablets etc.

::: Sorrel :::

Sorrel is a lovely little Araucana chicken who we originally got to replace Spice (now that she's a rooster) but we love Spice and Sorrel will make a lovely companion for him as well as Cinnamon. 

Can't wait to get Sage later in the year then our little chicken family will be complete.

::: Chocolate Centre Cupcakes :::

I made some regular vanilla cupcakes and before they were done I put a square of Dairy Milk chocolate in the centre.

Then topped them with cream cheese frosting (recipe from The Hummingbird Bakery book)

And grated chocolate on the top, yum!

::: Herman the German (Friendship Cake) :::

We got Herman from a friend and were told to look after him.

If we put him in the fridge he would die!

We 'fed' him and stirred him. 

And watched him bubble for ten whole days.

Then we added apples and cinnamon and baked him.

He's so tasty!
