Simply Scrumptious Butterfly Cupcakes......

Believe when I say I know how lucky I am to be married to my Darlin', he treats me like a Queen & I have to say there are not many men I know who would bake scrumptious butterfly cupcakes with whipped cream - yummo! Not only do they look scrumptious boy boy they taste even better, just sooooo melt in your mouth delicious. I should have put them on my cottagey shabby cake stand but Mr MP&CC had already packed them away in this container & put them in the fridge.
On top of all this Mr MP&CC is cooking tea tonight - Chinese - mine is *Lemon Chicken* the aroma wafting through this house really is to die for. So let me know what you guys think about these little beauties & if you Darlin's bake/cook!

Ok so I have to make a confession here I have just realised that I have gone over my 100th post & I believe it is customary to post a *giveaway*. Well I kinda need some help here please as I have no idea how to make up a link & post it onto my blog soooooooo if anyone out there who can help me with this it would be greatly appreciated. Also I have to make something up so I'm kinda looking at next Wednesday to post this ok.

It looks like we have dodged the flood this time but Grafton, Maclean & Kempsey have all flooded since yesterday. I heard on the news tonight of a 71 year old man drowned at Bello & my heart really goes out to his family, is one thing to loose your belongings another to loose a loved one.
Marilyn I hope you are ok hun & are a bit higher up down there than the rest of Kempsey, thinking of you sweet. A.M I hear Brisbane is copping it again thinking of you also & hope you can still get into your new home on Friday.

Lastly this for for Gail, we went to see *Cass's* exhibition today, her paintings & sculptures are incredible I tell you soooo much talent in one family, if I had the dosh I would have bought every piece of hers!

So that's me for today hope everyone is having great weekend & please don't forget if you know how to make up & add a link *please let me know*....

Yummo!They look soooo dainty!
Giveaway Huh? FUN!
I just did a Post and made people leave a comment and did a random draw...
If you want to create a 'Button" people can add to there sidebar I think you do it with Customise...Add gadget...And then Add picture add link...
That way that Picture becomes "linked" .
Hmmmm Clear as Mud Right????

I did'nt bother with a Button,Too hard for my Un PC mind:)

Now...I'm gonna have to try this out! These look GREAT!

How's the Chinese food in your area? I'm always curious as it is so diverse here in the states!!!

Happy the floods seem to have passed you by! Today I'm thankful that the storms around my home have subsided and we are left with beautiful weather.

Blessings and thank you for the precious post on my bloggie!

xoRebecca PS: Hope your outlook on things continue to get brighter and brighter! xo

Next time your wonderful hubby makes butterfly cakes I am coming for a cuppa! They just look so good.
I am high and dry out of flood reach but I can't get to work (not a bad thing hehehe). I am surrounded by water every way I look though. There is a bit of sun peeping here today though so fingers crossed.. Marilyn xoxo

Hi Lyn
When you get your website up and running and if you decide to list Mr. MP&CC I would be very interested in buying him!

Congrats on going over your 100th post. I could help you with the link for your post, let me know if you want me to via email

I've been thinking of you with the floods!!

So glad you managed to go to Cass's Exhibition, she is a very clever lil' sister, I would have loved to have seen it myself, but very glad now we didn't decide to drive up with the weather the way it is. I'll pass on your lovely compliment to her, she'll be thrilled

Hi Lyn,
I am so glad that you weren't affected in the foods this time around.
I am absolutly jelous that your hubby treated you to butterfly cakes & dinner. Adam is a fab cook too & I love it when he cooks (I only cook because we have to eat, I'm not one of those that enjoy doing it) I would put my hand up every night to clean up if he would cook! Pass on to your hubby that I think he is the bomb for treating you so well.
P.S: Havent forgot about the bunting instructions will organise it this week. xx
