Butter Icing

Is there anything better than baking on a Friday afternoon?

I have been a bit poorly today with an eye infection.  It is difficult to read or look at the computer screen for too long so I wasn't able to study today. At least that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it, have one red eye to prove it too ;)

So to cheer myself up, I decided to bake cup cakes with butter icing.  I'm sure hubby will be happy too when he gets home from a long day at work.  Love how easy they are to bake and how quickly it all gets done.  The gorgeous blue flowers/snow flakes are from my sweet friend Mandie from whispering Christmas dreams.  She had sent them in my Christmas Box back in October but I hadn't been able to use them yet.  I had a couple on their own whilst decorating & they are yummy. Hope you like the photos.

Hope you all have a fab & cosy weekend,




  1. Those look yummy, Lily! Butter icing is my favourite. Back when I got married, I requested butter icing on my cake. My grandparents (both retired professional bakers) were aghast, but it was the best cake I could have asked for!

    I sure hope your eye infection clears up soon. My whole family had pink eye in December and it was terrible.

  2. They look really pretty! Did hubby like 'em? LOL!! Hope you and your eye feel better soon!


  3. Thanks for baking these lovely cup cakes honey. As I said, they are so tasty, I find it hard to stop eating them! :)

  4. Mmmmmm...those look so yummy! I love cupcakes!

  5. Hi Lily,
    I just adore cupcakes, and yours look so delicious. Butter frosting is my favorite. Hope your eye gets better real quick, so you can get back to your normal routine. Have a wonderful Sunday!

  6. Those cupcakes look yummy Lily! Baking always makes me feel better too. I hope your eyes is feeling better. It is a good reason to take a break from studying if you ask me ;). Hope you have a great week!
