    Default Cupcakes, swiss rolls and bunting!!

    This is what I`ve been making during the past few weeks to sell and raise funds. What do you think?

    ohhhhh they're really lovely! Do you go to Markets with them? Is it to raise money/awareness for Rupert's Fund or other charities? I know someone who does 'sock muffins', kinda like the towel cupcakes you have there.

    Hi Desrae,
    Thank you, yes, I usually pass the money to Tania now to go through CavalierMatters, then she can give the money to any of "our" Cavalier causes. I had made all these for a stall on July 9 near to where I live but after setting up the stall and having one table full of facecloth
    cakes and bunting - there was a cloudburst and we had a downpour of rain and a severe gust of wind!

    Sadly my gazebo snapped and the rain poured in onto the stall.

    All the things were fine as they are all in cellophane bags but the stall and all it`s decorations were soaked through!
    I did have 2 other tables with a tombola and books and DVD`s for sale which were OK too, so although I had to take away all the handmade stuff, we were amazed to find that we had made 153.00 !!

    Felt a miffed though as I had spent weeks making all these cupcakes, swiss rolls, buns and loads of different bunting and I couldn`t sell any of it!

    The weather this year has certainly been strange and unprdictable!

    Thank you Margaret.

    My sister has been knitting our gnomes again for our Christmas stall, I`ve got to try to catch up with her now! We have a good system going - she knits and I sew, stuff and knit beards for them! But, she has knitted about 20 whilst I`ve been making the cupcakes etc.- so I`m way behind!!!!!!!!

    My OH is going away for a few days this week so I`ll be able to get on a bit faster and not have to clear everything away to eat at the dining table every night! Yippee.........a few days of not cooking full meals every night too!!!!!!!

    They look fantastic. Always wanted to be able to make things like that but I have never been very good with knitting and sewing.

    Thank you. I do love making things, I`m really into crafts of all kinds, but when I can make things to raise funds for my passion in life - Cavaliers - then I think I`m lucky!
