It’s the return of the Great British Bake Off!
Are we excited people?
I know I am.
I celebrated the occasion by coming home from work on Wednesday night, cleaning the kitchen, then baking up a batch of Earl Grey Cupcakes! (It was cake week after all!) I had been speaking to my lovely new co-worker Brian about them, as most afternoons he has himself a cup of Earl Grey, and the smell wafts over to my desk – I love it, but I just don’t like drinking the stuff!
These days instead of walking to work merrily swinging a bag/box of cakes, I strapped this little box of cakes to the back of my bicycle and cycled to work with them! They made my co-workers very happy, we shared them out after lunch, and with them fulfilled many things:
1. Celebrating the return of GBBO
2. Spreading joy through cake
3. …….and it just so happened to be my one month work-iversary! Happy one month to me!
Anyhow, along with making cake this week, I also made something a little cake-themed! A Cupcake Apron from the book 101 Fabric-byFabric Ways to Sew a Metre.
I used some printed and plain cottons from my stash, and didn’t have any ric-rac so just used some plain 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon for trimming. Here are some close ups of the details:

You can also see, in the background of this shot, my already fairly extensive apron collection! Hahah!
