Wedding - Finishing Touches!

I've been so rubbish at keeping my blog updated but I'm hoping in the next few weeks to give it a bit of a make-over and start to post more regularly, that's my plan any way!

For any one who was following my posts in the run up to my wedding, I finally have some photos to share of some of the finishing touches to our big day!

Experimenting with Wedding Favour Ideas

The past few months have been so hectic, as well as running the website looking after the little one, hubby-to-be and papillons and trying to keep the house in some kind of state of tidiness, there has been allsorts to do recently with planning the wedding. We're nearly at the point where everything is sorted but one this left to decide is the wedding favours, I have decided to make biscuits or cookies of some sort and have been experimenting with different recipes.

One that I really enjoyed making were sugar cookies with glass heart centres.

These turned out so well and I was really pleased with them but I think I have decided I probably won't do these for the wedding as we've got lots of little ones coming and when broken the 'glass' sugar can actually be quite sharp and I have visions of there being an accident!

I did make a little video of how to make these biscuits, it's actually really simple and my son really enjoyed helping to make them too!

The full recipe and tutorial is also on the website.

I will keep on experimenting with different ideas and ways to present them.
