Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe is the second book about Issy and her little cupcake cafe in Stoke Newington. I really enjoyed the first book and I was pleasantly surprised that the second book in the series was just as good as the first book.

I’m really proud of myself right now! I made my first batch of decorated sugar cookies with royal icing. They’re not perfect but they look pretty good and they tasted great!

I’m not very good at cut out Christmas cookies. I always have problems rolling out the dough. I’ve made gingerbread cookies a few times but it usually takes me hours! This last weekend I went on a cookie decorating course and I’m going to try some decorating this weekend. It’s time to get over my fears of royal icing!

I love going out for breakfast. I used to go out to brunch every Sunday with my girlfriends for pancakes, eggs and smoothies. The credit crunch pretty much ruined that for us the last few years

I haven’t bought any ice cream for about five months. I’ve been churning out all sorts of different flavors since I bought my ice cream maker. I’m really excited about making seasonal flavors for Christmas this year!
