The past few weeks have been quite emotional from our family point of view. I said goodbye to two sisters who are off Au Pairing in London and Spain and to my husband who had to fly home to renew his passport. On top of that we had two birthdays, my sister, who's going to Barcelona, 20th and my Grandmother's 70th, so cupcakes had to be made. I made the yummy treats with fresh raspberries picked especially for us by my sister and little cousins from their allotment outside their house. You can see more on the wonders of said allotment over on my other sister's blog, Bluebells and Bunting and I will be doing a Sunday Samples this coming Sunday on my method for these cupcakes.
